5:00 pm – 5:30 pm Infant and Child Aquatics (3 yrs and under) with Parent $50
Infant and Child Aquatics prepares young children to get ready to swim by emphasizing fun in the water. Parents and Children participate in several guided practice sessions that help kids learn elementary swimming skills, including water entry, bubble blowing, front kicking, back floating, underwater exploration and more.

5:35 pm – 6:05 pm Level I– Intro to Water Skills $50

6:10 pm – 6:40 pm Level I– Intro to Water Skills $50
Level 1 is designed for 3-6 year olds that are comfortable in the water on their own, with a flotation device. Instructors work carefully with participants to develop skills without a flotation device.

6:45 pm – 7:15 pm Level II– Fundamental Aquatic Skills $70
Those five years and older will enjoy Level II’s introduction to strokes, floating, and treading. Comfort in deep water for short periods of time without flotation is the only prerequisite. Swimmers will learn both front and back strokes and begin piecing it together to cover short distances.

7:20 pm – 7:50 pm Level III– Stroke Development $70
These swimmers will be getting their first taste of the elementary backstroke, sidestroke, and Breaststroke in addition to working on breathing and diving. There is also more emphasis placed on distance swimming, though fun remains a key component.
