Infant Rollback to Float Class

Age: 6-12+ months

Babies who are sitting independently and beginning to crawl learn how to roll onto their back to float, rest and breathe until they can be rescued. 

Parents also learn how to practice with their baby to reinforce skills learned in lessons. Once babies are over the age of one and walking, they return to learn the swim-float-swim sequence.

SCHEDULE:
Infant lessons are 4 days per week, Monday – Thursday
*10 minutes per lesson

This class takes an average of *6 weeks to complete
*
Lessons end on a performance based exit, not time-based, meaning we end each lesson on the student’s best performance of the skill we are working on that day, before they become fatigued. *All lessons are individualized to the unique needs and abilities of each student so the exact # of lessons will vary. 


Swim Float Swim

Ages 1 (and walking) to 3 Years Old

Children ages 1-3 learn to swim independently, roll onto their backs to rest and breathe, and continue the swim-float-swim sequence until the side of the pool or shore is reached. 

Our one-on-one instruction allows your child to be able to develop their swimming skills to the fullest age-appropriate physical ability.

Recreational skills and games are also a fun addition to incorporate at this age. 

SCHEDULE:Toddler lessons are 4 days per week, Monday – Thursday*10-15 minutes per lesson

This class takes an average of *8 weeks to complete

*Lessons end on a performance based exit, not time-based, meaning we end each lesson on the student’s best performance of the skill we are working on that day, before they become fatigued. *All lessons are individualized to the unique needs and abilities of each student so the exact # of lessons will vary.

Swim Float Swim

Age: 4-6+ Years Old

Children ages 4 and up learn to swim independently, roll onto their backs to rest and breathe, and continue the swim-float-swim sequence until the side of the pool or shore is reached. 

Lessons for this age group have a strong focus on productive, coordinated movements and stroke development. This provides a strong foundation for safety and teaches the prerequisite skills needed to advance to formal stroke techniques. 

Our one-on-one instruction allows your child to be able to develop their swimming skills to the fullest age-appropriate physical ability.

Recreational skills and games are also a fun addition to incorporate at this age.

Maintenance Lessons

All Ages

After your child has learned to swim and float independently, skill maintenance is crucial! As your child grows and develops, skills need to be fine-tuned and swimming ability should be constantly developed.

Maintenance classes can be scheduled anywhere from once or twice per week to once or twice per month, as needed.

Refresher Lessons

All Ages

If your child has not had the opportunity to practice regularly, skills have regressed or you notice bad habits, it’s time for a refresher!

These classes are scheduled as needed, typically at least once or twice per year.
