SWIM LESSONS ARE CURRENTLY RUNNING

The next session begins JUNE 21, 2021

Group lessons will run in 8 week sessions. We will no longer be issuing monthly billing. You will pay per session, and the total amount will be required at registration.

Each session for Beginner & Advanced Beginner Lessons is $100 for the entire 8 weeks. Parent/Child will be $50

FOR BEGINNER & ADVANCED BEGINNER LESSONS

  • Details of each skill group will be laid out on the website(Kraken and Pool) to help you determine which group best suits your child.
    • Students will be given a swim test on their first day of lessons to assess their skills to determine which group they will be in (Beginner, Advanced Beginner).
  • If your child participates in any session and renews for the following session in the same group, they will continue where they left off on their progress card. They will not be required to start over.
    • In order for your child to move up in a skill group, they will be given a swim test to ensure they have mastered everything required for them to safely move on.
  • There will be bright orange markers on the wall where your child will sit to ensure 6 ft social distancing when they are not in the water with the instructor.
  • We encourage you to use our “come in your suit & leave wet” protocol while the weather is still nice and avoid the locker room if at all possible. This is not required! The locker rooms are open and able to be used.
  • We will be introducing progress cards for each student. 
    • We will also be issuing Achievement Wrist Bands to your child when they complete a certain skill set. We will inform you when your child is receiving a new band, and you will be invited on deck for photos and to celebrate their achievement. Each set of achievements will be a different color and they will keep all Achievement Bands they receive.
  • A photo release has been added to the registration process.
    • Due to COVID-19, our balcony & seating in our lobby is currently closed, but you will be able to watch all of your child's lessons via livestream on our Facebook page Kraken Swim School.
    • We will also be featuring your child on the Kraken Swim School Facebook when they earn a new Achievement Band.

GROUP LESSONS

Parent/Child Lessons - Saturdays @ 11AM or 12PM
Parent/Child lessons are designed to introduce infants and toddlers to the pool and to be comfortable in the water. Research shows that children frequently exposed to water for the first few years of life are more likely to learn to swim and be comfortable in the water as they get older.
These lessons are guided by an instructor to help parents introduce their child(ren) to the water. Parents are required to be in the water with their child(ren).
For ages 6mo - 36mo.


Beginner Group - Monday & Wednesday 12-12:30PM, 5:30-6PM, or 6-6:30PM
Beginner lessons are a child's first step to learning to be safe in and around the water and becoming a strong, independent swimmer. The children will learn how to float on their back and stomach, kick, tread water, and swim on their front and back. Participants must be able to sit on the side of the pool without their parents being on the pool deck and be able to follow instructions.
Students who receive Free/Reduced lunch at school are eligible for reduced lesson prices. Proper documentation must be provided.
All classes are closed to provide the best way for the child to learn independence in the water.

These lessons will teach the following skills:
  • Properly enter and exit a pool using the ladders and steps

Advanced Group - Tuesday & Thursday 12-12:30PM, 5:30-6PM, or 6-6:30PM
Once a child can swim a half-length of the pool, they are ready for Advanced Lessons.
Lessons will include further development of the freestyle stroke with rotary breathing and building the child's endurance level to swim a full length of the pool. We will also introduce backstroke, diving, and flip turns.
Children who complete the Advanced Beginner Lessons will have the knowledge and skills needed to be safe in and around the water. They will also be well prepared to join our Competition Team.
