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.
  • We encourage you to use our “come in your suit & leave wet” protocol while the weather is  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. You can find the breakdown of what skills must be mastered to earn certain coloredbands below.
  • A photo release has been added to the registration process.

GROUP LESSONS

Parent/Child Lessons - Saturdays @ 11AM
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 6-6:30PM OR 6:30-7PM
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. 
For ages 3yrs - 8yrs.
