One student per instructor. This type of lesson is necessary for infants and students under the age of three who are not water safe and who require more attention. It is also recommended for older students with extreme anxiety about the water or behavior that is non conducive to group lessons, once the anxiety or behavior is overcome, the older student can fit happily into a group lesson.
Up to 4 students per instructor. For children three years and older, of any grade level, who can follow direction and work effectively in a group situation. For most students this is the ideal lesson structure. We make every attempt to group students of comparable ability, as well as maturity and compatibility together.
Up to 8 parent/tot couples per instructor. This class is ideal for the parent who would like to take an active role, and more relaxed approach to the teaching process. Working as a group and individually, the class uses songs and simple drills to acclimate the child to the aquatic environment and begins teaching the back float survival skills. This class is for children under 2 years old.
Up to 6 students per instructor/coach who maybe in the water but most likely at this level on deck. For the ambitious student from age 5 through 15, who can swim 25 yards with effective flutter kick, on both their front and back. This curriculum provides a transition between swim lessons with an instructor in the water, and pre swim team orientation where the coach is on deck. Graduates from this program usually are able to swim all four strokes and confidently move on to joining a swim team.
These lessons are for adults who have fear of the water, or just for people that want to polish up on their strokes to be more efficient lap swimmers.
