About Lessons

Infant Survival Float - Ages 6 months - 15 months

 Designed for children 6 months+ and able to sit up, unassisted, for longer than 5 seconds. This is a basic survival skill. Your child will learn to rotate, from any underwater position, into a basic back float. They will be taught to rest and breathe on their back until help arrives. A child who enrolls in the Infant Survival Float program as an infant will learn the correct posture for swimming early which will facilitate learning at the next level. 

Timeline: Typically, an infant will take approximately 15 to 20 -- 10 minute lessons to attain these skills (4 days a week for 3 - 4 weeks). Registration is rolling so you can start any Monday where we have an open time spot.

Swim Float Swim - Ages 15 months - 3 Years

 This series of skills is taught to children who have begun walking and running. Toddlers are taught to utilize that cross-coordinated motion for movement through the water. Your child will be taught to swim face down with eyes open and when they need to breathe they roll on their back to float, rest and breathe. They can now flip back over onto their tummy  to continue swimming until he or she reaches a point of safety. This swim-float-swim sequence can be repeated as many times as is necessary to reach their target whether that be an adult or the side of the pool. 

Timeline: This skill set can be achieved in approximately 20 to 24 -- 10 minute lessons (4 days a week for 5 - 6 weeks). Registration is rolling so you can start any Monday where we have an open time spot. 


Swim Float Swim - Ages 3 - 5

 

Just like the swim float swim for toddlers, big kids are taught to utilize their cross-coordinated motion for movement through the water, however, this swim is more like a freestyle swim. He or she will be taught to swim face down with eyes open; roll on his or her back to take a floating breath or two when they need air; and then flip over onto their stomach to keep swimming. This swim-float-swim sequence can be repeated as many times as is necessary for fun and safety. This method easily transitions to a freestyle swim and teaches children not to "doggie-paddle" by using their muscle memory. 

Timeline: This skill set can be achieved in approximately 12 to 16 -- 10 minute lessons (4 days a week for 3 - 4 weeks). Registration is rolling so you can start any Monday where we have an open time spot.
