This is our popular entry level program. Swimmers learn the four competitive strokes: Front Crawl, Back Crawl, Breast Stroke, and Butterfly, as well as underwater skills and dive entries. With four skill stages, swimmers progress at their own rate through the program. Children learn to swim the FUN way – learning FUNdamental skills while enjoying the water. Low swimmer to teacher numbers accelerate learning. Our learn to swim program offers an exciting new world of aquatics to young people ages 4-9. For entry into the program, children should be comfortable in the water. Children will be assessed after the first week to place them in the correct level. The Jaws program operates twice weekly in three 12-week sessions through the year; swimmers are encouraged to take all three sessions for maximum benefit.
