PROGRAM

COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

STARFISH (PARENT-TOT) Age: 9Mos - 3Yrs

SHARKS Age: 9 - 15Yrs

A familiar face, touch, and praise play a vital role in introducing babies to water adjustment, breath control, and enhancement of early developmental skills. Safety skills are an important part of this class. One parent per child required to participate in the water. Each class consists of 20 minutes in the water and 5 minutes dressing time before and after water time.

Jaws will drop! Instruction includes beginning through advanced skills. Beginners develop rhythmic breathing, learn safety skills, and receive instruction on basic strokes. Students advance at their own pace through strokes such as front crawl, backstroke, elementary backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, and sidestroke while increasing endurance. Completion of all of the stations prepares you to swim for your lifetime!

CLOWNFISH (PRESCHOOL) Age: 3 - 4Yrs Play is the way little ones learn! This instruction lays the groundwork for introductory swim skills through songs, games, and toys that teach water adjustment, and beginning stroke movement. Learning basic water safety is an important part of this class.

STINGRAYS Age: 5 - 8Yrs Cool rays of summer! Attentive instruction guides students through fundamental swim elements, including controlled rhythmic breathing, floating, basic strokes such as front crawl, backstroke, elementary backstroke and essential safety skills, while progressing at each student’s own pace. Instruction encourages confidence in the water and a solid foundation for further stroke development.

ADAPTIVE Age: 6 - 15Yrs Splash into success! This class is designed for children with disabilities. Learn water safety and swimming techniques in a safe, self-paced environment. Instruction is given in a one-on-one class enabling the student to learn more efficiently. Please call 972-205-2708 to register.

ADULT SWIM LESSONS Age: 16Yrs and up It’s never too late to learn! Instruction focuses on your personal swimming goals. Choose fundamental techniques such as breath control, floating, and treading, or improve your favorite stroke. Work at your own pace, improve swim skills, and gain water confidence. Enjoy swimming at any age!

Wally the Whale and Sophie the Seal want you to stay safe in the water. Wally and Sophie will be at swim lessons with even more words of wisdom and safety tips throughout the summer.
