Learn To Swim

Description

This class focuses on the most important, fundamental aspects of swimming such as going under water, developing a streamline body position, kicking, floating, and getting back to the wall after jumping in the pool. While practicing these swimming skills children will continue to strengthen their core muscles and develop gross motor skills. The movements involved in swimming also promote sensory integration.

Far too many young children drown because they have not been exposed to the water and they don’t know either the dangers it poses, or how to react if they fall into a pool.  Our instructors will motivate your child in a fun and exciting way so he or she can learn to swim as young as possible, and enjoy the water safely and confidently.

We do offer make ups, but the days/times we offer are not guaranteed to work for each family’s individual scheduling needs. A limited # of make ups are offered every Sat & Sun at 5 pm and most weekdays at 7 pm. Additional make up times are listed when parents submit prior absence notifications. We also offer make up days on Columbus day, Veterans day, several days (announced yearly) between Christmas and New Years, MLK day, Presidents’ day, & during our spring break holiday (announced yearly). Make ups can NOT be used to extend a session. If you are not renewing for the next session any unused make ups will expire on the last day of the session that your child is enrolled in. The summer session is sold separately therefore unused make ups can not be used during the summer session.

Students enrolled for the full school year (4 sessions from Sept – June) can earn up to 10 make ups if they complete an absence notification form PRIOR to missing their class. Student who enroll once the school year has started can earn the following based on when they enroll. If you start in session #2 you can earn up to 7 make ups for the remainder of the school year, if starting in session #3 you can earn up to 5 make ups for the remainder of the school year, and if starting in session #4 you can earn up to 3 make ups for the remainder of the school year. Our summer session is sold separately and you can earn up 2 make ups to use during the summer session, when purchasing an 8 week class.
