UNIQUE & EFFECTIVE SWIMMING PROGRAM

Initial Program

6 week session Monday through Friday (5 days/week)

  • 10-12 Months
    Infants are taught to roll over from a face down position in to a back float in order to achieve a stable position where they can breathe. They are also able to be passed back and forth helping to establish a head down swimming position.
  • 12 Months and Up
    This age group will be taught a Swim-Float-Swim sequence. They will learn an efficient way to propel themselves from one place to another by being able to swim head down with their eyes open, roll to their backs and breathe, and depending on their confidence and skill level roll back over to continue swimming

3 week session Monday through Friday (2x/day) 

  • If you would like to shorten the length of time to 3 weeks we can still achieve the same results by having 2 classes per day with a minimum of 2 1/2 to 3 hours between classes.
    For example, 9am and 3pm. 30 classes total.

Fun Fridays

  • Fridays, parents are invited into the water to participate in the lesson.
    Bringing the parent(s) in the water gives the child the opportunity to show their parent(s) their newly acquired skills, building their child’s self esteem and confidence. This also, gives us the opportunity to demonstrate the proper ways to reinforce the techniques taught in our program to the parent(s).

Final Test

  • Once the above skills are acquired, all children in our initial program are placed in the water fully clothed.
    They are able to recover from any position placed in the water by rolling over onto their backs and floating for an extended amount of time.
    Children in the 12 months and up group may have the ability to roll back over and obtain the side of pool or steps.

Maintenance Program (4 years  and under)

  • Practice is the key to retaining skills.
    We recommend ongoing classes at least 2 times/week. Classes are 2 or 3  days a week for children 3 years old and under who have completed our Initial Program. These classes reinforce the skills already taught and build on the skills needed to learn strokes.

Advanced Program/Strokes  (4 years and up)

  • Instructor teaches the four major strokes:
    Front Crawl, Backstroke, Breaststroke, Butterfly.
    Classes are 2 - 4 days a week for 20 minutes private sessions.
    The Initial Program must be completed if the child cannot perform the swim-float-swim sequence.

Refresher Course

  • This class focuses on building back their confidence
    For children who have completed our initial program and have been out of the water for an extended amount of time. Children don’t lose their swimming and floating skills, but sometimes lose the confidence to perform them.
    This class focuses on building back their confidence to perform and master skills already taught and get them ready to move on to maintenance or stroke lessons.

Snorkeling (3 and up)

  • Snorkeling is great way for them to have fun while reinforcing the proper swimming position.

Adult Lessons

  • It's never too late to learn!
    These classes are for beginners that need to learn the basics to the more advanced adult that needs to learn better technique.
    Classes are 20 minute private sessions and we recommend at least 2 times a week.



TESTIMONIALS
Thank you for all your patience, love and care in teaching Ella the safety skills she needs for the pool! We are beyond thrilled at how she has learned to float, turn, dive and swim thanks to you. She has gained incredible confidence and has a blast practicing her new skills. We will definitely be back for more!!

17-month old Daniel is the second child we've sent thru the Aquachild program. Despite moving an hour north, we made a special effort to get Daniel thru because our first child had learned so much. Daniel graduated last week, and had learned all the safety skills well. As if to prove the point, he fell headfirst in the pool yesterday as we were moving in to our new house. His mother was nearby, but she paused a couple seconds to see what he would do. Sure enough, he rolled right over and established a good safe float. She fished him out of the water and he was none the worse. This training has given us the confidence to let our kids play near the water without constant "arm's-reach" adult supervision. The results are amazing, and the instructors are superb. Two thumbs up!
