UNIQUE & EFFECTIVE SWIMMING PROGRAM


Baby Water Adjustment Class 
private one-on-one, recommended once a week

  • 6-12 Months 
  • We have an exciting program for children 6-12 months old to prepare them for our initial program. 15 minute private class once a week to acclimate your child to back floating and breath control with the parent. In this class you will learn various techniques to help your child become more comfortable in the water. This will make an easy transition to our initial program where your child will learn to achieve these skills independently. The emphasis is having fun while actually learning.

Initial Program

6 week session Monday through Friday

  • 10-11 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

  • 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.

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 (3 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 and up)

  • Instructor teaches the four major strokes:
    Front Crawl, Backstroke, Breaststroke, Butterfly.
    Classes are 2 or 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
    This class is 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 to 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
My 18 month old daughter Gianna just graduated the initial program 2 weeks ago. And I can't thank Brain enough for teaching her skills that she will forever cherish as she splash around in the pool. My experience at aquachild has been amazing and unforgettable. I remember feeling so nervous for her on her first day of class, but amazingly by the fourth day she was already swimming with eyes open under water. After 6 weeks of hard work and dedication she was tossed in the pool fully clothed and like a mermaid she rolled on her back and floated. The job that Brian and his team do with so much patience and passion is just spectacular and admiring. So blessed to have found such an awesome swim school. Can't wait to start with the maintenance program!

We enrolled our first daughter with Aqua Child when she was only 7 months old and we were amazed how quick Scotty & his team taught her how to float and roll over for her own safety. Now seven years later she is an amazing swimmer who loves the water. At the same time we have enrolled our second daughter who is 14 months old and within 2 weeks, she's swimming under water & floating on her own with confidence & enjoyment. Is not only a fun factor but a safety factor that all parents near water should invest in. This will be a life long education they will carry with them for the rest of their life's.
Aqua Child is the best out of all the rest. We definitely recommend them to all my friends, family & patients.
