Swimming Instruction

The Lily Pad Swim School was created and launched under the roof of Gym Magic Kids in 2004. We adopted a proven curriculum that has taught hundreds of thousands of children throughout the nation. Our program divides children by age and then skill. Our 5 skill levels (Parent-child, Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced Intermediate & Advanced) are designed to build confidence in the water, teach safety skills, and teach progression swim skills. Our parent-child and beginner classes are for children with little or no swim skills. Classes will focus on building comfort in the water as well as teach basic, beginning swim skills. Our intermediate to advanced classes work on compnents of the four competitive swim strokes. At the end of the program, students should be able to perform all 4 swim strokes with technical refinement as well as understanding safety and survival techniques. Our goal is to provide a safe, fun, and structured opportunity for children to learn the life-saving skill of swim.
