Hammerheads Class

Our Hammerheads class consists of advanced students, ages 4 & Up. Our final class in the Lily Pad Swim School takes endurance, technique, and safety skills to the pre-team level. This unique class introduces swimmers to deep water treading and lifeguard training. The goal is to produce a well-rounded and advanced swimmer who can join a local swim team and enter the workforce with swim related skills, training, and passion. Students must be able to demonstrate adequate endurance, flip turns with freestyle and backstroke, an improved pace with every stroke, and correct technique for every stroke. Understanding this, safety is still taught as instructors challenge students to hold their breath longer, swim further, kick harder, and have fun! Student’s will be swimming full length laps to increase mental/physical strength and endurance. At this age, terminology is expected to be learned and used. Students will be able to swim 300M without stopping, tread water for 2 minutes, dive, learn lifeguarding approaches with rescues, learn lifeguarding entries into the water, and learn how to remove a victim from the water. Students will learn how to set and obtain short and long term goals, patience, perseverance, confidence, and listening skills. Our goal is a safe, fun, nurturing environment where little ones can develop sound, positive feelings about themselves and learning.

We use an incremental progression-based curriculum. This allows our students to be comfortably and safely eased into advanced swimming strokes, techniques, and terminology through skills. Skills are activities designed to help students gradually become more comfortable in the water while learning how to swim at a higher level.

Tadpoles Class

2-3 Years


Our Tadpoles swim class consists of our youngest independent swimmers. Much like our parent-child classes, Tadpoles immediately get to work on learning very important water safety and survival skills.


Bubblefish Class

3 Years


Bubblefish immediately get to work on learning very important water safety and survival skills. Students will immediately be introduced to (or continue developing) their back float, swim-to-wall, monkey crawls, and practice independently climbing out of the pool.


Goldfish Class

4-5 Years


The Goldfish class is where you’ll find our 4-5 year old beginners. Similar to all our classes, watery safety and survival skills are immediately and continuously taught. This level works to develop a foundation for independent freestyle swimming. Each class works on arm and kick development in preparation for future stroke and breathing techniques.
