Our Seahorse class is for beginner 6 & Up students with little to no experience. Our progression based curriculum introduces students to swimming with little incremental challenges in the form of skills. Skills are activities designed to help students gradually become more comfortable in the water while learning how to swim at a higher level. This level works to develop a foundation for independent freestyle swimming with an introduction to backstroke.
Seahorse students immediately get to work on learning very important water safety and survival skills.The difference in this beginner class is the age and ability for students to listen and take on additional challenges. Students practice the same tried-and-true water safety and survival methods (back float, swim-to-wall, monkey crawls, etc). Understanding this, safety is still taught as instructors challenge students to hold their breath longer, swim further, kick harder, and have fun! Each class works on arm and kick development in preparation for future stroke and breathing techniques. Students are introduced to the sitting dive, submersions, and front float. At this age, terminology is expected to be learned and used. Students will learn how to set and obtain short and long term goals, patience, perseverance, confidence, and listening skills. As comfort levels rise, students experience the challenge and excitement of submerging underwater like a Seahorse; challenging themselves to hold their breath, retrieve underwater rings, and resurface to a supportive instructor and classmates. Our goal is a safe, fun, nurturing environment where little ones can develop sound, positive feelings about themselves and learning.

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 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.
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.
