Parent-CHILD CLASSES

 

 

 

Aqua Babies (5 - 18 months) 

 

· 9:00 am—9:30 am Course Code: AB9

 

Join us for fun activities that teach infants to feel comfortable in the water.  Parents will learn to hold and support infants properly as their child explores breath control, floating, and changing body position while "moving" through the water.

 

Tots 1 (18 - 30 months) 

 

· 9:30 am—10:00 am Course Code: T1: CLOSED AS OF 9/21/17 



Great experiences and exciting activities encourage young swimmers to feel safe in the water. Techniques using parental assistance teach children water safety, safe entry, kicking, and arm movements.  Swimmers build on breath control, floating, and changing body position while "moving" through the water. Parents join children in the water for this class.



Tots 2 (2.5 - 4 years) 

 

· 10:00am-10:30am Course Code: Tots2A CLOSED AS OF 9/20/17

The Tots 2 classes are designed for children with no prior swim experience, as well as for those that are not comfortable being on their own in the water.  Each class is filled with engaging, challenging games and activities that will motivate your child to swim.
