Aquatics Class descriptions:
Infant Parent Aquatics Program: 12 - 36 months (30 min)
This class helps infants and toddlers become comfortable in and around the water with a parent or guardian. Infants should be able to sit on their own before taking this class. The class is not designed to teach children to become good swimmers or survive in the water on their own. This program gives information and techniques to help orient children to the water and to supervise water activities in a safe manner. Class requires the participation of a parent or adult guardian in the water with the child.
Level 1- Water Exploration (30 min)
This course marks the formal beginning of the Learn to Swim Program. Children will learn to kick on front and back with support. They will also learn to be comfortable putting their face in the water and blowing bubbles. Water safety rules and the proper way to enter and exit the pool will also be taught. Upon completion children should have a basic understanding of the rules of the pool and be able to submerge themselves in the water.
Level 2- Primary Skills (30 min)
Children will learn a supine float unassisted, as well as flutter kick on front and back. The basics of front crawl, back crawl and rhythmic breathing will also be covered. In addition, children will retrieve objects underwater and become oriented to the deep water. This level marks the beginning of true locomotion skills.
Level 3 & 4 - Stroke development / Stroke Improvement
With a freestyle base, learn to maximize efficiency by keeping head still and rotating body. Learn the "frog-kick" and breaststroke swimming, with an introduction to the Butterfly. Students will increase their endurance and improve their skills by swimming front crawl and back crawl for greater distances.
Water Polo for Children
Children can also practice the sport if they cannot keep themselves afloat by themselves by wearing tubes to keep them above the surface of the water. Since water polo is a sport that requires the players to grasp the ball using only one hand, balls in children water polo need to be significantly smaller so that they can grasp it with their smaller hands. The size of the swimming pool does not need to be regulation either, a smaller pool can do just find to get the basic idea of children water polo. There are many benefits to learn water polo at an early age. It is an intense sport that gives a complete full-body workout and will help develop a child's strength and coordination while having fun!
Adult Swim Lesson (30 min) This course is designed to teach adults basic swimming and water safety skills in addition to increasing personal comfort in and around the water. Classes are taught following the American Red Cross guidelines for adult swimming. Skills learned in this level will include floating without support and recover to a vertical position as well as coordinating the front crawl and back crawl. The course will also introduce the fundamentals of treading water.
