INFANT, TODDLER AND PRESCHOOL SWIM WITH PARENT
Ages: 6 months - 5 years
Through skill specific games and water play, children learn water safety, find a love for the water and progress through innovative skills and fun drills, one-on-one with a parent. Kicking, floating, swimming without flotation and submerging will be explored. Build a foundation for future swimming success while sharing with your child the importance of playing and swimming safely in, and around water.
PRESCHOOL SHARKS SWIM ACADEMY
Ages: 3 years - 5 years
Fun with a splash of confidence. Preschoolers are introduced to the water and total submersion, then progress to kicking and pulling independently with flotation. Once comfortable, basic strokes, deep water skills and diving are encouraged while on the way to swimming flotation free! These classes are for all levels of children ranging from children who are entering the water the first time and may be apprehensive to those who already have a love for water and need to hone their skills.
YOUTH SHARKS SWIM ACADEMY
Ages: 6 years and up
Float, pull and kick your way to swimming 25 yards. Increase stamina and personal water safety as you tackle the challenge of the Front Crawl, Backstroke, Sidestroke, Elementary Backstroke, Breaststroke and Butterfly.
