How do I know which level is right for me?
For parents and their infants or toddlers. Here you’ll learn to be comfortable in the water and develop essential swimming skills through fun and confidence-building experiences.
For swimmers who want to learn more about personal water safety. Students will learn about water acclimations, movement and stamina. The outcome will be the achievement of basic swimming competency.
For those that have mastered the fundamentals. If this is you, you’ll learn additional water safety skills and build your stroke technique.
