FLOW Aquatics offers unique swimming opportunities which are based on one key element – enhancing relaxation and comfort in the water. Our primary goal is safety. While we teach students how to be safe around the water, we also focus on teaching them to calm their bodies and minds by using breath control and floating to feel weightless in the water. Once this trust and comfort level in the water has been attained, we then introduce them to underwater propulsion. Over the water arm strokes are only introduced after the proper breathing, balance and body alignment have been attainted. “It’s not important how fast or how far an individual can swim, but the duration an individual can stay in water safely.”
We offer the following individual programs:
Baby – focus is on developing in very young children (6 months to 36 months) a high comfort level in the water—while at the same time educating parents about water safety and drowning prevention.
Swim School – focus is on developing confidence and efficiency in the water by taking the children from holding their breath and submerging on their own to swimming a simplified form of freestyle and backstroke.
Stroke School – focus is on further developing and refining freestyle and backstroke, as well as learning stroke technique for butterfly, breaststroke, starts and turns and keeping this technique over longer distances.
Swim Team – focus is to increase fitness and endurance levels while still maintaining stroke technique. Designed to be a “pre-team” class.
