The FLOW Aquatics Swim School program will develop a high comfort level in the water and a readiness to swim for those who are developmentally ready. It takes the children from holding their breath and submerging on their own to swimming a simplified form of freestyle and backstroke. This course approaches teaching swimming through creative, fun activities in the water. Students work toward developing the five core competencies and receive ribbons for completing lead up and benchmark safety and water skills at each stage. Children progress at their own pace in a small-group setting.
Ages: 3 – 12 years
Although all children in the Swim School Program are required to perform all the same skills, for developmental reasons we divide them into groups depending on age.
Class Size: Semi-Private (2 children:1 instructor ratio)
Class Length: 15 mins
Price: $69 per month
