Pre-Beginner Level 1 Class (PB1)

This class is designed for beginner level swimmers who have limited experience with swimming. Swimmers are usually aged between 3 and 4 years old, and are comfortable in shallow water. The class will teach the new swimmers how to blow bubbles, float on their fronts and backs, submerge their whole body underwater, and the basics of elementary freestyle. Classes are 30 minutes.

Please note: This is not a “water-babies” class; parents may not be in the water with the swimmers while the lesson is in progress. Parents are encouraged to watch, but from outside the fenced area of the junior pool where the instructors’ ability to teach is not compromised.

*Minimum registration of 3 swimmers, or class will be combined with 9:30 am class if class size allows.

Pre-Beginner Level 2 Class (PB2)

This class is designed for swimmers who have a moderate level of swimming experience. Swimmers are usually aged 4-7 years old, and can already blow bubbles, float, and submerge their head under water. The class will teach the swimmers freestyle and backstroke, and how to obtain objects off the bottom of the pool. The class will also introduce the swimmers to deeper water during the second week of the class. Classes are 30 minutes.

Please note: This is not a “water-babies” class; parents may not be in the water with the swimmers while the lesson is in progress. Parents are encouraged to watch, but from outside the fenced area of the junior pool where the instructors’ ability to teach is not compromised.
