Swim Lessons - SCHOOL AGE for Youth (ages 6-12)

For Ages 6 to 12

There are two categories for children ages 6 to 12, Swim Basics and Swim Strokes.

Swim Basics (Stage 1, 2 and 3) develops personal water safety and basic swimming skills in students of all ages.  Swimmers develop a high level of comfort in the water by practicing safe water habits, engaging in underwater exploration, and learning how to swim to safety and exit if they fall into a body of water. Children that are in Kindergarten may enroll in the youth Swim Basics instead of the preschool classes.

Swim Strokes (Stage 4, 5, 6) introduces and refines the stroke technique.  Having mastered the fundamentals, students learn additional water safety skills and build stroke techniques, developing skills that prevent chronic disease, increase social-emotional and cognitive well-being and foster a lifetime of physical activity.

Location:  Large Pool 

Our Aquatics staff members are available to answer any questions about the swim program and to help place your child at the appropriate swim level.
