This class will help your child learn to swim at an early age (ages 4 & 5). Participants learn about water safety and basic skills to get them swimming independently. Your child has the opportunity to advance through three swim levels developed for their age group by the American Red Cross.
Swimmers will learn to not be afraid to put their head underwater, have forward motion when swimming on their front, and be comfortable swimming on their back independently. They will also learn how to do the front crawl, go underwater for objects, swim back crawl, float and glide.
Participants must bring their own towel, bathing suit and a change of dry clothes. We would also encourage everyone to wear water shoes, flip flops or sandals to prevent slipping in the locker rooms or on the pool deck.
