Class Descriptions:

Parent/Tot Classes (ages 6 months - 3 years)

Shrimp Dip: We are children ages 6 months to 3 years of age wanting to have fun, exercise, and learn water adjustment. We are with our parent and enjoying that bonding experience. We will have a positive learning experience while being introduced to basic aquatics safety.

Preschool Classes (ages 3 - 5)

Children are encouraged to progress at their own pace. ***Parents are asked to please not get in the water for preschool classes.***

Pre-Tadpoles: I am a true beginner for my age group ages 2 to 3. I will learn water adjustment, blow bubbles, experience floating, and getting my face wet and learn to interact with others in my age group. Maximum of 4 students.

Tadpole: I am a beginner as well but my age group is between 3 to 5 years old. I will also learn water adjustment, blow bubbles, experience floating, and get my face wet. In addition, I will learn to interact with others. Maximum of 4 students.

Pike: I am a swimmer comfortable with getting my face wet and floating with assistance. I am ready to swim a little on my own with or without assistance.
Maximum of 4 students.
