Lesson Overview:

  • The lessons are 30 minutes long to allow ample time for children to grasp, learn, and practice the swim skills. Most swim schools in the area limit their teaching to 20 minutes a lesson and our company feels this does not allow the child to learn at their highest potential. Also the longer lesson allows the child to build a more profound trust with the instructor positively affecting the rest of the class.
  • Our lesson plan allows us to work with children at their personal swim level and experience. By limiting our classes to private (one on one) it increases the productivity of each lesson.
  • Our teaching style is designed to cater to the child’s physical abilities and mental readiness as it pertains to their age.
  • Through each lesson the student will touch base on roughly 3 Levels. Start with what they are completely comfortable with, then teach them something new, followed by putting everything together.
  • For example if the student is comfortable with back floating and kicking; uneasy about putting eyes in. They would start with kicking on a kick board, progress to blowing bubbles and kicking on the board, then eyes in kicking on the board. Continue to then add bubbles prior to rolling on back to float. By the end of the lesson the student will be ready to put it all together. Eyes down kick with bubbles and roll to back float to breath.
