The purposes of parent/child classes are to teach safe behavior in and around the water and develop swimmer readiness for future swim lessons. Classes run in a group setting focusing not only on comfort but creating a fun atmosphere where young swimmers learn and grow while having a great time. Water Babies through Water Sprites require a parent’s involvement in the water. Children must wear a swim diaper not disposables.


Water Babies: 6-24 months (30-min) Using songs, games, and play, children learn water-based motor skills such as kicking, arm movements, floating, and blowing bubbles. All designed to make babies more comfortable in the water.

Water Tots: 25-35 months (30-min) Swim skills, such as breath control, proper kicking and arm movement, jumping into and climbing out of the pool are taught through the use of songs and games. At this age, repetition is key in learning, focusing on a few skills per class, and repeating them in a fun way, is the best way for tots to learn.

Advanced Water Tots: 25-35 months (30-min) For toddlers, who are comfortable in the water, this parent/child class begins to help children with unassisted swimming. Essential skills such as kicking, arm movement, breath control, floating on both stomach and back are taught. Swimmers must be comfortable with putting their face in the water to be in this class.
