Baby Swim is a gift to your child which will last a lifetime. This first introduction to the water is focused on relaxation, comfort, and enjoyment for baby and parent alike. With guided instruction from our expert teachers, a foundation is created from which survival skills, stroke work, and lifelong swimming naturally follows.
Baby Swim I swimmers learn breath control, comfort putting their ears in the water, swimming above and below the water surface, and the basics of a survival jump.
Baby Swim II is a continuation of the Baby Swim I fundamentals with a greater emphasis on underwater swimming, survival skills, and increased independence.
Baby Swim II swimmers learn to place their head underwater and pick up rings, independently swim to their parent partner, float and glide on their backs and tummies with assistance, and jump in and return to the wall on their own.
In Baby Swim III, the focus shifts from assisted swimming skills to independent swimming. Although utilizing the same skill set as our Starfish level, parents are encouraged to continue to swim with their babies until they turn 3 years old to playfully enjoy the water together and to reinforce the importance of an adult around water.
Baby Swim III students learn to back float independently, roll to their backs to breathe, swim to the wall and exit the pool, independently swim 10-15 feet, and retrieve rings from the pool bottom.
