 Level 1A and 1B: Introduction to Water Skills

Ratio: 1 aide per 1 child plus a class instructor

We understand that children in level one need extra attention.  These skills are the ones that all the levels skills will build off of. Also, many level one children still aren't comfortable with the water.  It is because of this that each child gets his/her own swimming aide, so it's as good as having a private lesson.  On top of this, a class instructor assists the aides and gives the children even more attention.

 

To better suit the varying skills of our youngest patrons, we offer both Levels 1A and 1B:

bullet1A: For children not comfortable with the water
bullet1B: For children already comfortable with the water
