Beginner Group Lessons (30 min): Do you have a child who needs to learn water safety? If so, this is the class for them! In this group we work on the basics: floating, forward crawl, backwards crawl and s submersion. Once a swimmer has learned all of these skills they are more than welcome to join the Development/skills lessons.
Development/Skills Lessons (1 hour): Once a swimmer can float and is water safe, they can hop right into the development and skills group to learn how to swim all four strokes! These lessons focus on proper form while learning how to do swim sets. This group utilizes equipment such as fins, snorkels, kick boards, and push/pull buoys (provided by coach Sam)
Competition Lessons (2 hours): This lesson is geared towards the swimmer that can confidently do three of the four strokes and is looking to stay in shape for competition or is thinking about competing this winter. This group works on building up stamina and strength with the use of the pool and the gym. Athletes in this group may travel to meets and clinics. These athletes will also be utilizing equipment such as paddles, snorkels, fins, kick-boards, and push/pull buoys.
Privates (30 min): Privates are offered for all ages and are available daily between 12:00 and 3:00 PM. Sam would love to help any swimmer who would like to sharpen up their skills! Please contact Sam at least 2 days in advance of your desired private lesson.
*All athletes who would like to practice in the Competition or Development/Skills groups need to be water safe (can float on their own and can move forward on their own in the water).
