- Children learn through fun and by teaching a “safety first” method; learning personal responsibility at an early age. This method is effective for all ages! “Safety first, fun-a close Second and proper stroke technique throughout”
- Swimming regularly year-round is beneficial in many ways. Not only can it “melt” the fat away it can keep illness at bay. Children that swim regularly get sick less often.
- Studies have shown that athletes make the best grades and swimmers make the best grades of the athletes (due to forced organization as they have the least amount of time away from their sport).
- It’s never too early! Babies have a natural ability in water (they just spent 9 months in an aquatic environment). When encouraged, babies will enjoy water and bath time. We have a specially designed deep sink to instruct new parents in how to start training babies as young as two months. We like them to get their “sea legs” before being able to walk. We begin lessons as young as 6 months and will show you what to do with them in the tub before 6 months!
- We believe strongly that children should learn how to keep themselves afloat and how to swim at an early age. Using any type of flotation device can create a dependence on that device that the child doesn’t understand. Check our website for more on this. We don’t use gimmicks!
- Practice and time in the water is necessary for swim students to maintain and increase skill levels. Swim classes are followed by practice time, so that students can continue practicing new skills their own. (With parent or other adult in the water if under 5 years old.)
- Students are encouraged to continue swim lessons and practice then graduate to swim team, lifeguarding and teaching lessons. We offer teaching assistant internships to our long-time students who may be interested in learning how to teach and coach.
