Our unique multi-level instructional approach is unlike
anything offered by other aquatic training programs.
Instructors are thoroughly trained water safety
instructors, so swimmers of all ages and abilities are in
good hands. Participants learn a variety of strokes and
are also introduced to a wide range of personal safety
skills and diving techniques.
Swimmers who demonstrate all required skills
for course completion receive a certificate of
achievement (not a guarantee of enrollment and/or
level placement). Level placement is at the discretion
of staff and students may be required to repeat levels,
even after a completion card has been issued.
In addition to the three levels, Parent N Me teaches
children to explore the water accompanied by a
parent/guardian. Preschool Aquatics promotes the
developmentally appropriate learning of fundamental
water safety and aquatics skills. Parent N Me and
Preschool Aquatics classes are 30 minutes in length.
Level 1-3 classes are 40 minutes in length. All refund
policies apply. FIN Swim is a continuation of our Learnto
Swim program, following the completion of Level 3.
We incorporate our water safety program as part of
our Learn-to-Swim curriculum. Topics include CPR/
rescue breathing demonstrations and safety practices
in, on and around the water.
