CLASSES WILL 
BEGIN ONCE POOLS REOPEN!!!!!
Swimming 101
What is a good age for kids to begin swimming lessons?
6 months old is often a good age to begin teaching kids how
to swim. As we continue to work with babies, we see them
learning water-safe skills and they are very well prepared for
classes without a parent by the time they are 3.
Do you offer swimming lessons for infants and babies?
Yes! We offer infant and toddler classes. The classes are held
with a parent/guardian in the water in a class – supervised
by an instructor. Days and times vary based on demand and
ability level requests.
Can parents stay and watch kid’s swimming lessons?
Absolutely! Parents are welcome to be in the pool area to
watch. You are then handy to:
Assist your swimmer if they need to go to the restroom or if
they would have an accident.
• Be extra eyes watching the water.
Applaud new skills achieved. Your applause means so much
to them.
However, it is never appropriate for a parent to become overly
involved in the lesson or to try to instruct. That’s what you’ve
hired us for, after all! We know that having you close by gives
your children a sense of security. Sometimes for the very
young, timid swimmer we will have the parent come and sit
by the edge of the pool with the child near them. The child can
watch the teacher interact with the other students and see that
this is a safe place. They will quickly join in. Occasionally we
will ask a parent to leave the room if the child refuses to coop-
erate. This is usually due to a strong will and only done when
nothing else works. 99% of the time, the child will cooperate
when they realize that they cannot control the situation! The
parent then comes back into the swim area and the child has
fun with their class!
How long will it take for my child to learn how to swim?
Every swimmer learns at a different rate. It will depend on:
• The level of fear
• The ability to trust the instructor
• The child’s individual personality. Some people have a
cautious personality and others jump into everything without a
thought!
• The amount of time the family goes swimming together.
• The way the body and coordination have matured. Some
can just get it and others need to practice over and over and
over again.
Our advice is to be patient with your swimmer and offer lots of
praise and encouragement.
When is my swimmer considered to be water safe?
Parents are often satised once their swimmer can jump off of
a diving board and get to the ladder. People need more devel-
oped skills than that, however. There are so many dangerous
water scenarios and a person needs to be able to swim using
their head while conserving energy. This only comes as they
are able to swim with good, controlled technique. The tech-
nique and endurance built through a good swimming instruc-
tion program will accomplish this.
How do I know what level to sign up for?
Each level will have a description. You nd the one that best
ts what your swimmer is able to do. And if you have ques-
tions, just ask us – we’ll be glad to help you assess where
your child is at. Additionally, if your child has taken swimming
lessons somewhere else, let us know what levels they have
achieved.
What level do I sign up for if I am registering for multiple
sessions?
This can be tricky… Some of it depends on the personality
of the swimmer, the number of times per week that you are
bringing them to lessons, and the age and physical matu-
ration of the swimmer. Don’t worry though – we can always
make adjustments if your swimmer does not progress as you
guessed. We will never hold a swimmer back from learning
new skills. Sometimes we can adequately challenge them
right in the level in which they are placed.
What is your swimming lesson make-up policy?
Make-up lessons will not be allowed unless classes are
cancelled due to pool breakdown or weather cancellation. We
will try to accommodate make-ups for illness as the schedule
allows.
What if I have concerns about the way the lessons are going?
We understand that you’re extremely interested in your child’s
success with swimming lessons. We are too! Should you ever
have concerns, please address those concerns with us imme-
diately. We can help! In general, this can help, too:
FIRST: Give us 2 lessons to fall into a routine and get the
group used to working together. During this time we will eval-
uate each swimmer making sure that they are in the correct
placement. Sometimes we will need to move a student. Most
times we will be able to accommodate the needs of each
swimmer even though they may be in slightly different levels.
SECOND: Communicate directly with your swimmer’s
instructor. Address them as you would want to be addressed.
The Sandwich Theory: Say something positive. Voice the
concern. Say something positive.
THIRD: If you are not satised with the results, speak with
the lesson supervisor. They may be able to offer support that
will help your swimmer.
What kinds of supplies or equipment are used in swim
lessons? What is required?
Of course, you’ll want to be sure your swimmer has a well-t-
ted swimsuit and a towel, along with anything you typically
bring along for swimming. Here are some specic notes on
other items:
Goggles: We use goggles for several reasons. Swimmers
are able to open their eyes and see. They are not learning
“blind”. They are able to focus on the skills and not have water
dripping in their eyes.
Ear Plugs: If you don’t have an ear mold, a putty plug is
available at a pharmacy. To help them stay in, you can pur-
chase a headband or a swim cap at a swim shop or sporting
goods store. Some swimmers are just sensitive to water going
in the ears, especially during skills done on the back. Ear plugs
will often help with that.
Swim Shirts: (Often called rash guards) I recommend these
if your swimmer is easily chilled. Parents have found them at
sporting goods stores, and online at www.swimoutlet.com.
Nose Plugs: We prefer to teach swimmer how to keep the
water out of their nose without the use of these. With a few
tips, it is easy to do. In some instances swimmers will wear
nose plugs.
Youth Athletics
Registration is open without penalty until the deadline noted for each specic sport / program.
Beginning the day after the deadline, late registrations will be taken IF SPOTS ARE AVAILABLE.
A $10 fee increase will be assessed for each late registration. A wait list will be started once the
league / program is full and / or teams are formed. Programs may meet their maximums before
the registration deadline. **Subject to change based on registration numbers and season start
dates.**
