The Area's Premier School of Swimming

Goldfish 

Ages: Approximately 2 yrs. - 3 yrs.

Overview: This class is for children that are too young to sit on the steps and take direction, or are too shy to be working directly with an instructor. The goal of this class is for an instructor to begin taking the child from the parent to be worked with independently. The parent remains in the water as the the child  gains confidence while working directly with the instructor. Children 2.5 yrs. old that can work independently with an instructor and will sit on the steps and take direction, should instead register for the Starfish class in the Elementary Program.

Requirements: Parents are required to be in the water. Two diapers must be worn. The first is a disposable swim diaper and covered by a reusable elastic swim pant. Goggles are not needed but if the child will wear them, please bring them. Swim caps should be worn if child has long hair. At a minimum their hair should be tied back.

Skills Taught: Sitting on the steps and following directions, blowing bubbles, getting their face wet, scooping the water with their hands, front and back floats, kicking while floating on their back as well as safety skills such as holding onto the edge and climbing from the pool with no assistance
