Begin your journey of life-long water exploring and enjoyment! The Jellyfish class is for those new to the water and/or new to swim lessons. Our goal is to get your young child excited and eager to learn to swim. The class uses fun activities and play to help Jellyfish feel comfortable and safe in the water. Teachers introduce the "swimming posture," build the base for future lessons by helping students develop breath-holding capability, learn to float and glide on front and back, and find natural balance in the water. No experience necessary.
Clownfish have fun while becoming independent in the water! Teachers help students refine swimming posture, and add arm and leg propulsion.
Students should be comfortable in the water and enjoy coming to swim lessons

Dogfish learn basic tricks of safety in the water, including "roll over" from front to back, kick on back with face out of the water and use some arm propulsion to safely reach the side of the pool.
Students must be able to glide on front with head in line with spine and kick for 10 yards while performing big, slow arm strokes.
