Frequent questions and Answers:
Q: How many lessons will it take for my child to swim?
A: This depends on many factors; age attention span, learning skills, and a child's comfort level of working with others and in a group. It can sometimes take an older child only 1 session where a younger child may take 20-30 lessons to really pick up true swimming skills.
Q: Will these lessons prevent my child from drowning?
A: Nothing will replace supervising a child. Lessons give them the skills of safety in and out of the water.
Q: What can i expect my child to learn from these lessons?
A: This depends on the level your child is placed in, please click on the swim lesson tab and learn to swim groups tab. We describe each level and what skills will be taught to advance to the next level.
Q: Does a child ever do a level more than once or do they move each time?
A: Some children will repeat a level one or more times depending on their ability, maturity and learning skills. How a child's body is growing and their sense of balance will have a lot to do with them progressing through level 3 and 4.
Q: What can I do to help them progress?
A: Instructors will many times give the students things to work on out of the water, ask your student what the instructor has told them to work on. Ask the instructor what "homework" your student can do. You can also help by making sure that you have proper goggles (if your swimmer will wear them). This can make a huge difference in the water creating comfort and less distraction.
