Offering Private One-on-One Swim Lessons - Starting Again Spring 2019
--- Longwood Aquatics is an Authorized Licensed Training Provider and follows the curriculum of the America Red Cross® (ARC). The Red Cross is America's oldest, most experienced and most respected service provider for swim lessons. All of our lesson instructors are certified Red Cross Instructors and have years of experience in teaching children of all ages and abilities. We specialize and only offer private one-on-one lessons for all ages. However, in the case where there are 2 siblings near the same age and ability, we will provide parents an option to have both children swim together with the same instructor.
Our Lesson Types:
Preschool 3-5 years old
These American Red Cross classes are designed for children as lessons without their parents. Your child will be oriented to the aquatic environment and will gain basic aquatic locomotion skills. On the first day of class, our trained instructors will determine the appropriate Red Cross Preschool Level for your child based on your child's skills and begin to form a lesson plan. At the end of your first day, your child's instructor will inform you of the class objectives so you can assist your child between lessons. Ages: 3-5, Lessons average 30 minutes.
Youth Beginner 5+ years old
These lessons help participants feel comfortable in the water and learn basic safety skills. Your child will learn to float without support and will begin to learn good swimming habits and aquatic locomotion skills, including crawl stroke and elementary backstroke. On the first day of class, our trained instructors will determine the appropriate Red Cross Level for your child and begin to form the lesson plan for the session. At the end of the first day, your child's instructor will inform you of the class objectives so you can encourage and work with your child between lessons. Ages: 5+, Lessons average 30-40 minutes depending upon level of concentration and ability.
Youth Stroke Development
These lessons build on the skills learned during the American Red Cross Beginner classes. Your child will progress in the knowledge of water safety and improve their crawl stroke and elementary backstroke. They will then progress to backstroke, sidestroke, breaststroke, and butterfly according to American Red Cross curriculum outlines. On the first day of class, our instructors will determine the appropriate Red Cross Level for your child and form a lesson plan to incorporate drills and training for proper stroke development. At the end of the first day, your child's instructor will inform you of the class objectives so you can encourage and work with your child between lessons. Ages: 5+, Lessons average 30-45 minutes based upon ability.
