Lawrence Aquahawks Lessons

Registration for the 2019 Summer Swim Academy coming soon!!

Welcome to Lawrence Aquahawks Swim Academy!

The Lawrence Aquahawks Swim Academy is a summer long lesson program that teaches young children how to keep safe when they are around water.  Our program is designed with young children in mind and our first priority with any young person, when they are around water, is to make sure they are safe.  We teach kids the basics of swimming, including breathing, floating, kicking, and front crawl.  Once they have mastered the basics they will have the option to continue their lessons to learn how to dive, how to swim backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, and other skills that will help them if they decide competitive swimming is a sport they want to try. 

Group Swim Lessons

The Lawrence Aquahawks Swim Academy offers swim lessons at two locations for your convenience!

Lawrence Country Club (400 Country Club Terrace) & The Jayhawk Club (1809 Birdie Way).

 

Our Swim Academy offers a wide variety of swim lessons for swimmers of all ages. Our instructors are highly qualified and trained by our own staff using our teaching philosophy and lesson curriculum. At the Lawrence Aquahawk Swim Academy, your child comes first! There are 5 different levels to help place your child in the proper class depending on their swim ability and age. Lessons start at $45 per week session. Each session runs Monday-Thursday, with Fridays designated as a Makeup day. Lessons are in 30 minute increments.

The summer team teaches the basics of competitive swimming and having fun. We encourage swimmers to know the basics of all four strokes and can complete at least 1 lap of two of the strokes. Our summer swim team is open to swimmers of all ages and is a great first step for any family and young person that wants to try swimming. It is a flat fee of $150 and will run Monday-Thursday from 10:00-11:00a at The Indoor Aquatic Center.

The Explorer Group

The Explorer Group is for young swimmers (Age 4-8) that have little experience in the water. While there are no set requirements for registration with the Explorer Group, we do recommend that swimmers have completed Level 3 of our Group Swim Lessons Program or an equivalent with another swim program, as well as general comfort in the water. We want to ensure these practices are productive for all involved, and part of that is a swimmer being comfortable in the water.

Swimmers in this group will be introduced to all four strokes in a small group setting. Swimmers will learn skills that range from how to kick and breathe properly, all the way through full stroke swimming. Instruction takes places in small groups with instructors in the water at all times. There are two primary focus points for this group, teaching basic skills that swimmers will need as they progress through the program, and enrich the swimmers love for the water.

 

Explorer sessions will be offered in 2-month blocks:

Fall Session: September & October

Winter Session 1*: November & December  

     *6 Week Session due to Holidays ($75/month)

Winter Session 2: January & February

Spring Session: April & May

Summer Session: June & July

Explorer is not offered during March or August due to team breaks.

 

Located at the Indoor Aquatic Center, you'll have the option of attending practices on either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday from 7:00-7:30pm. One Session lasts 8 weeks. The cost of the first month is $120 and each subsequent month costs $100. This will be charged to your team account on the 1st of each month for the session you select. The first month cost includes the team dues and an annual USA Swimming FLEX Membership registration fee ($20). Swimmers moving to the Bronze group will be charged the difference for a Full Membership ($75) at the time of promotion. All swimmers will need to participate is a swim suit and goggles.
