Pueblo Swim Club Swim Lessons:
How do I know if my child needs swim lessons?
School age children need swim lessons to learn to swim on top of the water. Underwater swimming cannot save their lives! Children tire quickly underwater and trying to sustain underwater swimming may even cause a drowning! Learning a good freestyle stroke with proper air exchange will help your child build confidence in the water and may save his or her life. In addition to safety, swimming skills allow children to enjoy the variety of activities in and around water.
How long will it take to learn to swim?
This depends on your child’s age and level of fitness. It takes more lessons for preschoolers to learn the basic skills of floating, kicking, returning to the wall and rolling over on their back to breathe, float and rest. Older children learn more quickly and most learn to swim two or more strokes in 20 or so lessons.
At what age can my child begin taking swim lessons with the Pueblo Swim Club? The Pueblo Swim Club works children starting at the age of 3.
Pueblo Swim Club Swim Lessons Provide:
- An instructor to student ratio of 1 to 5 or better.
- Trained instructors who are attentive, caring, and understand children.
- Emphasis on excellent swimming techniques including body position and breathing skills.
- On Deck supervision by experienced swim lesson instructor.
