These classes are 2 week blocks, for 5 days a week, of 15 minute one-on-one instruction for swimmers 16 months to 3 years of age. 
  • Infants and preschoolers will learn appropriate swimming postures to allow them to swim face down in the water, rotate onto their back to a floating position that enables them to rest and breathe, then return to a face down swimming posture. This sequence of swim-float-swim can be continued into the learn to swim program. This important skill will prepare your child should he/she accidentally fall into the water. 
  • Classes begin late April and early May, and are run Monday- Friday between 8:00am-10:00 am on 20 minute intervals.
  • The cost of one 2 week session is $250.00. To join our interest list and to start enrollment email [email protected] 
Swim America requires all children under the age of 3 ½ years to follow the diaper policy. For ages 16 months to 3 years children MUST wear a “double diaper,” a disposable swim diaper AND a reusable swim diaper. For ages 3 to 3 ½ years, children may wear the approved reusable swim diaper without the disposable. 
What is a Swim Diaper? 
Disposable Swim Diaper - A light padded pull up diaper made specifically for swimming. Common name brands are Little Swimmers and Splashers. These diapers are for one time use and can be purchased in the diaper aisle of many brand convenient stores. 
Reusable Swim Diaper - A machine washable, elastic waist cloth diaper. A Swim America approved reusable swim diaper must have elastic banded leg holes and elastic waist. The diaper MUST be fitted flush to the skin of the child to avoid the risk of water contamination.  
Double Diaper - Use of both a disposable SWIM diaper and a reusable SWIM diaper. The disposable Swim diaper goes on the child first. The reusable Swim diaper goes on completely over the other. Tuck the disposable edges into the reusable diaper with the elastic waist and leg fitted to the skin. This will avoid contamination up through the back or leg openings of the disposable SWIM diaper. 
Why does Swim America strictly enforce the Double Diaper Policy? 
If a fecal accident occurs in the pool, SLAC  MUST immediately evacuate the pool and cancel classes until the pool is properly sanitized and safe from contamination. This may take 1 hour to 24 hours depending on the severity per the Department of Health. The double diaper gives the most protection against accidents in the pool. 
What if my child is potty trained? Most accidents happen from students 3 to 3 ½ years. Only the reusable diaper is required at this age. Our priority is the health and safety of all students.
