AGES 2 - 6

SPA SWIM SCHOOL is a SwimAmerica program that strives to provide affordable swim lessons that go beyond just teaching basic water safety.  We also aim to help your child become a competent swimmer who can participate in a broad range of water activities.  Our approach focuses on children developing swimming skills and gaining confidence in their abilities in a safe and FUN environment.  One thing that sets us apart from other swim lesson programs is that, in addition to teaching water safety and water survival skills, our curriculum includes teaching the skills necessary for participation on swim team.

LEVELS

Beginner 

The beginner classes focus on getting each child comfortable in and around the water and swimming pool environment.  Our goals include having your swimmer float, put their face in the water, kick, get themselves to the wall by gliding on their front and back, begin to use arms and side breathing for freestyle and introduce backstroke.

Intermediate 

The intermediate level continues to focus on the basics taught in the beginner class and adds a greater emphasis on swimming to the wall using arms and legs.  The instructor continues to teach proper swimming techniques for freestyle (also known as front crawl) and backstroke.Participants are encouraged to swim farther, as much as halfway down the pool and kickboards are introduced.  There is also the introduction of different floating/gliding positions to gain body awareness in the water.

Advanced 

Our advanced classes work on building up your swimmer's strength and endurance and are now swimming the full 25 yards without stopping.  The instructor continues to introduce new techniques for freestyle (front crawl) and also continues working on the basics for swimming backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly.  Circle swimming and diving off the blocks is introduced

Pre-Swim Team

Pre-Swim Team is the final step before moving on to the St. Petersburg Aquatics Junior Team level or Summer Swim League Program.  The emphasis is on perfecting strokes and increasing the endurance needed to participate on swim team.
