Learn to Swim

Beginner Group

The Beginner Group is a learn to swim program based on water safety and introduces basic stroke development.  Swimmers as young as 5 years of age may join the group and each class is kept to a maximum student to instructor ratio of 2:1.  Swimmers learn how to be water safe, how to get to the side of the pool on their own as well as learning and becoming more proficient in freestyle and backstroke and learning the basics of breaststroke, butterfly and starts.  No swim diapers are permitted in the pool—swimmer must be “potty-trained”.  All swimmers must be able to understand and follow verbal instructions in English.  This is a noncompetitive swim group, any swimmer who is a member of this group that wishes to compete must have approval from the team's Head Age Group Coach.
