Welcome to the Kraken Swimming Swim School! We've completely revamped our program to provide a more complete and consistent experience for our students. Our Swim School offers several levels of group lessons and private lessons. Descriptions of all our groups can be found below.

Group Lessons

Parent/Child Lessons

Parent/Child lessons are designed to introduce infants and toddlers to the pool and to be comfortable in the water. Research shows that children frequently exposed to water for the first few years of life are more likely to learn to swim and be comfortable in the water as they get older.

These lessons are guided by an instructor to help parents introduce their child(ren) to the water and to teach the parents how to handle their child(ren) while in a pool environment. Parents are required to be in the water with their child(ren).

Classes are Saturdays 11:00 am - 11:45 am and are grouped into 8 week sessions.

Cost is $50 per child per session and will be charged at the time of registrations.

Multi Child Discounts:

  • 2 Children: 10% off
  • 3 Children: 15% off
  • 4-5 Children: 20% off

For ages 6mo - 42mo.

 

Beginner Lessons

Beginner lessons are a child's first step to learning to be safe in and around the water and becoming a strong, independent swimmer. At the end of these lessons, children will have the knowledge and ability to safely jump into and exit the pool without direct assistance. Participants must be able to sit on the side of the pool without their parents being on the pool deck and be able to follow instructions.

These lessons will teach the following skills:

  • Properly enter and exit a pool using the ladders and steps
  • Blow bubbles
  • Submerge under the water
  • Back float
  • Front float
  • Treading water
  • Return to the side after jumping in

Classes are run in 8 week sessions and are held on Mondays and Wednesdays 6:30-7:00 pm.

Progress cards will be sent home after 4 weeks and at the end of the session. The students will also receive Achievement Bands for learning certain skills.

At the end of the session, the students will take an exit test to determine if they have learned the necessary skills to move up to our Advanced Lessons. If they do not pass the test, you can re-register for Beginner Lessons.

Cost is $100 per child per session and will be charged at the time of registrations.

Multi Child Discounts:

  • 2 Children: 10% off
  • 3 Children: 15% off

Wristbands:

To help the kids track their progress and motivate them to continue learning, wristbands will be handed out to the students for learning and completing various skills, similar to the belt system in martial arts. Each skill under each band must be learned and completed before the band will be awarded.

The bands for Beginner Lessons are as follows:
