Parent & Child Classes

At the beginning of this class, your child does not have to have any experience in the water. This is an introductory class where you will accompany your child in the water along with the teacher and work to get your child used to the water and working with a teacher. This class will have an outline of skills to practice and will be include fun activities to give the class a comfortable and enjoyable structure.

At the conclusion of this class your child will be ready to work separate from their parents with an instructor. They will be comfortable in the water with full adult supervision, and will be ready to learn how to perform the same skills unassisted. Recommended for ages 3 and under.

SWIM DIAPERS: We require all children that are not potty trained to wear reusable swim diapers. We recommend putting them in a disposable swim diaper underneath the reusable for extra protection. Due to state regulations, accidents often require us to close the pool which is an inconvenience to both parents, swimmers, MAC and the facility.

CLASS LENGTH: 30 Minutes; COST: $90 per month
