Preschool: for children 3-5 years
In our basic aquatic progressions we work to ensure 3 to 5-year olds become comfortable in the water and have fun acquiring and developing a foundation of water skills.
Preschool levels 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Swimmer: for children 5 years and older
This 6-level Swimmer program makes sure your children learn how to swim before they get in too deep. Swimmer progressions accommodate children 5 years and older including absolute beginners as well as swimmers who want to build on the basics. We encourage lots of in-water practice to develop solid swimming strokes and skills
