Parent Tot Swim Lessons


The foundation of Parent-Tot is for participants to gain a set of basic skills that help prepare infants and young children to become comfortable in the water so they are willing and ready to learn to swim. This class also provides parents with information and techniques to create safer aquatic experiences for their children. A swim diaper must be worn. The group class is a one week, 4-day, 30-minute lesson. Ages 6 months to 3 years of age. Register online!

Level 1 - Bubblers
Intended for children who are at the beginning stages of swimming (little or no experience). This class introduces basic aquatic skills: being comfortable in the water, developing positive attitudes and effective habits to be safe in and around the water, blowing bubbles, back floats, front and back glides, learning good kicks, and arm movements. Ages 3 to 6.

Level 1A - Water Exploration

Intended for children, ages 7 to 13, who are at the beginning of swimming (little or no experience). This class introduces basic aquatic skills: being comfortable in the water, developing positive attitudes and effective habits to being safe in and around the water, blowing bubbles, back floats, front and back glides, learning good kicks, and arm movements. Ages 7 to 13.

Level 2 - Puffers
The objective of this class is to have participants find success in fundamental skills. Participants will learn to glide, float and recover to a vertical position on front and back without assistance. Participants will also further develop simultaneous arm and leg actions on front and back and foundation for future strokes will be established. Ages 3 to 6.

Level 3 - Floaters
Participants will continue to work on basic skills learned and progress to glide and float without support and recover to a vertical position. They will also further develop simultaneous and alternating arm and leg actions on the front and back, laying the foundation for future strokes. Ages 4 to 8.

Level 4 - Strokers
This class expands and increases proficiency in previous skills learned. Participants will learn and practice survival and learn to swim front crawl and elementary backstroke at rudimentary proficiency levels. Participants will be introduced to scissors and dolphin kicks, learn rules for headfirst entries and begin to learn to enter the water headfirst from a seated position. Ages 4 to 10.

Level 5 - Swimmers
Participants will improve and increase their endurance by swimming the strokes learned (front crawl, elementary backstroke) for longer distances and more proficiency. Participants will add arm actions with their scissors kick to perform sidestroke, learn back crawl and butterfly, and perform a simple open turn at a wall. Ages 7 to 14.

Level 6 - Racers
Participants refine their performance of all six strokes (front crawl, back crawl, butterfly, breaststroke, elementary breaststroke, and side stroke) and increase the distances that they swim. Flip turns on the front and back will also be taught. Ages 7 to 14.
