lessons with one caregiver in the water

A group swimming lesson is a 30-minute block of time where participants will work together with Julie in a group setting. Different, progressive skills will be taught through the 8-week session. Sessions should be repeated until you are ready for the next level.

 
 

SEa Otters

For infants, 2 WEEKS through 8 MONTHS

Sea Otters allows for the littlest swimmers to learn, grow and bond with caregivers.

Early exposure to water is linked to so many beneficial attributes, like early walking, greater immunity, and high self-esteem. Not to mention an added layer of safety around the water.

Babies are born with the natural ability to hold their breath and kick - an instinct they lose anywhere from 2 – 8 months, so the earlier they get in the water, the more we can build on their natural ability! Our special, optional, hoola-hoop activity in one of the final weeks of the swimester demonstrates their natural instincts.

This class is taught with 6-7 children per class + a caregiver.

Manatees

for babies, 6 through 24 MONTHS

Manatees tend to be a bit older and animated than the littlest Sea Otters. The class focuses on happy swimmers, teaching the parents the skills they need to feel comfortable in the water with their child. Reinforcing safety routines while keeping the lesson fun is the main goal of this level.

Skills covered include: floating, kicking, submersion, and safety. As each child develops, new skills are added to keep the process fun and inviting. The Manatee group is both a good place to begin to learn to swim, and a place for the little ones (Sea Otters) to graduate.

This class is taught with 6-7 children per class + a caregiver.


Sea Turtles

for Advanced toddlers, 18 Months- 3 years

This class is for students who need a bit more than the Manatee class. They will learn all the basic safety skills and terminology. Students in this class are introduced to floating, submersion and safety skills, independent swimming, breath-work and stroke development.

All students in this class are returning swimmers. If you are interested in this level, talk to your instructor about whether or not your child would benefit from participating in this class.


Moray eels

for beginners, 2-4 years

This class has an emphasis on making toddlers and young children comfortable around the water. They will learn all the basic safety skills and terminology. Students in this class are introduced to floating, submersion and safety skills, independent swimming, breath-work and stroke development.

This class will give first-timers the special attention that goes along with learning the basic routine of the swimming classes, terminology and safety skills that are practiced with every swimmer from the time they start Swim With Phyn.

This class is taught with 4-5 children per class + a caregiver.

STingrays

for beginners, 2-4 years

New students should sign up for a Moray Eel class. Stingrays are always recent graduates of Sea Turtles or Moray Eels.
