Once a student is a level 4 swimmer, they have gained the skill and confidence to swim anywhere.
However, children should continue lessons year round until they have mastered the 4 competitive strokes or
have moved onto swim team.
We love our unique opportunity to offer lessons year round. We believe that consistent exposure to
instruction offers students the greatest long term benefit.
Simple, continual steps build great technique. Swimming is about linking skill and confidence. Children lose

with adult supervision and, if necessary, a floating device. This will prepare them for a great swimming
lesson experience when they are age appropriate and ready to be in a structured formal lesson
Ideally, the best age to enroll a child in formal swimming lessons is between 3-4 years of age. We teach in a
non-parent participation lesson. Generally, a child is not mature enough to be in this type learning
environment until they willingly go to someone that they don\'t know, can listen and follow directions, and
