Pre-School Swimming

Winter Session Runs: January 2nd - March 12th

Instructors follow the American Red Cross’ plan to introduce new swimming and water safety skills that are developmentally appropriate for young children. Pre-School Swimming puts the “fun” in fundamentals. Each class is loaded with enjoyable, engaging and challenging activities that motivate children to want to perform and learn to swim.

Children ages 2 - 3 years old are introduced to the basic skills. These skills lay the foundation for developing water competency and the future skill development of swimming strokes. In addition, your child will start to develop positive attitudes and safe practices around the water.

  • Entering the water independently using ramp, steps or side and travel at least 5 yards.
  • Submerging mouth and blowing bubbles for at least 3 seconds.
  • Exiting the water safely.
  • Gliding on front for at least 2 body lengths with support.
  • Rolling to back and floating for 3 seconds with support.
  • Recovering to a vertical position with support.
  • Learn to float with assistance.
  • Learn to recover to a vertical position.
  • Explore combined arm and leg actions on the front and back.
  • Learn more self-help and basic rescue skills.

It’s quite common for children to participate in several sessions of Pre-School Swimming before they are able to successfully demonstrate all the skills. That’s okay! It is not important how quickly they move through a level, but that they achieve each skill.

Our Swim Diaper Policy:

Accidents happen! In order to prevent as many fecal related incidents in the pools as possible,
all children ages 4 and under are now required to wear 2 Reusable Finis Cloth Liners

Please do not use the pools or club if you or your child are showing any sign of a gastrointestinal illness.
