Swimming Lessons FAQ
1. Who can enroll in swimming lessons?
-Swimming lessons are typically open to individuals of all ages,
from infants to school-aged. Our lessons are divided by skill
level, then further divided by age if we have more than one
class of the same skill level.
2. What are the benefits of learning to swim?
-Learning to swim has numerous benefits, including improved
water safety, increased confidence, enhanced cardiovascular
fitness, and muscle development. Swimming also involves
cross-brain communication, so it is beneficial for your brain. It
is a valuable life skill that can also be enjoyable and a great
form of exercise.
3. How long does it take to learn how to swim?
-The time it takes to learn how to swim varies from person to
person. Factors such as age, previous experience, and comfort
in the water all play a role. Consistent practice and
participation in lessons can expedite the learning process.
4. What should I bring to swimming lessons?
-Participants should bring a swimsuit, towel, goggles (optional,
but very helpful for all levels), and any other personal items
needed for changing. Please do not bring any type of floaties
or water shoes as they hinder the ability to learn how to swim.
5. Do I need to know how to float before taking swimming
lessons?
-No. Swimming lessons are designed to accommodate
individuals at various skill levels, including beginners.
Instructors will start with basic water safety skills and progress
to more advanced techniques as participants become more
comfortable in the water.
6. How many lessons are recommended for a beginner?
-The number of lessons needed for a beginner vary. Some
people may feel confident after a few lessons, while others
may benefit from a more extended course. Consistent
attendance and practice outside of lessons can significantly
impact skill development.
7. What is the instructor-to-student ratio in swimming
lessons?
-The instructor-to-student ratio depends on the level and the
age group. Smaller ratios allow for more personalized
attention, while larger groups may encourage a social learning
environment.
8. Are private lessons available?
-Yes, we do offer private lessons for individuals seeking one-on -one instruction. Private lessons can be tailored to specific goals
and provide a more personalized learning experience.
9. What safety measures are in place during swimming
lessons?
-Safety is a top priority during swimming lessons. Instructors
are trained in water safety and we have a lifeguard on duty
during all lessons. Participants are also required to follow
safety rules.
10. What do parents/guardians do during lessons?
-During the Baby and Toddler classes you will be in the water
with your child. For all of the other levels you may drop off
your child, watch your child from the pool deck, or wait inside.
Some children feel more comfortable if you are nearby and
some behave better if you are not within eyesight. You may
have to try a couple options to see what works the best for
your child.
11. Can I continue swimming lessons after learning the
basics?
-Absolutely! Advanced swimming lessons are available for
those looking to refine their technique, learn different strokes,
or prepare to tryout for a competitive swim team!
