Junior Swim Lessons

We encourage your children every step of the way in their swimming. A lot of swimming success comes from confidence and practice. Our focus is on building each skill, rather than passing levels. It may take a couple tries to pass a level which is completely normal. We will celebrate all the little successes along the way!

Sessions are weekly and run from July 4 – September 2.

Cost: $99 plus HST per a child

Program Descriptions

Ratio 1:4

This is an intro to swimming class good for children up to approximately 7 years old.  Four year old’s may be unaccompanied but must be 4 on the first day of lessons.

Any child who is under 4 years old are welcome to take this class but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 16 in the water.

5:1 ratio
Best suited for children 8-10 years old or who have successfully completed the white level or who have been assessed by a lifeguard or instructor.

5:1 ratio
This level is best suited for children 11+ or who have successfully completed yellow and are ready for more focus on endurance and fine tuning their front stroke.  Must be able to swim 12m unassisted and without stopping.

 

We reserve the right to move children to different groups for safety reasons or to benefit the swimmer if they are in a level not suitable.  We want everyone to be successful! For unaccompanied 4 year old’s, the instructor reserves the right to request a parents assistance in water should they feel it in the best interest of your child.  Often this helps bridge a little gap to help them feel comfortable and find confidence in the water.
