Beginner & Intermediate Levels
Here at Swim Fanatics, we focus on giving your young swimmer personalized attention. We offer a warm and loving swim lesson environment that encourages children to explore and build success within their small group swim lesson program.
Our staff members are certified USA Swimming instructors that are trained within our unique program to provide safe and effective building blocks for your child’s success in the sport of swimming. Swim Fanatics instructors are well known for a loving but firm approach to introducing children to underwater exploration and stroke development. It is not uncommon to see many of our youngest of swimmers learning to swim at the early age two years old. We believe our unique teaching methods bring about this success!
We structure our programs to offer low student to teacher ratios so that our each of our swimmers within the group receives proper attention to bond and develop trust early on with their instructor. We believe developing relationships built upon trust provide children with security and motivation that bring about personal growth and development within our swim program.
Swimming is a necessary life skill. Introduce your child to the wonderful sport of swimming and see their eyes open to a whole new world of water fun. Encouraging your child to put safety first will prove to be one of the smartest decisions you can make as a parent.
Beginner Lessons: Ducklings
Our Beginner Swimmer programs offer small group swim instruction for children with no-to-little swimming experiences. These organized group classes focus on building a loving foundation of safety and enrichment in the water for children starting at age two yrs old up through age six. Our USA Swimming certified staff member will walk your young beginner through a fun and interactive program that introduces life-saving basic water practices to help your child quickly adapt to the water environment. These classes will include fun water play activities and sing-along routines to help transition your non-swimmer into a child that loves the water. It is normal for a new swimmer to demonstrate both fears of the water and separation difficulties from their parents. Please allow the instructor time to help your child adjust to the new environment by separating yourself from your child’s view during lessons. 30 minutes with 4:1 Ratio.
Beginner Swimmer Levels:
Ducklings: Ages 2-6 yrs
Intermediate Lessons: Tadpoles & Turtles
Our intermediate swim programs are for the little fishy of your family. These swimmers love the water and are comfortable trying new adventures within an aquatic environment. Our Tadpoles are swimming short distances on their own but have not yet mastered breathing without assistance. Turtle swimmers should be able to master swimming 12 feet without help and can demonstrate how to breath on their own. Both of these swim programs are 30 minutes each lesson with a 4:1 Ratio.
