WaterKids

3 Years – 12 Years

We use a child-centered teaching approach focused on water adjustment, personal safety, basic survival skills, and basic through advanced swim techniques. Our highly-trained instructors work with students to develop a harmonious relationship with the water. They build a strong foundation for the strokes by introducing breathing exercises, correct body alignment, building core body strength, and propulsion. As our students progress, we add developmentally appropriate strokes. The WaterKids learn-to-swim program helps build confidence, self-esteem, and independence in students. Kids have fun while learning to respect the water.

The Waterbabies philosophy, combined with ‘Swimplicity – Learn to Swim’ technology, forms the foundation of our WaterKids program. Swimplicity was developed by Bill Boomer and Milt Nelms (Olympic swim coaches) and adapted for a Learn To Swim program by Edie Flood of “Wings Over Water” swim Schools in New York.
