Parent & Me
Water Bugs I: Introduction (6-17 months)Our beginner students are introduced to a fun and friendly aquatic environment with the assistance of a parent/guardian. Although our beginner students are ready to enjoy the aquatic environment, they are not quite ready to do it without the help of a familiar face. Students at this level will be introduced to beginner kicking drills, submersion drills, back floating. Students will carryout many of these drills with the help of songs that are specifically tailored to the swim school atmosphere.
Water Bugs II: Intermediate-Advanced (18-36 months)Our intermediate/advanced students will be introduced to more challenging levels of kicking drills, submersion drills, back floats and other fun activities with the help of a parent/guardian. Music will continue to play a major role at this level as we prepare our students to participate in swim lessons without the help of a familiar face.
