STARFISH/SHRIMP (Parent and Me classes)

We combine both the Starfish and Shrimp classes at the Lincoln Village Pool, which is ideal for the younger swimmers because of our beach entry. The parent and children work together to feel comfortable in the water and following a structured class.

In the Starfish level children 9 to about 18 months work on blowing bubbles, singing songs, playing games and practicing skills on their front & back.

The Shrimp level is for children 18 to 48 months working on the above skills, but are also working towards independence from the parent to working with one of our instructors in a structured class. Many of the skills are the same as those taught in the Guppies class, but the parent helps ease the fear of being in the water. When the child is comfortable in the water without constant support of the parent, they are ready to be a Guppy.

Shrimps

Children work with their parent on basic skills, moving on their front and back, working towards independence from the parent to working with one of our instructors in a structured class. Many of the skills are the same as those taught in the Guppies class, but the parent helps ease the fear of being in the water. When the child is comfortable in the water without constant support of the parent, they are ready to be a Guppy.

The class location can be found in the session code; if there is a "C" it is at the Cordova Pool. Shrimp and Starfish classes are combined at Lincoln Village Pool.

Starfish

Children work with their parent in the water, becoming comfortable in the pool, blowing bubbles, singing songs, playing games and practicing skills on their front & back as a preparation for swim lessons during their preschool years.

Tadpoles

Focus on water orientation and floating. Through structured activities and games, children are guided to floating on their front and back while adding some propulsive action. When the child can move independently for 5 yards and move from a front to back float with some assistance, they will be ready to move on to the second part, Guppies.

Guppies

Introduction to swimming level 2. More independence and swimming motions are taught. The majority of the class is taught in the shallow water, they children do experience swimming in water above their heads.

Lobsters

Designed to accommodate older children with little to no experience in the water who need to learn the basics.

Sea Turtles

Students will work in the 3-1/2 feet water depth. They become completely independent from the instructor while swimming on their front and back. Once the child can swim 10 yards, without assistance, on their front and back, and float for 10 seconds, they will be on their way to becoming Sea Otter. There are a lot of basic skills in this level and it may take a few sessions for a child to master enough to move on. The basics are important to the success in other levels, so we spend a lot of time working on them.

Sea Otters

The skills they refine are the front and back crawl strokes, elementary backstroke and treading water. They start learning the side and butterfly strokes. After swimming 15 yards with good breathing and stroke techniques, they can move on to the Stingray class.

Adults

Learn to swim, refine your skills or let us help you get over your fear of the water. The adult lessons are for ages 13 & older who want help with their swimming. The class is structured to meet each individual's need.
Preschool level swim lessons (formerly known as Guppies) are broken up into 2 levels. Children work with our instructors and aides, to learn the basics to swimming. The level is broken up for faster advancement through the basic levels.
