Parent & Tot

While your child is a tot, they will be introduced to the water and begin to learn the basic skills of breath exchange (bubbles), floating on their front and back, kicking, and going under water. This class is designed to help your swimmer be safe and comfortable in the water. They will also develop a comfort for not only being in and around the water, but also going underwater. Skills are taught with songs and games that make learning fun for your child!  More Info>>
