Swim ‘n Splash Swim Lessons

Drowning deaths are completely avoidable, so please do yourself a favor and verify that those you love are enrolled in a swim lesson program. Our swimming lessons will feature smaller class sizes and more training invested into the class instructors. Our lessons meet for two weeks, Monday through Thursday, with Friday used in cases of poor weather. The Swim ‘n Splash curriculum is intended for children starting around the age of three, who can be unaccompanied by their parent. Registration opens Monday, April 9 at the Boys Ranch Activity Center.

Level Assessment:

If Yes, Continue | If No, Guppy

Can your child retrieve an underwater object with eyes open, glide on top of the water with coordinated arm movements and have breath control?

If Yes, Continue | If No, Stingray

Can your child demonstrate strong skill in freestyle and backstroke, as well as fair to good ability to tread water unassisted?

If Yes, Continue to Bedford Surf Swim Team | If No, Dolphin

Guppy
Classes at this level will encourage children to become comfortable in the water without a parent, as well as enhance their learning of basic buoyancy and locomotion with interactive games. In this level, children will learn to submerge, blow bubbles, and how to float along with basic leg and arm movements. Intended for children roughly aged three to five years old. 

Stingray
In this class, children will be taught how to propel themselves through the water with coordinated kicking and arm actions, as well as add rhythmic breathing into the freestyle. Intended for children roughly aged five to eight years old who have had prior experience in the water and swim lessons. 

Dolphin
In this class, participants will begin developing and enhancing all four strokes, including rhythmic breathing for each. Intended for children roughly aged nine to thirteen years old and can float independently on front and back, as well as can demonstrate forward locomotion while floating.
