A learn-to-swim program that teaches an advanced progression of swimming in a two-week period.
Westtown Aquatic Program's Swim School is a learn-to-swim program that teaches an advanced progression of swimming in a two-week period. The beginning swimmer is initially taught the self-rescue survival float which will allow them to remain calm and confident in a distressful situation. Once swimmers are able to achieve the self-rescue float, they're promoted to the next level from Novice to Advanced. Instruction is capped at a 5:1 ratio. Swimmers who also attend Summer Camp will swim from 9 a.m. - 9:45 a.m. Swimmers who are only attending swim lessons will swim from 10 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.
Skill Levels: To achieve a consistent progression we believe a fluid transition from group to group will assistant in maximizing swimmer engagement. Students will be tested on the first day of class and placed accordingly. Instructors or a deck manager will monitor your student’s progress and place them in the appropriate group.
Pre-requisite: All students must be 3 years of age and potty trained.
