Swimming Lessons Overview
Swimming is a life-long sport that teaches courage, discipline, diligence and personal responsibility. Swimming is safe, with less risk of injury than most other activities and it promotes a clean, healthy lifestyle. Fit-N-Wise Aquatics offers a wide range of swim classes for all ages.
Fit-N-Wise Swim Lessons use a program developed by USA swim coaches with more than 20+ years of experience. The program was designed to teach kids the proper technique from the very beginning.
What are Swim Lessons?
The Swim Lesson curriculum is designed for children ages 6 months to adult. Benchmarks are established at each stage in the program that combines both swimming and safety skills. Students participate in experiential learning activities that allow them to explore the water in a creative and comfortable environment. Correct swimming techniques are taught from the very beginning, providing an easy transition to swim team. In this guide, you will find the curriculum used in the Octopus classes (ages 6 months to 36 months), FNW Swim classes (ages 2.5 and up), and our TAAF FNW Swim Team.
What Role Will I Play in My Child’s Swimming Development?
As a parent or caregiver, you play a vital role in your child’s swimming development. You have already taken the first step, by registering your child for swim lessons. From this point, you will continue to communicate with your child’s instructor and have your child practice, practice, practice! Under your devout supervision, the bathtub is a great place to start practicing! Bubbles, breath-holding, looking underwater, floating and kicking can all take place in the bathtub! A few trips to the pool between swim lessons will be very beneficial also. There is no need to push your child to do everything they are doing in swim lessons; just give your child the opportunity to get wet, splash around, and explore the water on their own terms. Please remember: SUPERVISION IS A MUST! While swimming lessons are one layer of protection, nothing is more important than supervision of your child. Keep your eyes on your child whenever you are in, on, or near any water!
Fit-N-Wise Aquatics offers one-on-one instruction for children ages 3 through adult. Private swimming lessons for adults or children, special water exercise or personal training in the water are available throughout the year.
Please call well in advance for any private training, as instructors and pool times are limited, especially during the summer months.
