Starfish Swim School-Group Swim
Our Starfish Aquatics and Starfish Swim School is unlike anything offered at other facilities. Students move through levels at their own pace, mastering skills before advancing. All levels include basic water safety and helping in an emergency. On the first day, abilities are assessed and students are placed in an appropriate group.
Star Babies Aquatics helps young children get ready to swim by emphasizing fun in the water. Parents and children participate in several guided practice sessions that help children learn elementary swimming skills, including water entry, bubble blowing, front kicking, back floating, underwater exploration and more. This program fosters a high comfort level and builds confidence while teaching parent safety information and techniques to help you orient your children in the water. Parent(s) will be in the water. Swim diapers are required under bathing suit.
Children learn water safety, survival skills and foundational swimming concepts in a safe and fun environment. The parent’s participation in the water is based on your child’s ability and level assigned. Parents should always be prepared to enter the water, especially on the first day of class.
