The primary goal of the first swim lesson is to assess where the student's current skill level is and to allow the student to get to know the instructor. Once the instructor knows the student's abilities, your lesson is then custom-tailored and individualized to meet your unique needs and specific swimming goals. Just as no two swimmers are the same, no two lessons are the same!
Here are the different types of lessons offered, each individualized to make sure you are successful in meeting your swimming goals:
Lessons start as young as 6 months old. In this lesson, parents get in the water with their child! The swim instructor works one-on-one with the parent and child to help get the child comfortable in the water.
These lessons are geared especially for the preschool age group! Throughout all our lessons we bring toys and games to make learning to swim fun. In our preschool program we work with kids age 3-5 to peak their interest in swimming and begin moving through the different levels.
Learn to Swim Through Each of Our Levels:
Level 1: Introduction to Water Skills- This level is designed to help students feel comfortable in the water and to enjoy the water safely
Level 2: Fundamental Aquatic Skills- This level is to give student success with fundamental swimming skills (i.e. floating without support and recovering to a vertical position).
Level 3: Stroke Development- This level builds on skills learned in level 2 through feedback and practice.
Level 4: Stroke Improvement- This level helps to build confidence in the strokes learned and to improve other aquatic skills.
Level 5: Stroke Refinement- This level is for the coordination and refinement of the swimming strokes.
Level 6: Personal Water Safety, Fundamentals of Diving, Lifeguard Readiness, Fitness Swimmer- This level refines strokes so students can swim with ease, efficiency, power, and smoothness over greater distances.
* At Aquatics with Mermaid Jenna we believe every swimmer is an individual and deserves swim lessons custom-tailored to meet their needs and goals. Everyone learns at a different pace; without seeing you in the water, there is no way for us to estimate how quickly you will move through each of the levels. Instead, we will move you through the levels as we see fit. *
