Swim Lessons

Swim Club Management Group believes in providing children with a positive environment in which they can feel comfortable and learn basic water safety. We feel that through patience, encouragement, and frequent repetition of skills, your child will have a fun, safe and rewarding swimming experience.

SCMG offers the following types of classes for beginners to more advanced swimmers:

Tadpole I and II (Ages 3-6)*

Tadpole I class is for a child who may be apprehensive in the water or who has never had swim lessons. For example, participants may not be comfortable with their face getting wet. This class introduces new swimmers to the pool and helps them become acquainted with the pool and the use of flotation devices. New swimmers will develop safe water habits in a fun and encouraging environment.

Tadpole II class is for the beginner swimmer who is comfortable in the water but has not yet mastered certain skills. Participants should be comfortable and well adjusted to the water (don’t mind getting their face wet) and eager to learn kicking and progressive paddlestroke. Additionally, they learn more about pool safety and developing independent floating skills.

Minnow I and II (Ages 6-9)*

Minnow I swimmers learn front and back floating skills, the paddlestroke, flutter kick, personal safety and the use of flotation devices. This class is for the school-age swimmer who has never had swim lessons but is comfortable in the water.

Minnow II swimmers continue to build confidence in their abilities by practicing paddlestroke skills, floating, and rotary breathing without the aid of flotation devices. Children learn new skills such as treading water and survival floating. Students will continue to work on the front crawl, backstroke, and learn breaststroke at this level. Students must be comfortable in the deep end and be able to swim 25 yards without a flotation device before the start of this class.
