I Can Swim – 2:00-3:00pm
The I Can Swim program is a dynamic aquatic learn to swim program in which participants learn to swim better, faster. It promotes participation, fun and success in the water. Our program does not have a level system and as such there is no pass or fail at the end of each session. Instead, children progress through the program at their own rate, achieving each of the 54 skills as they complete them. Classes are created based on the children who have registered and participants are grouped based on their previously achieved skill level in our program or their age for new swimmers. Our lessons are taught in a class with a 1:5/6 ratio.
Ages: 6-12
Program duration: 60 minutes
Cost: $100
