OVERVIEW Our one on one lessons for infants teach the student to rotate from a face down position to their back and float. Once they have mastered rotating to their back and maintaining a survival float, they will be required to attend lessons diapered and clothed. Toddlers and older students are taught to propel with their face in the water, rotate to their back to float for rest and air then to rotate back to their stomach to continue to propel. This sequence can be repeated as needed. Each student will complete lessons in clothing once the skills are acquired. Once younger students have survival skills, they can join our group lessons. For more information please refer to the Programs page. Parents interested in lessons are welcome to observe lessons prior to registering for any aquatic program; references available upon request. All lessons are offered Monday through Thursday. Private Lessons: Basic survival instruction from 6 months and up. The basic survival lessons teach an infant the ability to rotate from a face-down position to an aquatic survival float. Once the survival float is mastered, the student will also attend lessons diapered and fully clothed. Toddlers and older students are taught to hold their breath, then to propel in the water, rotate from a face down position to their back to get air and rest, then return to a face down position to continue propulsion. This sequence can be continued as needed. Once mastered, students will also attend lessons fully clothed. Lessons are one-on-one conducted daily, Monday through Thursday only. It typically takes 4 to 6 weeks for the survival skills to be acquired. Lesson fees are $70 per week with a $25 family registration fee. We have a continuous enrollment.
