Swim Survival Safety™
Swim Survival Safety™ is life-saving aquatic problem solving. Every baby, toddler, preschooler or young school aged child is taught the life saving maneuver of rolling over and floating on their back unassisted. This becomes their automated response if they find themselves in the water unexpectedly. This foundational skill will accelerate your child into learning to swim and be water independent at the earliest possible age!
Swim Survival Safety™ for Infants and Toddlers
A parent or trusted adult will join their child age 7m-3y in our Swim Survival Safety classes. Children will learn to turn over and float unassisted to the count of 10. They then learn to turn over and float unassisted and fully clothed for 5 full minutes as their 2nd foundational skill. Training is systematic and gradual and there is no preconceived time frame to attain this skill. Instructor approval for ages 7m-3y is required to move into beginning Swim Survival Safety.tm lessons. These lessons are offered within our perpetual swim lesson program.
Swim Survival Safety™ for Preschoolers
Preschool Swim Survival Safety™ is for children ages 4y-6y of age. Children will be in the pool on their own and will earn their first Blue Ribbon when they can turn over and float unassisted to the count of 10. A second Blue Ribbon is awarded when children can kick on their back for 40 feet fully clothed and to safety. Children ages 4y to 6y may join a Beginning Survival course when offered if they are able to fully submerge their heads willingly and are not fearful of being in the pool without their parent.
Perpetual Weekly Lessons
Swim Survival Safety™ lessons will accelerate your child into learning to swim at a faster pace than any other type traditional swimming lessons. This is because children always know they have a safe place to go if they run out of breath. In perpetual weekly lessons we will work with your child to advance their skills all the way to the pre competitive level of swim!
