Learning to Swim

June 4, 2010

Water Country USA is offering swim lessons for the first time this year. Our swim instructors are certified by the American Red Cross as Water Safety Instructors. Most of our Water Safety Instructors are also lifeguard instructors and are excited to help children learn how to be safe while in the water.

We are offering several levels of swim lessons beginning with “Parent and Child Aquatics” classes advancing up to “Learn-To-Swim” classes. If you are interested in any, please check out our website,  for details on each level.

“Parent and Child Aquatics” classes are for children between the ages of 6 months and 3 years as well as their parent or guardian. The class is designed to get children comfortable in the water and prepare them for the American Red Cross Preschool Aquatics class. Introducing children to the water early helps them feel more comfortable and teaches them about water safety.

“Preschool Aquatics” is for children ages 3-5 years old. Children learn about water safety and start basic skills such as blowing bubbles underwater, floating, and entering and exiting the water.

“Learn-To-Swim” classes are for children 5 years old and up. These classes start at level one and work up to level six. Children must demonstrate certain skills to advance to the next level.

We kicked off our swim lessons program by participating in the Guinness World Record attempt to offer the World’s Largest Swim Lesson. The lesson took place at 10 a.m. on June 3, and included 14 participants. Other members of the aquatics community came to serve as independent witnesses. We are eagerly waiting to see if the World Record has been broken and look forward to participating next year.

    I was going but when I found out it wasn’t free admission I didn’t bother to show up. What a shame I really wanted my 5 year old to learn how to swim. Oh well
