This parent and infant class introduces the core competencies by providing instruction to the parent/guardian about how to introduce and help develop aquatic readiness and water safety for their child. Under the guided instruction of a Starfish Aquatics instructor, parents and infants are shown how to prepare their child for the aquatic environment through age-appropriate activities, games and songs. The purpose of this course is to develop in very young children a high comfort level in the water while training adults in water safety and drowning prevention.

Swim School

Seahorses - ages 3-4 Penguins - ages 5-6

Participants develop skills that are useful for self-rescue and a sense for how the body can move through the water. The purpose of this course is to set the foundation for learning correct strokes when the student is developmentally ready. This course is taught by Starfish Aquatics instructors who offer a unique approach when introducing learners to the water.

Stroke School

The Stroke School curriculum is designed for students who are comfortable floating, submerging and moving independently in the water and have mastered the skills introduced in Aqua School. Stroke School focuses on introducing the four major swimming strokes: freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly. Starfish Aquatics instructors focus on stroke development and endurance in preparation for the FIN Swim recreational swim team. Goggles and swim caps are highly encouraged.
