Mommy and Me
Designed to have a parent (or designated adult) in the pool with the child for all classes. The focus is on introducing your child to the pool and swimming as well as giving you basic tools to help your child along the way, and for use after the classes are completed.
Tadpoles (6 – 24 months old): These classes introduce swimming and jumping at a slow pace. There is limited underwater activity the first week and minimal underwater the second week. If a child advances quickly, we will encourage and guide the parent to help the child.
Guppies (18 – 36 months old): These are similar to Tadpoles. This group goes underwater sooner, more often, and advances more quickly.
Standard Group Lessons
These swim classes have 3-5 students per instructor. Group classes are designed to have similarly skilled and aged students in the same group. This allows all of the students to accomplish more skill work per class. All of the standard group lessons require some knowledge of the water, safety, and swimming. At a minimum, each student must be able to independently swim 10 – 15 feet with head underwater and have some arm movement. If the student had prior TTSS lessons, TTSS level 3 is the minimum requirement.
Seahorses (4 -6 year olds / Level 3 – 5): Students must be comfortable in the water and be able to independently swim 10 – 15 feet with head underwater and have some arm movement. The focus is to improve basic swimming and survival skills. Freestyle is the main stroke focus; however, it is possible students can advance to Backstroke or Butterfly. Students will also learn to jump out into the pool and swim to the instructor along with learning to dive to the bottom.
Orcas (5 – 8 year olds / Level 3 – 5): This class is designed for the older student who is getting a late start on learning to swim. This group takes the same approach as the Seahorses.
Manta-Rays (9+ year olds / Level 3 – 5): This class is designed like the Orcas.
Porpoises (5 – 8 year olds / Level 5 – 8): Students must have a strong Freestyle and a general knowledge of the 3 other competitive strokes. The main focus is to strengthen the skill level of each stroke as well as the student’s physical strength and endurance.
Cudas (9+ year olds / Level 7+): This class is designed as an introduction to competitive swimming. The focus is on perfecting each stroke while increasing strength and endurance.
