Swimming Lessons

 
Registration & prepayment must be completed to enroll your child in the VCSU Swim Program. A minimum of 5 students must be enrolled in a level in order to offer that level. We reserve the right to combine levels if possible. No refunds after the first day of classes.

It is not uncommon for a child to stay in a particular level several times before successful completion. It is natural for participants to develop motor skills and become comfortable with water at different paces. Practicing skills during open swim is strongly recommended to improve swimming skills.

Parent and Child Aquatics (6 months-3 years). Child must wear swim diapers if not toilet trained) Builds basic water safety skills for both parents and children aged 6 months to approx. 3 years, helping infants and young children become comfortable in the water so they are willing and ready to learn to swim. These basic skills include adjusting to the water environment, showing comfort while maintaining a front or back position in the water and demonstrating breath control, including blowing bubbles or voluntarily submerging under water.
 
Preschool Aquatics (ages 4-5 years approx.) Gives young children about ages 4 and 5 a positive, developmentally appropriate aquatic learning experience that emphasizes water safety and survival concepts. Skills are age-appropriate, helping participants achieve success on a regular basis while in a class environment with their peers.
Level 1: Introduction to Water Skills Helps participants feel comfortable in the water.

Learn-to-Swim Levels 2-6

Based on a logical, multi-level progression that helps swimmers of all ages and varying abilities develop their swimming and water safety skills. It is designed to give participants a positive learning experience.
 
LEVEL 2: Fundamental Aquatic Skills Gives participants success with fundamental skills.
LEVEL 3: Stroke Development Builds on the skills in Level 2 through additional guided practice in deeper waters.
LEVEL 4: Stroke Improvement Develops confidence in the skills learned and improves other aquatic skills.
LEVEL 5: Stroke Refinement Provides further coordination and refinement of strokes.
LEVEL 6: Swimming & Skill Proficiency Refines the strokes so participants swim them with ease, efficiency, power & smoothness over greater distances. This level is designed with "menu" options that focus on preparing participants for lifetime fitness and safety, as well as more advanced courses, such as the Water Safety Instructor course, or other aquatic activities, including competitive swimming or diving.
