Community Pool Service


Our program comprises four different levels of group swim lessons starting from lessons for non-swimmers to lessons for advanced swimmers. Our aim is to teach your children how to swim in a fun but very educational way.

Swim Lesson Levels and Descriptions:

Level I: GuppiesThis level focuses on children learning to be both comfortable and safe in the water. The introduction to basic skills includes students putting their faces in the water (blowing bubbles) and getting their hair wet. Both kicking and moving their arms will be included. Having fun is imperative at this level to reassure students’ interest in swimming. Minimum age limit is 3 years. We recommend this class for any children who have never taken swim lessons no matter what age they may be.

Level II: Minnows– The objective at this level is to teach the fundamental skills needed to start swimming. Some of these skills include arm movement, floating without support, kicking (kickboards will be used at this level), and breath control. At this level children will most likely be able to swim in short spurts at a water level where they can stand. Stream lining is another important objective at this level. Teaching the children to push off the wall is a vital step in continuous swimming.

Level III: Fish– At this level, building on what has been previously learned is vital. Increasing the child’s coordination and awareness of various strokes is the goal. They are comfortable in the water, but need to be introduced to technique. The introduction of freestyle swimming and backstroke will be the focus of your lessons. Diving will also be introduced at this time if the pool depth allows.

Level IV: Sharks– This class is fully capable to swimming, but needs to be refined in strokes and endurance in the water. At this level the perfection of diving (if applicable) and the introduction to more advanced skills such as the butterfly stroke will be taught to the class.


$80 for eight forty five minute sessions
