World-Class Swimming Lesson Highlights at Meadowbrook Pool:
Tot w/Adults Lessons (Ages 6 months - 4 years)
This class helps parents introduce their infants and toddlers to the swimming pool. We teach basic water adjustment and swimming movements using songs and games, with an emphasis on enjoyment and relaxation. Each child must be accompanied into the water by a parent or adult. We do require swim diapers or tight-fitting plastic pants.
Three-Year-Olds Lessons (Age 3)
Children learn basic swimming skills and water safety in these small group classes. We introduce children to these swimming skills: basic water adjustment bubbles, breath-holding, front and back floats, kicking, arm pulls, and water safety skills. Children must have completed one session of Tots and must be willing to work in the water with an instructor. We maintain a 3:1 student to instructor ratio.
Kinder Lessons (Ages 4 & 5)
Participants will start with basic water adjustment and eventually learn these skills: front and back floats, flutter kick, rolling from front to back, side breathing, crawl stroke with bilateral side breathing, backstroke, whip kick, treading water, diving, and water safety. On the first day of class children are sorted into groups by ability level.
Beginning Youth Lessons Levels 1-3 (Ages 6 – 16)
Our swim lessons emphasize safety, fitness, and fun! We teach techniques with the use of drills and instructor feedback. All levels include safety components. We will sort children into groups according to ability level on the first day of class.
Advanced Youth Lessons Levels 4-6 (Ages 6 – 16)
Swimmers must have passed Level 3, be safe in deep water, and demonstrate crawlstroke with proper side-breathing.We will move participants who do not meet this prerequisite to a Beginning Youth class if there is space available.
Adult Swim Lessons (Ages 16 and older)
Our adult swim lesson time is designated for individuals that are 16 and older; and all ability levels. With a focus on stroke technique and water safety, participants will learn to explore the water and develop lifelong skills.
