Swim Lessons | 6 Months to 5 Years | PJCC
Award winning swimming lessons are offered at the PJCC including group lessons, private lessons and semi-private lessons for all ages.
Swim Lesson Level 1 - Water Babies 6 mo.-3 Years
This interactive class is designed for babies to become comfortable swimming independently in and under the water by working together with their parents in the pool. Babies will learn to be relaxed while floating independently on their backs and swimming with their eyes down for a distance of three to five feet. They will also be introduced to pop-up breathing.
Swim Lesson Level 2 - Water Wigglers 2-3 Years
For children who are graduates of the Water Babies class. Children will work independently from their parents and master pop-up breathing. They will also learn how to do 'big arms,' in which children learn to use their arms while swimming on their front. They will learn how to be comfortable kicking on their backs, in addition to completing an unassisted turnaround swim.
Swim Lesson Level A - Tadpoles 3-5 Years
For children who are beginner swimmers or nervous in the water. Children will learn submersions and back floats while learning how to feel safe in the water. The foundation of streamlining will also be introduced, in which children learn the proper basic body position for all strokes. The use of positive reinforcement is critical to help the child build trust and confidence.
Swim Lesson Level B - Frogs 3-5 Years
