Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS THE YOUNGEST AGE A STUDENT CAN TAKE LESSONS?
Our ISR lessons can be taken by infants as young as 6 months. We have the experience and know-how to work with persons of all ages, from children to adults.
CAN A STUDENT THAT YOUNG REALLY LEARN HOW TO SWIM?
Infants and toddlers may lack the coordination and development to learn strokes, but anyone can learn the fundamentals of breath control, floating and water propulsion. Young children often don’t have the self-doubt that adults have, making it an ideal time for them to pick up a new skill.
WHAT AGE GROUPS DO YOU PROVIDE INSTRUCTION FOR?
Our ISR Program is ideal for children from 6 months to 4 years old.
Our Learn-to-Swim lessons are best for children of at least 4 years old or who have completed the ISR program. Learn-to-Swim Lessons are aimed at individuals who are at least 4 years old. Adults are also welcome to our Learn-to-Swim program. No prior swimming experience is necessary.
Young Masters is for children (4+) who have graduated from the Learn To Swim Program.
WHAT DO THE DIFFERENT AGE GROUPS LEARN?
6 to 15 months: Children in this age group will learn to roll from a facedown position to an unassisted float.
15 months and up: Children in this age group will learn the Swim-Float-Swim sequence.
4 years and up: Children in this age group or those who have already completed the ISR Swim-Float-Swim lessons are ready for stroke-work/traditional lessons. These lessons focus on developing proper technique and body positioning for swimming freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly.
HOW LONG DOES IT NORMALLY TAKE A STUDENT TO LEARN?
ISR lessons are normally completed within 6-8 weeks of consecutive lessons. Our one on one Learn-to-Swim lessons are open-ended; our instructors will work hard until both parent and child are satisfied.
HOW FREQUENTLY DO ISR STUDENTS SWIM?
ISR students will swim 5 days a week (Monday-Friday) for 10 minutes each lesson. This frequency is necessary until the student has completed his/her training, generally 6-8 weeks. After this time, optional maintenance lessons can be taken at intervals appropriate to the student’s age and the frequency of swimming outside of lessons.
HOW FREQUENTLY DO STROKE/LTS STUDENTS SWIM?
LTS students swim once a week until they gain the skills necessary for group training sessions.
