BEGINNER LEVELS

(Supervised Swimmer)

The most frequently asked question is "how long will it take my child to learn how to swim?". There are as many answers as there are children and it depends very much on the individual. The most important concept to understand is that swimmers achieve levels of proficiency.

Beginners will learn to respect, not fear the water, and to have fun but they should be supervised by a parent or guardian.
