Stage C - Water Independence

Group Swim Lesson

Water acclimation classes allow students to develop comfort with underwater exploration and learn to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water. This class is intended for student’s age 3 years old and younger. Student must complete stage A and B before enrolling for this class. This stage lays the foundation that allows for a student’s future progress in swimming. Stage C is an introduction to a class setting without their adult present in the water with them. See Swim Lessons for an overview of our stages progression.

More Information

Our instructors look forward to meeting you and your child! Here is some important information for group swim lessons:

  • Swimmers should have their hair pulled back to ensure eyes are not obstructed.
  • We recommend goggles, but they are not required.
  • Children enrolled in stage A/B classes must wear a swim diaper.
  • Children who are not potty-trained must wear a swim diaper.
  • Swimmers should shower before entering the pool. 
  • If your child is nervous about getting in the water, a quick drop-off with the instructor while you remain out-of-sight for a short while may help the instructor to begin to build a relationship with your swimmer. 
  • Parents should remain seated on the pool deck on the opposite side of the pool from your child  (unless in stage A/B classes).
  • If you have any questions regarding the class or your child’s progress, please speak with your instructor after class.
  • Please check in daily with an aquatic staff member to make sure your swimmer's attendance is recorded.
