Group Swim Lessons

pool diving class

Parent/Child: This is a group water orientation class for parents and their children. This class includes activities in order to make the children feel more comfortable in the water. Parents will learn how to hold their children and encourage proper movement through the water as they learn basic aquatic skills. A structured lesson lasts for 20-25 minutes, followed by 10 minutes of supervised play.  Children must have complete head control to take this class.

Red Band: This is a class for beginning swimmers who cannot put their face in the water comfortably yet and do not know how to swim.

Yellow Band: This is a class for advanced beginning swimmers who can comfortably put their face in the water and can swim a little.

Green Band:  This is a class for intermediate swimmers who can swim and want more work on technique and diving.

All lessons are 30 minutes

Cost for 4 sessions: $40/members, $55/guests

Group swim lesson levels correspond with the wristbands that children wear at our pool. Example:  If your child can swim enough to earn a yellow band, that is the class they should be in! Not sure which class your child fits in? Please contact us at aquatics@levinjcc.org.
