Starfish Swim School

StarFish Swim School is taught in eight 30 minute lessons with a low student to instructor ratio. Students will develop a high comfort level in the water and a readiness to swim (white/red level) and for those children who are developmentally ready, it will begin to teach swim skills (yellow/blue/green level). This class teaches swimming through creative, fun activities in the water. The StarFish Swim School curriculum has identified benchmarks (safety and swim skills) that each student should work towards and once the level has been mastered, the student will receive a color stage patch for achievement.
