GETTING THE WORD OUT...
The numbers are astonishing with regards to accidental aquatic related deaths in the US. According to the CDC, in 2005, there were 3,582 fatal unintentional drownings in the United States, averaging ten deaths per day. While American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend swimming classes as the primary means of drowning prevention for children younger than 4, it's still very important to teach our children how to swim and how to be safe around any aquatic environment.
Super Splasher Aquatics is here to do just that. It's important to get the word out to parents that it's never too early to introduce children to water. Early learning can prevent later disasters. While those numbers are heartbreaking, the real tragedy is that those drownings could have been prevented with the help of a few basic steps.
We offer swim lessons to individuals 6 months and up. Our swim program is progressive and age based. All of our lessons are 30 minutes long and sessions consist of 8 classes, which follow our curriculum. They are scheduled according to the type of lessons. Lessons are scheduled from Monday-Friday from 9:00am-7:00pm, Saturdays from 10:00am-1:00pm, and Sundays 12:00pm-5:00pm.
We have three tiers of lessons:
Group swim lessons are scheduled in sessions over the course of 8 weeks from September-April, 4 week sessions in May and 2 week sessions from June-August. To see the most current group session please visit our registration page. Our groups are small, as there are three children to one instructor in Level I, II and III. Level IV and V there are 4 children.
In addition to our pre-scheduled group swim lessons, we will organize 'private' group lessons as well. If you have three children in the same level or friends with children in the same level, we can schedule group lessons around your schedule as well. Please contact us for more information.
2. SEMI PRIVATE:
Semi Private lessons are scheduled on an appointment basis. There are two children to one instructor. If you have two children or friend with a child at the same level as yours, you can schedule semi private lessons around your busy schedule. If you don't have someone, but are interested in this option, please visit our Semi Private Partner Finder Forum to seek out a partner for your child.
Private lessons are one on one, personally designed around your child. These lessons are built according to each individual parent's goals for their child. These are scheduled on an appointment basis and can be done so around your schedule.
We offer five age based levels of swimming lessons. Our Baby Splashers classes are for children ages 6-36 months. Levels I-V are for students ages 3 and up. These descriptions are for parents in order to provide a broad description of the prerequisites and skills for each level. There are more skills involved in each level, which cannot be listed. All placements are made after an in-water evaluation, unless the parent knows the child is fearful of water or cannot put his/her face in the water. If the child is fearful, then he/she is placed in an appropriate beginner class based on his/her age.Please always remember that swim lessons are not "drown proofing". There should always be adult supervision when children are near water - even bathtubs. All "beginner" and even experienced swimmers have the potential to panic. Swim lessons are one important aspect of promoting water safety and learning competitive strokes for your children.
One adult (over 18 years of age) must be in the water with the child. Helps develop swimming readiness by leading parents and their children in water exploration activities with the objective of having fun and becoming comfortable in, on and around the water. AGES 6-36 months.
