$39 for Four Summer Swim or Swim Blitz Classes ($86 Value)
During 30-minute group classes, qualified swimming instructors work individually with children as young as 6 months old. In lower class levels parents or caregivers join their tots in the water. In more advanced levels kids learn independently as they work to master skills such as torpedo kicks, breaststroke, and 15-second back floats. Customers who choose to use their Groupon for Swim Blitz 2012 will receive all classes within a single swim-intensive week. Membership fee is waived for all Groupon customers during use of their Groupon.
King's Swim Academy
Jeff Smith, a college swim coach and swim-club aquatics director, and Joan Smith, an NCAA all-American swimmer and triathlete, joined forces to open a swim academy that teaches youngsters how to swim safely while having fun. The pair operates two facilities, each with its own heated pool staffed by instructors who have all graduated from King's Swim Academy's training program. Their program begins with Parent and Me classes for kids as young as 6 months old, which introduce children to the water and teach basic skills such as kicking and changing their own diaper underwater. As students progress through the levels, they eventually learn skills such as freestyle swimming, backstroke, flip turns, and survival swimming. Instructors also lead a swim-technique and fitness class that prepares swimmers for swim team while promoting a healthy lifestyle and honing stroke skills.
