Learning to swim, like aging gracefully or enjoying dried fruit, requires acceptance of pruney fingers. Outfit your little ones for aqua play with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get one month of swimming lessons for children aged 5–10 at Aquatic Adventures (up to a $110 value).
Aquatic Adventures’ staff of lifelong instructors and competitive swimmers transforms young fins into formidable flippers over the course of a month. Group lessons are divided into six class levels. Green guppies can wet their feet in the Seal program, which acquaints them with basic swimming skills in the shallower depths, and Walrus-level classes build on the basics to foster independence in swimmers who are comfortable putting their faces in the water, floating, and socializing with trout. Freestyle, backstrokes, and breath control constitute the Ice Fish curriculum, before the Macaroni Penguin program prepares youngsters for endurance swimming with longer distance practice and deep-water-diving skills. Children already privy to the secrets of the deep can enroll in advanced Polar Bear clinics that aim to further refine their skills through a focus on competitive swimming strokes and salmon hunting.
Though class sizes and times vary depending on the program’s skill level, instructors schedule a wide range of group lessons twice weekly to ensure smaller groups and greater individual attention. Lessons take place in an expansive indoor pool open year-round, excluding those few days when Neptune seizes it for his vacation home.
Aquatic Adventures' rates fluctuate throughout the season.
