Before man conquered his fear of water, he amused himself with dust sports such as pushing boulders off cliffs, wrestling tumbleweeds, and falling in the dust. Wash away fears with today's Groupon: for $49, you get four 30-minute swim lessons at Blue Water Divers Swim School (a $100 value). This Groupon is valid at two locations: Sheraton Crossroads in Mahwah and Holiday Inn Hotel in Saddle Brook.
Blue Water Divers Swim School's experienced team of aquatic educators leads beginner and advanced swim programs for all ages, including adults. Beginner swimming sessions school no more than four burgeoning paddlers per class, as parents, tots, and tadpoles learn primary swimming skills, floating methodologies, and tips for eating crackers underwater in heated, indoor pools. Those with well-honed paddle skills may anchor themselves to one of four different courses, all limited to five students per class. The more advanced courses require students to swim the width of the pool using a variety of strokes without stopping. The Sharks class teaches techniques such as the butterfly stroke, methods for increasing endurance, and the consequences of splashing the wrong person.
