Certified instructors teach adults and kids aged 6 months and up in one of Buckler's three large warm-water pools. An initial individual assessment of each swimmer helps determine what level of class the student should be in. After assigning students to a class level, instructors begin to teach swimming basics such as breath retention, strokes, and water safety skills. They evaluate swimmers weekly and encourage their charges to proceed and learn at their own pace. Deck staff constantly supervise the deck and pool, and a room with one-way viewing glass provides a quiet place for parents to watch their children learn.
Buckler Aquatics' Red Cross certified swim instructors teach kids ages six months and up the ways of the water in two large, clean, heated pools. For their youngest charges, they use the Buckler Method, a style of teaching designed for babies.
The instructors assign all swimmers to classes based on ability, providing individualized instruction in a group setting. They focus on encouragement and simple technique corrections, allowing each swimmer to proceed at his or her own pace. Parents can observe all the pool fun through a one-way window adjacent to the pool, or join in the splashing during monthly free family swims.
