Starfish and Pufferfish classes host children aged 9 months to 3 years old who learn how to hold their breath and perform basic floats with the help of a parent or grandparent. Open to swimmers 2.5 years and older, Otter and Seal classes teach kids to relax in the water without parents by their side. Well-supervised Sea Lion, Porpoise, and Dolphin classes ease swimmers aged 4 to 12 years into lessons on strokes, advanced breath control, and how to extract promises from adults before retrieving car keys from pool bottoms. Advanced Stroke instruction ups the ante, prepping children from 5 to 12 years old for competitive swimming, increasing endurance while covering the four main strokes as well as wall turns.
Evo Swim School
Owned and operated by veteran competitive swimmer David Tait, Evo Swim School leads fun, structured classes that tutor young pupils in the watery arts. The classes start swimmers at a young age, introducing babes as young as 9 months to the water, and range up to lessons in advanced strokes that prep 12-year-olds for competitive swimming. The school sets parents' minds at ease with low student-to-teacher ratios; entry level and intermediate classes have one instructor in the pool for every four students.
During classes, parents are free to relax in the WiFi-enabled waiting room, where pool-overlooking windows provide an easy way to keep an eye on paddling young'uns. A kids' play area is also on hand to keep water-shy siblings and rust-prone sibling bots occupied while their amphibious brethren frolic in the water.
