Humankind has long sought to conquer water via such swimming styles as the backstroke, the doggy paddle, and the turtle-towed Jet Ski. Equip your offspring with similar aquatic athleticism with today's Groupon: for $59, you get four 30-minute children's swimming lessons and a one-year membership at Wings Over Water School of Swimming in Fairfield (a $154 value).
Wings Over Water prides itself on its Swimplicity curriculum, which emphasizes safety and comfort in the water to students. During four half-hour lessons ($26 per lesson) conducted in small class sizes, teachers will impart knowledge to fledgling fin-flappers in areas such as breathing, floating, basic propulsion, and safety jumps. And unlike the dolphins that sometimes teach renegade swimming classes in back-alley puddles, the instructors at Wings Over Waters have completed at least 40 hours of in-depth training, including certification in CPR and first aid. As Wings Over Water is a members-only facility, a one-year membership (a $50 value) is also included in this deal.
Wings Over Water prides itself on its state-of-the-art facility, with on-deck lifeguards keeping an eye and a gill on the indoor pool. The pool boasts a year-round temperature of 90 degrees. Swimming necessities, such as bathing suits and caps, are available for purchase, while antique Victorian diving helmets are not.
