This class will focus on lap swimming and stroke perfection.

As always stroke integrity is our main goal at Aqua Tots, but this class will also focus on endurance and speed.
We will also have a unique opportunity to introduce competition to your child in a non-intimidating way. We will start by having students compete with themselves, and then have them compete in small groups through games and races. This competition will teach them how to work together as a team, and how to challenge themselves personally. It will raise their self-esteem and show them that competition can be fun!
We do offer make ups, but the days/times we offer are not guaranteed to work for
each family’s individual scheduling needs. A limited number of make ups are offered when parents submit prior absence notifications. Make ups can NOT be used to extend a session. If you are not renewing for the next session any unused make ups will expire on the last day of the session that your child is enrolled in. The summer session is sold separately therefore unused make ups cannot be used during the summer session.

Student who enroll once the school year has started can earn the following based on when they enroll. If you start in session #2 you can earn up to 5 make ups for the remainder of the school year, if starting in session #3 you can earn up to 3 make ups for the remainder of the school year Our summer session is sold separately and you can earn up 2 make ups to use during the summer session, when purchasing an 5 week (12-14 classes)
