Water Skills offers a seasonal program during the school year months and a separate summer program.
Swim Journey program is our method of teaching swimming and it sets us apart from the competition. This method is unique to our program and is based on our extensive research and as well as years of experience teaching children of all ages, levels, and abilities.
Our primary focus, when developing our Swim Journey program, is to help prevent drownings by giving opportunity to children and adults to learn how to swim and acquire good knowledge regarding water safety. We have broken down the fundamentals of learning how to swim into small achievable milestones. This allows our students to be challenged individually, one step at a time, based on their own personal development, and the goals that we have set for each level.
To accompany our Swim Journey program, we have designed a badge and certificate achievement system that tracks and rewards our students’ individual progress. Our students have the opportunity to earn different badges /certificates when they master a specific group of skills. As children grow and develop they take on more challenges, achieve more badges/certificate, and advance to higher levels. Our levels will take your child from those first days of water acclimation all the way through mastering all 4 competitive strokes.
A unique aspect of the Water Skills experience is our achievement level system. This system not only tracks and rewards our students’ individual progress but it also helps them develop a positive growth mindset. Badges are recorded onto the student’s profile, as they are earned, so both parents and instructors can track the student’s individual hard progress.
There are currently several types of lessons at Water Skills, based on the achievement level of your child. Children have the opportunity to earn different badges when they master a specific group of skills. Each badge level has been uniquely designed with a child’s physical and emotional development in mind. As children grow and develop they take on more challenges, achieve more badges, and then advance to higher swim levels.
