Willowood Swim Club 2017 Swim Lesson Program
This summer we will continue to offer our valued and respected swim lesson program to our members and local community. Class sizes of no more than 3 participants with better trained instructors have proved very successful over the last two years. We will be holding classes for children age 3 and above. Each participant will receive an evaluation and certificate at the end of the session.
Due to smaller class sizes the number of places will be limited. Please ensure that you register early to avoid disappointment. As with many swim lesson programs, parents will be asked to remain on the grass by the Manager’s office whilst lessons are in session. Children must be over the age of 3 (if your child is only 3 we ask you to consider if your child is able to listen to instructions and cooperate with an instructor in groups of three before you sign them up.)
New to 2017 we are offering Parent-Tot classes. This class will be once a week for 6 weeks. During this lesson, you will work with your child on pre-swimming skills and getting them comfortable in the water. This program is designed for infants/toddlers from aged 6 months to 36 months. There will be one instructor with a maximum of 12 children. Each child must be accompanied by an adult (max 2 adults per child).
Individual lessons. If you are interested in one-on-one lessons, there will be a list of Willowood instructors who are offering these sessions available upon request when the pool opens.
Swim lessons will be cancelled in the case of inclement weather OR if the outside temperature is below 68 degrees. If a Swimming Lesson is cancelled: You will receive a text message from the Swim Lesson Coordinator at least 45 minutes prior to the start of the lesson. It will be posted on our Willowood Swim Club Facebook Page. A make-up date will also be announced.
FOR MEMBERS on Saturday, May 13th from 12pm to 2pm.
FOR NON MEMBERS AND MEMBERS on Saturday, May 20th from 12pm until 2pm
and will continue during regular pool hours in the Manager’s office.
At the time of registration please bring with you your completed registration form with your desired session, level, and time slot. You may register more than one child and/or more than one session per registration form.
A check or cash payment is required at the time of registration. Please make checks payable to: Willowood Swim Club.
We schedule classes based on the number of individuals that sign-up therefore, THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS once you sign your child up. If a class is cancelled there will be a make-up lesson scheduled. If your child misses a lesson, there will be no individual make-up lessons.
Learn to Swim Level 1: The objective for Level 1 is to learn basic personal water safety information and skills to help the swimmer feel comfortable in the water. The swimmer will start developing positive attitudes, good swimming habits, and safe practices in and out of the water.
Learn to Swim Level 2: The objective for Level 2 is to give the swimmer success with fundamental skills. Swimmers will learn to float without support and recover to a vertical position. This level marks the beginning of learning how to swim on their front and back without support.
Learn to Swim Level 3: The objective for Level 3 is to build on previously learned skills by providing additional guided practice. They will be taught the survival float, diving from a seated position, freestyle, elementary backstroke, scissor and dolphin kicks and builds on the skill of treading water.
Learn to Swim Level 4: The objective for Level 4 is to develop the swimmers’ confidence in the strokes learned thus far and to improve other aquatic skills. They will improve their skills and increase their endurance by swimming great distances in freestyle and elementary backstroke. Backstroke, butterfly, breaststroke, and a basic turn will be taught in Level 4.
