Investing in Your Child’s Safety
According to the U.S. Center of Disease and Control and Prevention “Drowning is the second-leading cause of injury related death among children under the age of 15.” By investing in swimming lessons, you are investing in your child’s safety.
The number one goal of our program is to teach your child to swim – therefore increasing their chance of not becoming part of the above mentioned statistic. We feature SwimAmerica swimming lessons… the only nationally recognized lessons program created and endorsed by the American Swimming Coaches Association (ASCA). The progressions and skills taught in this program have been developed by our nation’s aquatic experts and are implemented by our fully trained SwimAmerica certified coaches.
At Water Wise Swim School, we strive to not only teach your child how to swim – but how to swim well! We instruct with an emphasis on correct competitive swimming techniques right from the beginning. Your child will not only learn freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly - but they will be taught using the same drills that Olympic team members use to fine tune their strokes. Streamline, body-roll, and bi-lateral breathing are just a few of the skills that will be emphasized in our learn-to-swim program.
SwimAmerica Stations – a Goal-Oriented System of Learning
SwimAmerica lessons are a series of ten stations of stroke progressions and skill development. Graduation from station to station in our program is determined by the attainment of the “Advancement Goals” established for each level. Once your child has reached the advancement goal for a particular station, they then “move-up” to the next station and begin working on more advanced skills. This way, each student progresses at their own rate - which we believe is the best way to keep the kids learning and motivated to succeed.
Each child enrolled in Water Wise Swim School receives a SwimAmerica Award Certificate on the first day of lessons. As a child conquers the Advancement Goals established for each station, they receive a gold “Graduation” sticker to place on their colorful, American flag themed certificate. We like to make a big deal about advancement – and we think you should too. You can frame your child’s certificate or post it on the family fridge – but be sure your kids keep documenting their progress by applying their stickers to the appropriate station on their certificate. This can help keep them motivated to learn and progress!
