Indoor Swim Lessons

Indoor Swim Lessons Are Back!

 

Swim lessons are returning for the winter months.  Through a partnership with Riverwoods, BVRA is able to offer indoor lessons through the winter months.  These classes are once a week for a six week session.  They are small group lessons and your group is the only ones in the pool.  Please Note: The Riverwoods pool is a single depth of 4 feet.  Any child who is not a proficient swimmer will need an adult to accompany them into the pool.   The pool is located on Ridgecrest Drive in the Riverwoods Complex.  

Water Babies (6-36 months)

This course provides water adjustment and swimming readiness skills, water safety knowledge, and practices utilizing songs and games to provide fun and enjoyment of the water. These lessons focus on repetitive basic water skills and parents must be in the water with children.

Preschool Fundamentals (3-4 yrs old)

This class is for kids who are just getting used to being in the water.  The class will be comprised of group activities in which kids bob in the water, submerge their face in the water, blow bubbles, and move freely in the water.  the zero entry area of the pool with a maximum depth of 3 feet is used for this class.  Parents may enter the water with their children or simply wait outside the pool.   Swim diapers are required for all children who are not yet potty trained.  

Level 1- Introduction to Water Skills 

Level 1 encourages independent development of fundamental aquatic skills.  This class helps participants feel comfortable in the water and enjoy the water safely. A child in this class should be tall enough to stand with head above water at 3ft. as there is a focus on beginning to work independently.  New techniques that are introduced in this class include: entering water by stepping or jumping in from the side, submerging entire head, blowing bubbles, open eyes underwater, front and back glide, swim 15 feet on front and 10 feet on back, swim on side, life jacket use. This class requires that children be attentive to the instructor and be able to follow directions.  

Level 2: Fundamental Aquatic Skills

This class builds upon the skills developed in Level 1.  Children will move to the larger lap pool and work in areas of the pool between 4 and 6 feet in depth.  Instructors will introduce the following skills: jumping into deep water, head first entry from sitting or kneeling, submerging and retrieving an object, bobbing, survival float for 30 seconds, treading water for 30 seconds, front crawl 15 yards, butterfly 15 feet, back crawl 15 yards, elementary rescues, and safe diving.  Students will also use the diving well to practice diving from the side.
