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 with five sessions.  Three sessions are offered in the spring and two sessions are offered in the fall.  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 has a minimum depth of 3 feet.  Any child who is not a proficient swimmer and cannot stand in the pool by themselves will need an adult to accompany them into the pool.   The pool is located on 217 Dogwood 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.  *Sustainable swim pants are required for all children who are not yet potty trained.  Click Here for the examples.  We do have some on site for purchase for $10.00* 

Preschool Fundamentals (3-5 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 pool has a minimum depth of 3 feet in this class.  Parents must enter the water with their children if they cannot swim or touch in the pool.  *Sustainable swim pants are required for all children who are not yet potty trained.  Click Here for the examples.  We do have some on site for purchase for $10.00*  

Level 1- Introduction to Water Skills (6 +)

Level 1 encourages 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 3 feet.  Our goal is help children become independent in the water but If your child needs more support in the learning process we will accommodate those needs to help create the best learning atmosphere.  We want all children safe in and around the water.  Please communicate with the instructor or program director prior to the start of the class to work through those accommodations with a plan.  During this class the new skills 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.  If your child will be independent in the pool, they should be attentive to the instructor, be able to follow directions, and understand they should be safe in and around the water at all times.  

Level 2: Fundamental Aquatic Skills (6+)

This class builds upon the skills developed in Level 1.  Children will 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.  Our goal is help children become independent in the water but If your child needs more support in the learning process we will accommodate those needs to help create the best learning atmosphere.  We want all children safe in and around the water.  Please communicate with the instructor or program director prior to the start of the class to work through those accommodations with a plan.  If your child will be independent in the pool, they should be attentive to the instructor, be able to follow directions, and understand they should be safe in and around the water at all times.
