We are excited to be able to now offer modified swim lessons at the Southbury Town Pool. While adhering to all guidelines, beginning Monday July 20th, we will offer two lesson options. Lessons will be run from 10:30 am to 11:00 am on the days indicated. Lessons will run the week of July 20th through the week of August 3rd.
Both lesson groups will be run with the lifeguard instructor on deck providing instruction. At no time will the guards be allowed in the water to assist.
Lessons Groups are as follows:
PARENT & TOT LESSONS - Ages 3 mo.- 5 yrs
Tuesdays & Thursday, 6 lessons, $60 - click to register
This is an introduction to water where the parent/guardian is in the water with the child, providing hands-on instructions. An instructor on deck will lead the group in activities with children enjoying splashing, floating, kicking, songs and games with their parent. The goal is to acclimate our youngest pre-swimmers to an aquatic environment at an early age so they are comfortable, happy and confident to learn the basic swimming skills without a parent. Any children who are not potty-trained MUST wear a swimming diaper AND a bathing suit OR plastic pants.
Parent/guardians in the Parent/Tot lesson will be required to be in the water with their swimmer and will be expected to follow the instruction of the on-deck instructor in order to provide the lesson.
LEVEL 5 LESSONS: STROKE DEVELOPMENT - Ages 6 - 10
Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays, 9 lessons, $90 - click to register
Young swimmers who are able to swim a length of the Town Pool without stopping are invited to take part in this lesson. Swimmers will receive instruction to fine tune their stroke technique in freestyle and backstroke; they will be introduced to butterfly and breaststroke. Swimmers will continue to build confidence and endurance in the water by increasing the distance they swim during lessons.
