About Our Swim Kids Program (5-13 years old)

The 5-level Swim Kids program is designed for children from 5 to 13 years old. The program is a unique mix of swimming, water safety, and fun. Swimmers receive progress reports after each session adding them to their achievements. The Swim Kids program starts with an introduction to strokes and survival skills, gradually increasing the distance and stroke efficiency.
