SwimSmart is different than traditional swim lessons. The number one goal of SwimSmart is to increase participant safety and comfort in water and the secondary goal is to teach swimming strokes and techniques. From parent/tot through adult lessons, participants learn ways to be safe in various bodies of water. They first learn how to be safe and save themselves before they perfect swimming strokes and techniques. SwimSmart students progress through classes based on demonstrable skills. Parents will receive a written progress report at the conclusion of each class.
