DeMont Family Swim School Programs
Swim Programs For All Ages
Join us in our year round commitment to fitness, safety and swimming.
Summer is wild and fun. Weekly lessons give the hours of summer swimming some structure and motivation to practice better skills.
Fall swimming helps our students maintain their skills and confidence as the routine of the school year returns. Build on it, work on it and let them learn skills that will make their lifetime water experiences all the more comfortable and rewarding.
Winter lessons are great! Children who attend swimming lessons once per week all year long become much calmer and more efficient in the water. They develop a “feel” for the water that helps them become more confident swimmers. Once they have this confidence then they can improve their strokes and technique.
Children learn best through a routine that is familiar and predictable. We will learn a routine and build new skills into each lesson. Our goal is for each student to become comfortable, safe swimmers who understand buoyancy and balance in the water.
30-minute classes ages 2 months-36 months (3 years).
6 babies (with adults) per class maximum.
Little Froggy Classes (Baby & Me)
The Little Froggy classes offer social opportunities, unrestricted physical activity and exercises to aid in becoming comfortable in water in preparation for continued swim skill building through the years. Each child has an adult (parent or other) with him/her at all times. This class incudes an introduction to water safety and primary water skills; including back floats, submersions, rollover breathing and water play in a fun, family friendly environment.
We separate the babies into four levels:
Baby Splash: 2-5 month olds (FREE 20 minute, 1 time per week classes)
Little Froggy 1: 6-18 month olds
Little Froggy 2: 18-36 month olds
Little Froggy Advanced: 18-36 month olds (teacher recommendation required)
Cloth reusable swim diapers are REQUIRED for all students under the age of 3, even those who are potty trained.
30-minute classes, ages 30 to 36 months
2 students per class maximum.
Semi-private classes, which cost a bit more, give children the extra attention they need at this age and ease the transition from swimming with a parent to swimming with an instructor.
We separate semi-private classes into two levels:
Blowfish: Introduction to the basic skills necessary for swimming. We work on rollover breathing, backfloats, independence in the water, and great attitudes.
Clownfish: Must be able to rollover and catch a breath unassisted. We focus on calm, comfortable swimmers who are independent on their stomachs and their backs.
For our little fish 3 years and younger, we are all about safety, comfort, balance, increased strength, buoyancy and fun! We are not trying to create backstrokers and freestylers just yet!
