Help your children maintain the water safety and skills they learned in swimming this summer all year long with the Lenny Krayzelburg Swim Academy offered at The J.
Infants all the way up to adults are welcome to take lessons Monday through Thursdays from 3-7 p.m. and on Sunday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Participants can take part in group or one-on-one lessons. The Swim Academy and The J provide an environment where swimming is a respected, healthy, fun and a safe place for your children to nail down their swimming skills and learn to be safe in the water.
Aquatics Director, Johnny Kimberlin said that swim lessons are very important, especially at a young age.
“Swimming is a wonderful life skill that provides many benefits to all that learn. Our program provides great structure and teachers who will encourage and push the children to learn this important safety skill,” Kimberlin said. “Enabling your kids to learn these skills at a young age will ensure that they stick with them throughout their entire life,” Kimberlin said.
Using the SwimRight Method, swim instructors use seven levels of learning to inspire the children to recognize their achievements and move up to the next level. Whether your child is a Splasher, Floater, Kicker, Streamliner, Freestyler, Glider or Flyer, each instructor will work with the swimmers, helping them reach their next level goals.
All children get their own swim book to help them keep up with their progress, and they receive ribbons and color-coded swim caps for each level.
At the completion of level 2 and 3 (Floaters and Kickers), the children get the opportunity to put their learning to the test and must pass a survival test. This is to help show parents and the children that they can survive in the water in a real-life situation.
“Swimming is a great skill that the children will be able to physically do forever,” Kimberlin said.
So what are you waiting for? Don’t let the swimming, learning and fun stop! Enroll your child today. The Swim Academy is accepting children as young as two months. To reserve your spot, contact The J at 502-459-0660.
