Intro To Swim: These lessons are for our tiniest swimmers. The goal of these lessons is to get your child comfortable in the water. We will practice skills such as putting our faces in the water, kicking while holding the wall, and blowing bubbles underwater. A guardian should be prepared to get into the water with their swimmer, if necessary. Swimmers should come prepared with goggles. Lessons will take place between 9:00 – 9:30 am.
Level 1: These lessons are geared towards the child who is ready to learn to be independent in the water. Children will practice swimming with and without a kick board. Children at this level should be comfortable putting their faces in the water and should be ready to take a lesson without their guardian in the water with them. Swimmers should come prepared with goggles. Lessons will take place between 9:30 – 10:00 am.
Level 2: These lessons are geared towards the child who can already swim and is ready to learn the mechanics of swim strokes. We will mainly work on freestyle and backstroke, but may touch on breast stroke, as well. Swimmers should come prepared with goggles. Lessons will take place between 9:00 – 9:30 am.
Level 3: These lessons are for our advanced swimmers. Students at this level are required to pass their deep end test prior to the beginning of lessons. We will work on all strokes, but will emphasize breast stroke and butterfly. We will also practice diving. Swimmers should come prepared with goggles. Lessons will take place between 9:30 – 10:00 am.
Private lessons are available at Somerset Hills Swim Club with any of our swim coaches and lifeguards. They should be arranged through the coaches and lifeguards directly at A mutually agreed-upon time and rate.
