Let us teach you
Velo-CT follows a proprietary lesson program, with a progression developed to teach children to swim the correct way, the first time. Swimmers progress through levels each with specific skills set to focus on proper body position, and include key safety components at every level. We also do not use flotation devices, to allow children to learn to swim with the power of their own bodies. For those children interested in moving on to the great sport of swimming, our lesson program includes specific terminology that prepares our swimmers to seamlessly transition into our REC or ZEUS swim teams
Our Group Lessons program is developed with busy families in mind. We offer all stage levels in the pool when lessons are offered. This allows children to maintain their time slot even as they progress to higher levels. It also allows families with multiple children to have all children in the pool at the same time!
We also offer Parent & Child classes during some weekday mornings and on weekends. These classes are for children ages 3 and younger and YOU get in the pool with your child.
A mid-level step is the Early Afternoon class for children ages 3-5. Classes are small and during a quieter time of day allowing your young swimmers to become comfortable in a group lesson setting without Mom or Dad in the pool.
4 principles for success
4 Swimmers per instructor at lower levels. 6 Swimmers per instructor at higher levels.
No flotation devices
In water for the entire duration of the class
Immediate advancement upon completion of a level. No waiting for the next session!
Tips for a great Swim Class
We want to see those beautiful faces! Tie longer hair back or use a swim cap to keep that hair out of your swimmer’s face, which makes blowing bubbles and breathing easier.
There is so much to see! Goggles improve visibility underwater and help protect eyes. Plus, they are so fun to wear!
Tummies are delicate. Avoid meals or heavy snacks in the time leading up to a swim lesson. All that activity and excitement can cause an upset tummy.
One last potty break. Arrive with enough time for that one last trip to the locker room “just in case” before heading to the Pool Deck.
Feel good. Have fun. Learn more! If your swimmer is sick or not feeling well, please consider scheduling a make-up. Your swimmer will get so much more from a class when feeling 100%
