Attention! You must register your child for lessons by the 25th of the month preceding the start date of the class. For example, to participate in April swim lessons, you must register by March 25th.
Occasionally, due to low registration numbers, class levels may be combined to ensure that classes are still held. For example, a Level 1 and Level 2 class may be combined. However, a Level 1 and a Level 4 class would not be combined.
The Aspen Recreation Center reserves the right to cancel or modify classes due to insufficient registration. There must be a minimum of 2 students registered for the class by the registration deadline in order to hold the class. A full refund will be issued if a program is cancelled.
If you are unsure what class your child should participate in, please see the class descriptions below. We are also able to give a brief swim evaluation prior to the start of the class to determine your child's ability level.
Learn to Swim Class Descriptions and Level Information:
Parent Tot class is for children ages 6 months to 3 years. They will learn to be comfortable performing basic movement in the water through play with their parents.
Preschool-Level 1class is for children 3 years of age. They will learn to be safe in the water and develop beginner swim skills in a fun environment with their instructor.
Preschool-Level 2 class is for children 4-5 years old. This class helps children improve upon their beginner swim skills and prepare to advance to our level swim program.
Levels 1-4 provide a comprehensive learn-to-swim program for ages 5 and up:
Level 1 class is designed to teach children how to enjoy the water safely. Students will learn basic skills such as front and back floats, kicking, glides, and going underwater with the assistance of an instructor.
Level 2 class focuses on developing the fundamental skills of swimming that will lead to independence in the water. Students will learn to float, glide, and kick without the assistance of an instructor. They will also begin to use their arms and legs in a consistent manner, focusing on using the correct motions in the water.
Level 3 class centers on stroke readiness. Students will begin front and back crawl, elementary backstroke, and diving. They will also learn life saving swim techniques such as treading water and survival floating.
Level 4 class helps students improve their swimming strokes. Students will become efficient at rotary breathing (breathing to the side) during the front crawl. They will also continue to learn breaststroke and develop diving skills. Students will practice distance swimming starting with 25 yards of each stroke.
Parents are welcome to observe swim lessons from the deck on the first and last days of each session. All other times, parents may only observe from the grassy area or the lobby.
