PacPlex offers a diverse swim program. We have instructions by our professional licensed staff to teach from beginners to advance. Scheduled during the course of the year are the following programs.
It’s never too early to get your child/ children into swimming. Parent and Child classes incorporate cooperation and trust between both participants and creates a fun environment where games and songs help children become more comfortable in the water.
Our Preschool-age swim classes help orient students to the aquatic environment and help them acquire rudimentary levels of basic aquatic skills. Children gain water confidence, front and back float, paddle with and then without personal flotation devices.
Preschool 1: Full assistance in the lesson, students will be partaking in their first class independent of parental interaction. There will be a focus on safety in both entering and exiting the pools, recognizing the aquatics staff, and completing tasks to get children more comfortable with the water.
Preschool 2: Reiteration of some of the skills from Preschool 1, students are more accustomed to the water and will begin focusing on more fine motor skills, coordination, and practicing swim skills with minimal assistance.
Preschool 3: The final class for the Preschool program, the students will prepare for their transition into the Learn to swim program. Upon graduation from the Preschool program learn to swim Level 1 will go over more of the basics, including breathing, kicking, and floating with full independence.
