Survival Swim Lessons

Whether you’re equipping your child with important aquatic survival skills, or looking for an extracurricular activity your kids can enjoy during school break, we look forward to seeing you and your little ones here at SwimKids of Georgia.

“Swimkids has taught both of my children to swim by two years old.

We live on the lake and have a pool and it means the world to us that our children can enjoy the water. Not only do our children swim, they swim well. We have been there since my oldest was 8 months old and now we go once a week to maintain their form and learn new strokes. We believe in the program and love to see our children learning.”

Survival Swim Programs

Ages 4-10 Months

Little Splashers

This is an introductory water experience for infants 4 to 10 months. Here, caregiver and baby will spend 30 minutes splashing, bonding, and making new friends.

The instructor will teach moms/dads/caregivers how to introduce submersion, breath control, the back float, and short distance propulsion. This program is a precursor to Swim~Float~Swim.

Your baby is now comfortable in the water and with the instructor and is ready to swim!

This class is limited to 6 babies + caregiver.

Ages 1 – 4

Swim〜Float〜Survive:

This program focuses on gently introducing children to water with short repetitive lessons, building trust with the instructor and slowly teaching them to reactively roll onto their back and float, flip back on to their stomachs and swim to exit the water.

By breaking down such a big task into small pieces, retention is higher, and it has proven to be a very successful method ensuring your child learns to swim~float~swim in just a few weeks. While each child learns at an individual pace, most finish in about 6 weeks.

Private swim lessons are scheduled according to your family’s needs and our instructors’ availability, by our experienced front desk staff. Once our personalized programs are explained to you and all your questions are answered we will find the perfect instructor and time slot for you.

Ages 4+

Youth Survival

The goal of this class is to teach older non-swimming children aquatic survival, which is the core of all our swimming programs and not taught in a traditional swim school setting. We teach the swim-float-swim progression that is taught to our younger students.

Our older swimmers usually grasp the swim-float-swim concept very quickly. We then incorporate breath control and proper kicking into the lesson before moving them onto our stroke school.

Private swim lessons are scheduled according to your family’s needs and our instructors’ availability, by our experienced front desk staff. Once our personalized programs are explained to you and all your questions are answered we will find the perfect instructor and time slot for you.

Special Needs Program

Let’s Adapt

Our program is intended to teach children and adults of all ages and abilities the life-saving skills of swim-float-survive. Working with children who have special needs takes an instructor who understands that each child learns differently, and it may take a different approach for those within the spectrum or with other physical or emotional needs.

Our instructors have been trained in traditional and non-traditional methods to ensure your children’s success and enjoyment in the water.

We provide a secure, safe, reassuring, and inclusive environment for all of our children. Once your children can pass our test, we meld them into our Fun Group or Stroke School Program, giving them a sense of empowerment as well as that of ‘fitting in’.

After Survival Swim Programs

11 Months  to 2.6 Years

Aquababies

This is a parent-assisted program recommended for children 11 months to 2.6 years old. Classes take place once per week for 30 minutes and are parent assisted.

Our AquaBabies classes are for 11 months to 2.5 year old swimmers and their parents. This is our platform for teaching our parents to play in the water the correct way with their little swimmers. This program offers swimming instruction that promotes water safety and fun.

2.6 to 4 years

Fun Groups

The “Fun” has begun groups, for skilled swimmers – AFTER mastering, swim~float~survive, your children are now ready to have some fun! With a maximum of 4 children, age and skill-appropriate group lessons are essential for continuing the confidence and skill growth of your swimmers. This program is recommended for children age 2.5 to 4 years, once or twice per week, for 30 minutes.

These group swim lessons offer a fun and nurturing learning environment that is suitable for new swimmers. In FUN groups, which are no longer parent assisted, children use their newly learned independent swimming skills to discover how much fun water-related activities can be, while still learning new skills to add to their swimming repertoire. Part of the continued learning experience includes breath control, proper kicking, proper body alignment, and introduction to basic swim strokes.

4+ Years

Transition

By this stage, your children are much more comfortable in the water and are on their way to learning swimming movement, floating, and breath control.

Transition classes are designed for children 4 years and older. Here, they begin to learn proper breathing, kicking, and arm movement. During the Transition classes, students start swimming further distances for longer periods of time; this is the step before our Stroke School and bridges between the Private Lessons or Fun Groups to the stroke school.

4yrs & Older

Stroke School

This program caters to children 4 years and older. Classes are 45 minutes in length, 2 to 3 days a week.

Swimmers begin to develop proper body posture, breath control, kicks, and front and back streamline. Once a student has mastered these skills, they proceed to stroke development. Through a series of fun drills, we break down all four competitive strokes into individual moves that are more easily learned, and then combine the individual moves together to more efficiently and effectively develop the proper stroke(s).

4 Different Levels of Stroke School

1.Stroke n Float

  • Proper Breath Control
  • Proper Freestyle/Backstroke Kicking
