Thanks for checking with Adventure Swim!
The class runs for 5 days, Monday through Friday. We will do 6 weeks of group classes.
Mr. Ed designed the Fast and Fun Swim System to teach children how to swim quickly and correctly. Many swim schools design their program so that the family comes a few times a week for several weeks or months. Our system is set up to learn to swim as soon as possible, then refine the skills to get better and better.
Many families will sign up for an one class, then an additional week if their child is progressing well and they want to continue with us. Others parents feel they have a good grasp on the basics that Mr. Ed teaches them on how to get their baby comfortable with water, so that they can continue to nurture that on their own, until the child is developmentally ready to learn actual swim strokes. Many of our students will come in for a refresher lesson at the start of each season, just to get off on the right foot and to make sure they aren't picking up bad habits that will effect their overall swimming if not corrected.
The group class is $129 and there can be up to 10 Families in the pool. Once the 6 weeks of group classes are over, we offer Private Lessons for the remainder of the summer.
A private lesson is the same price for a single group lesson- $129. Mr. Ed can teach you as much in a single private lesson as he can in several group lessons - working on only the skills that your child needs to work on. But even in the group classes, he divides the class time into equal parts of teaching the group of parents/children (or other adult) and working with each family one on one. We will offer one week of private lessons as soon as we open in May 8th - the week before Group classes start. This is a good time to come for assessment on which group class (if any) your child is most suited for. Some children do much better in group class if they already know and trust Mr. Ed from even a single private lesson.
Although we do offer a Group Session that is weekly on Saturdays for 5 weeks, we feel Beginners, in particular, do well with lessons being daily for 5 days rather than spread out. They tend not to pick up incorrect habits between lessons, and they seem to progress quicker. Therefore, most of our swimmers can learn to swim very well in a few weeks of classes. They can get the basic grasp of it in a week, then refine and grow stronger with additional weeks. We encourage parents to watch, listen, and continue to encourage the techniques that we apply because they work!
