Swim Lessons for New Swimmers 3 Years Old and Over

The proven I CAN SAVE MYSELF learn-to-swim method consists of 3 clear goals for new swimmers with 7 levels to accomplish them. On average, students 3 years old and older accomplish our 3 goals in 10 (30 min) private swim lessons. Lessons at our swim school may be taken 1-5x a week, depending on how fast of a course you wish to take. Swim lessons are private, but you can share with a friend/sibling and split the cost. Shared lessons are not recommended for resistant students. If any students in a shared lesson are 4 years old or younger, swim lessons are split 15 minutes per child. Only 2 students may share a lesson per 30 minute lesson.  

3 Goals for New Swimmers:

  •  Survival Stroke with a Minimum of 3 Independent-Reliable   Breaths
  •  Back-Float with Kicks
  •  How to SAVE YOURSELF if you fall into the pool.
Swim Lesson

Gates and locks WILL BE LEFT OPEN, so we teach students how to SAVE THEMSELVES if they fall in the pool. The last lesson, we give all our students the I CAN SAVE MYSELF test. Students jump in the pool fully clothed to demonstrate they can SAVE THEMSELVES if they fell into a pool. Arrive to your last lesson with heavy clothing over the student's swim suit.

Parents find great relief knowing their child will be able to get out of the pool fast if they were to fall in, even while wearing heavy clothes. That's one of the reasons why we are your best choice for swim lessons. Check out our Facebook and Instagram for videos of our success. Bullfrog Swim School works and we have the videos to prove it! 

Swim Lesson for Under 2

Swim Lesson for 2 Years and Younger

Swim Lessons for Infant Walkers to  2 Years Old

The I CAN SAVE MYSELF learn to swim method has modified expectations for students 2 and under (infants must be able to walk 20 feet to be able to enroll in swim lessons). Swim lessons for walking infants and 2-year-olds still work on achieving our 3 Goals for new swimmers using the 7 Levels of Progression, but parents need to be realistic on expectations for such young swimmers. For best results, we DO NOT offer parent-and-me options. Our studies show young students achieve greater success when parents stay out of sight than those students who parents are in the pool. Lessons are taken 1-5 times a week, depending on how accelerated of a course you wish to take. You may share lessons with a friend and split the cost. Shared lessons for this age are split 15 minutes per student.  

Basic Stroke Introduction

Once a student accomplishes our 3 goals for new swimmers, they have the option to enroll in another set of lessons to prepare them for the swim team. Basic Stroke Introduction is offered to students 3 years old to adults.

Goals for Basic Stroke Introduction 

  •  Freestyle w/Side Breath
  •  Backstroke
  •  Breast Stroke
  •  Butterfly
  •  Flip Turns
  •  Treading Water

Adult New Swimmers

It's never too late to learn how to swim. We teach hundreds of adults each year! Adults first learn how to swim the survival stroke across the length of the pool. If they have remaining lessons, they may learn the four basic strokes. Lessons are private, but adult swim students may share with a friend for no extra charge. We recommend 10 (30 minute) lessons for adults. Adult lessons are only offered at our facility, not home lessons, for safety reasons. 

________________________________________________________________________  Approach to Hesitant and Resistant Students

We offer a detailed and thoughtful approach to swim instruction, considering both the emotional well-being of the students and the importance of acquiring vital swimming skills. 

  1. Practice Submerging Before Lessons: Encourage students to practice breath control in the bathtub by putting their faces underwater and holding their breath and/or blowing bubbles. Offer instant rewards like marshmallows or MnMs to reinforce the behavior after each time they submerge their own head underwater.
  2. Submersion in First Lesson: All new swimmers are submerged during the first lesson to acclimatize them to being underwater.
  3. Second Lessons: The second lesson, students usually show the most hesistation and tears. This is normal and expected.  On average, resistant students become familiar with the routine and instructor by the end of the third lesson. For best results, please be out of site so your child does not spend the whole lessons calling out for you. It is apporpriate to sit pool side once your child does not have tears during lessons.
  4. Instructor Handoff: If a student is resistant to getting into the pool, parents are to hand them directly to the instructor in the water. This is a signal to your child that you trust the instrucor.
  5. Finish the Full 30 Minute Lesson: For best results, do not end lessons early. We do not want students to believe that fussing will result in the lessons ending early.  
  6. Emotional Support: We acknowledge the emotional difficulty for parents but emphasize the importance of swim lessons is for the safety of your young child. Most tears are not due to fear of water but rather being unfamiliar with the instructor and the routine. By continuing the lessons, your child will start to bond to their instructor and get familiarized with the routine. Tears are very common during the first few lessons.
  7. Feedback and Progress: Contact the swim office after the fourth lesson if there are issues or lack of progress.
  8. Parental Involvement: For resistant students, stay out of sight during the first few lessons to prevent increased anxiety. Avoid discussing swimming lessons between sessions until the child starts enjoying them.
  9. Timely Arrival: Arrive only a few minutes early to your lesson to prevent anxiety from watching other students who may be struggling. Also, do not arrive late to prevent your child from feeling anxious and rushed.
  10. Avoid Over-Practicing: Avoid practicing swimming between lessons until the child starts enjoying it. While at home, allow them to enjoy the water on their own terms.

By following these guidelines, parents and instructors can create a positive learning environment where students can develop essential swimming skills with confidence and enjoyment.
