We need to know your childs age, ability and what size class you want. You can choose M W or TTh classes and a general block of time you want the class. We will then match you up with students of the same criteria. You may not get an exact time as students in the session first get priority of time.

Private lessons can be more flexible with the scheduling as long as there is availability.

You can choose the session, the number of students in the class, the instructor upon availability, choose between M W or TTH classes and you can choose a general block of time. Groups of 4 or more are pre scheduled. TBA

Holidays: Please check with your instructor if class will be held on holidays. You can arrange with the instructor to continue or reschedule a different time.

Class Size

Depends on age and level of students. If you choose private scheduling or make your own group, You can choose the class size and times. It is best to keep the class size as small as you can afford for optimal learning. Often times it will cost more in the long run if there are too many kids in the class for your childs ability level.

Learning to swimm at Aloha Capo Beach Swimming SchoolS

   

 

Water Safety & Survival

(Age 8 months to 3 Years. Non Swimmers )
image

We employ a gentle technique for the little ones.We will teach them water safety skills that will help them survive in an emergency situation. We will teach them to hold their breath for up to 20 seconds so they can to paddle and kick to the side of the pool and reach up and grab an edge, ladder or step to get out. We will teach them to float and roll on their backs if they cannot paddle and kick to the side of the pool.  The objective is to get their mouth in the air to be able to take a breath. We understand the child may feel uncomfortable at times as some skills are more difficult to master but we will move at a pace that is not forceful or detrimental to their learning.

What to expect:  Each child is different and learning varies from child to child but a general rule is that above the age of 2 a child will learn these water safety skills in 3 to 4 sessions.  Under the age of 2 they will learn these skills in 4-5 months.   If your child is outside this time scale, do not worry, eventually it will come.

Non Swimmer

(Age 3 and Up) The older non-swimmer fall into 2 catagories. The unlearned and the fearful
image

Catagory 1: Those that just have not learned the skill of swimming:  Will be taught basic water safety and survival skills in Level 1 and begin to learn basic stroke mechanics to propel themselves through the water. If they can comfortably submerge their heads underwater they will learn basic swim skills quickly

What to expect:  1 session is usually enough time to move them to the level 3 beginners to begin to learn proper stroke mechanics and safty skills.

 

Catagory 2. Those students that have anxity or fear about water or swimming.  We will work through the issue of fear and slowly implement skills that can be accomplished with success.  We will move at a comfortable pace so learning is optimal, However, they will need to step out of their comfort level on occassion or they will not progress.

What to expect: Unless there is significant fear to overcome, usually 2 sessions is enough to move them to the level 3 beginners to begin to learn proper stroke mechanics.

Beginners

(Age 3.5 and Up)
image

At this level the student already knows how to maneuver short distances without fear with their head submerged. But may not always get back safely, thus they must be monitored at all times.

This level will review water safety survival skills,  learn basic stroke mechanics for the freestyle (crawl stroke), breaststroke and 2 types of backstroke. Breathing techniques will be introduced at this level.  They will also begin mild conditioning and be introduced to the deep end of the pool for safe jumping and diving. 

What to expect: Usually 2-3 sessions is enough to move to the level 4 Advanced beginners.

Advanced Beginners

(Age 4 and Up)
image

At this level the student can swim independently across the pool or a greater distance to get to the side or take a breath. They will begin to learn proper stroke mechanics for Freestyle, breaststroke and backstroke and introduced to the butterfly stroke.   They will be taught correct breathing technique and begin conditioning with lap swimming.  The will also be introduced to treading water and diving 

What to expect: Depending on the childs age, all 4 strokes can be learned in a couple of sessions. But strength and efficiency are usually age related. It is possible for 5 and 6 year olds to move to an intermediate class in a 3-4 sessions. 

Intermediate

(Age 7 and Up)
image

At this level student know all 4 competitive strokes with proper breathing form.   They can tread water and dive.

They will be taught stroke refinement, and more advanced conditioning is required. Ocean safety skills and wave simulation swims will be practiced.  They will be trained to pass the Jr Lifeguard test: tread water for at least 5 minutes.  100 yrs swim under 2 minutes or 2:30 depending on what Jr Guard program they enroll in. We will work on holding the breath while swimming under water for 10 yards.   They will also be taught proper starts, turns and finishes needed for swim competition if they decide to join a swim team.

What to expect: approximately 2-4 sessions to pass the test above the age of 8 or 2-4 sessions to be able to join a swim team or move to the Advanced classes

Advanced

(Age 9 and Up)
image

At this level the students have mastered all 4 competitive strokes, can tread 5 minutes, can dive, do flip turns and can pass the Jr guard test or passed requirements to be on a team but not interested in competition. This class is for those who want to keep conditioning and have a social outlet or meet Physical education requirements. These students will be taught Lifeguard techniques if every they want a job as lifeguards or swim instructors.

What to expect: On going for life. Great cross training activity for other sports
