Think your child is ready for a little more swimming?

The Mini Ducks is an advanced swim lesson for children ages 5+ who are comfortable (floating) in the water but have not mastered arm strokes and breathing in freestyle or backstroke arms and kicking. In addition these swimmers need to be water safe and able to use a kickboard.

The goal of these lessons is to build on learning and listening skills, increase comfort in the water, let children explore movement, and put them on a path to joining the swim team. Teaching Fundamental Body Position, back stroke arms and kicking, and rhythmic freestyle side breathing are the target goals of the Mini Ducks.

Visit the Mini Ducks Landing Page for detailed information.
