Learn to Swim Program

Genesis’ year-round Learn to Swim program is designed for children from beginner to advanced levels. Students progress through the levels at their own pace. Our swim lesson program will help set the stage for a lifetime of water safety by equipping students with the knowledge and skills needed to help them swim safely with confidence. Please refer to individual descriptions to see the skill levels that will be taught in each class.

Levels 1 - 6 | Ages 4 and Up
Level 1 | Introduction to Water Skills | 4:1 Student - Instructor Ratio

Students will focus on being comfortable in the water, learn the importance of water safety, and get introduced to front and back floats, front and back glides, and alternating arm and leg actions. Children at this level do not need any previous swimming experience.

Level 2 | Fundamental Aquatic Skills/Primary Skills | 4:1 Student - Instructor Ratio

Students will focus on completely submerging, floating, and gliding without support, swimming using alternating leg and arm action for five yards, water safety rules, and how to help others. Children at this level should be comfortable trying things on their own.

Level 3 | Stroke Development | 6:1 Student - Instructor Ratio

Students will focus on deepwater entry and safety, side breathing, treading water, introduction to freestyle, backstroke, butterfly kick, and body motion. Children at this level should be able to swim five yards on their own.

Level 4 | Stroke Improvement | 6:1 Student - Instructor Ratio

Students will focus on surface dives and underwater swimming, treading water using all kicks, freestyle, backstroke, butterfly, breaststroke, and diving safety. Children at this level should be able to swim 25 yards without stopping.

MASTERS SWIM

The Masters' Swim program is for experienced adult swimmers. The class is for those who desire to improve their fitness level, to train for a special event, or to have the support and motivation provided by exercising with a group.
 
We swim around 3,000 yards during the hour. Having basic swimming skills is a prerequisite, and we recommend that newcomers to the class be able to swim at least 500 yards (10 laps / 20 lengths) without stopping and be able to repeat 100s at a 2:00 minute interval.

Competitions for Masters Swimmers are offered!

WATER AEROBICS

Water aerobics supports the body and reduces the risk of injury. Exercise in the water can also help prevent overheating, as the water continually cools the body. Plus, you get a great workout while protecting your joints from the impact of dry-land aerobics.

Prenatal and postpartum members may join any water aerobics class. Please talk with the instructor for any specific modifications in your workout.

Contact Mallory at mallory.wilson@genesishealthclubs.com for more information and questions on pricing.
