The BWD Swim School program creates an environment that will elicit learning-to-swim in a progressive, but child-oriented manner. The speed of mastering any skill depends on many factors, including, but not limited to age, motor development, natural ability, practice time, motivation, focus, and parental support.
Blue Water Divers Swim School's goal is to meet the high standards you expect out of a swim school. We pledge to make your child safer in and around the water by teaching them how to swim at their own pace and to encourage them to try new things during class but to never force them to do anything. We like to keep class sizes small, to communicate with our parents about the progress of their children and to set goals for them to work on during class and at home.
Our educators are hand-picked, mature adults. Many have experience coaching swim teams and teaching learn-to-swim programs. They truly care not only about the quality of their teaching, but more importantly, prioritizing the happiness and well-being of their students throughout the learning process.
Your child will be placed in a class based on his or her own ability. Our curriculum is progressive-based with goals in mind. As our students meet these goals, new skills will be introduced during their session, therefore continuing the learning process. The children will "move up the ladder" throughout the session as it is seen necessary.
