FREE INTRODUCTORY OFFER

Free* Baby Splash Class (4 weeks – 6 months)

The introduction to water is an important step in your baby’s journey to a lifelong love of the water. In this calm and quiet class, our instructors share their experience working with babies to provide you with tips on how to develop comfort and confidence in the water with your little ones.

Research and Studies have shown baby swimmers under the age of five develop better balance, movement and grasping techniques and are more advanced in their cognitive and physical development than their non-swimming peers (Jorgensen, Grootenboer and Funnell, 2011 and Sigmundsson and Hopkins, 2010). Swim lessons also help babies develop social confidence, build stronger muscles, and just have tons of fun!

Classes meet 1 time a week. There will be multiple class options per week.
