The BIG Difference
Just a few reminders before you arrive at the pool!

- Each swimmer should come ready to swim, dressed in their swimsuit and wrapped in a towel. Please rinse off and go to the bathroom before arriving at the pool. Locker rooms will not be available for changing, with the exception of Parent-Tot where necessary and in emergency situations. During colder weather, on-deck changing stations will be available for a quick, 1-minute change into warmer clothing. Children and parents/guardians will be allowed into the pool once the previous lesson has cleared out and staff have cleaned.

- Classes will end 5 minutes early to allow for cleaning.

- Each swimmer will provide their own goggles. Goggles are available for purchase at the front desk. We will have sanitized backup goggles available to use in a pinch.

- 1 parent/guardian allowed per family, with the exception of Parent-Tot where you may have 2 if necessary. If you have back-to-back lessons, you may bring both children in. As long as we are under capacity, siblings may come inside provided they sit on the same chair as their parent/guardian.

- While in the parking lot and building, maintain a 6í social distance from others.

- Everyone ages 2 and up not swimming in the pool is required to wear a face covering of some sort - face mask, face shield, bandanna, etc while in the facility. Reusable, reversible face masks sewn by Mr. Billís wife are available for purchase. Disposable face masks are available as needed.

- Swim team swimmers will rotate through dryland exercises and swimming throughout the practice to allow for social distancing. Please fill up your labeled water bottle before arriving to limit use of the water fountain. Parents will not be allowed on deck during swim team as the deck will be used for dryland workouts. Chairs will be provided outside


While some things might be different, hereís what will remain the same:
 We will still have the best professional swim instructors whose passion is teaching children to swim
 We will still have the same proven instruction methods, teaching the 4 competitive strokes
 We will still continue to keep our pool clean with chlorine, UV light filtration, and numerous chemical checks throughout the day
 We will still have fun!

Here are the changes you will notice:

For years the basic standard of teaching swimming answered only to the system designed and executed by the Red Cross. However, the top-tier swimming that is found at the competitive levels has evolved well beyond what this system has to offer its students. The cutting-edge fluid mechanics of the strokes that are so readily evident in the Olympic competitions are lost upon this system of teaching. The techniques that the Olympians use, however, are every bit as applicable and useful to a two-year old as they are to a top level athlete, and as a benefit, the more a child understands about how to move efficiently in the water the safer he or she is. Bearing these things in mind, the answer becomes clear: change the system of instruction to reflect the latest understanding of what is the most efficient way to swim.

Founded by former athletes and coaches, Little Strokes has effectively done this with a unique progression system developed from years of teaching, combined with Little Strokes open secret: the most experienced and qualified instructors in the business. Being able to boast teachers who are themselves; athletes, coaches, and teachers, means that the instructors not only have the tools to teach the science of swimming, but the fundamental understanding to realize its potential in every child.
