Swim Lessons

Spring is finally here! We are excited about the change in weather, and to celebrate this shift to the great outdoors, we are highlighting our Aquatics Department for the month of April! To that end, we are running a few extra events and promotions:

Free Trials for Swim Lesson Families: if you sign your kids up for swim lessons this month, grab a free week trial pass from the front desk! BAC is a great place for families who like to stay fit together – we have everything from Basketball to Racquetball to classes and kid-friendly programs.

Introducing: Angelfish II: We have had quite a few students come into the program that is in a strange, in-between levels kind of place. They are too independent in the water for a full-fledged Angelfish class, but may not be cognitively ready to listen and learn for a full 30 minutes independently with an instructor. Angelfish II is designed for those kids between the ages of 2 – 3 who fall into this category!

  • Students will start in the water with a parent for the first few lessons, and as they become more comfortable with the instructors, they will transition into spending more time with their teacher and less time with their parent. This gives us an opportunity to ease the transition between being with a parent and without. For example, a student who is particularly comfortable in the pool may only spend 2 or 3 lessons with the parent in the water the whole time, and then on 4th lesson, the parent would get out of the water after 20 minutes. If they’re still comfortable, on the 5th lesson, the parent may leave after 15 minutes, etc. Of course, this is a moving scale and will be customized to the comfort of your child.
  • We are running this class in the mornings, from 11:30-12:00! As our instructors become trained for this course, we will offer it in the evening as well.
  • Because of the introduction of this level, all students between the age of 2-3 must sign up for an Angelfish class, either I or II. We can no longer make an exception for students under the age of 3 to be in a Beluga class. This is for their safety! If you have any questions about this, please reach out via email or talk to me during lessons. I am happy to make recommendations for individual students.

Finally, we are offering a makeup lesson day next week! Many of you will be out of town, and therefore still eligible for a credit for any missed classes, but if you would like to take advantage of this opportunity, we will run a makeup day on Thursday (4/4). I’ll release a lesson schedule for the exact classes for the makeup day this week, so stay tuned on updates there.
