EFFECTIVELY IMMEDIATELY; The Facebook groups have been removed as a means of communication. Moving forward we will us the CREW app as a way to communicate as a business. If you have not yet installed the app or would like more information about it please visit https://www.crewapp.com
As our state begins to reopen, relax some restrictions and capacity limits, we are now able to expand some of our programs and offerings. As we begin to adjust to our new capacity allowance, you may see the addition of new students in classes. As always, the safety of our swimmers, families, and staff are our biggest priority and we will continue to follow all health and safety protocols and meet every guideline set by the state.While these capacity adjustments allow for more students to take part in swim lessons, social distancing guidelines will continue to be enforced throughout our facility, especially in our lobby. We continue to request only one caregiver per family attend lessons at this time. We have added some additional standing room only locations to help increase the number of parents who may watch, but once those spots are filled, we will require any additional families to wait outside.

Hello and Welcome to Week 12 of our Spring Session!
My name is ____________ and I will be your deck supervisor. This week we will be working on a variety of skills.
In SwimStars Transitional our instructors are guiding students using simple directions to create a safe and structured learning environment. Our goal is to create awesome listeners that follow the directions of the instructor throughout each class.
In SwimStars Prep and Level 1 we are working on our breath control, buoyancy, and balance by teaching our students to float on their bellies independently. This skill helps our students build their confidence and comfort while floating in the water with their face submerged.
In Level 2 we are working on buoyancy, balance and movement through independent gliding and kicking on the back. Moving through the water using only legs for kicking promotes stability, improved body position and propulsion.
In Level 3 we are expanding the distances of the roll over and pop up skills learned in level 2. The roll over skills reinforces safety by allowing students to roll on their backs if they become tired while swimming longer distances and the pop up skill helps student perfect rhythmic breathing over longer distances.
In Level 4 we are introducing the dolphin kick by encouraging students to swim with their legs together and kick moving their body in a wavelike motion. This skill helps improve body proper body position and movement for the Butterfly stroke taught in swim team prep.
In Swim Team Prep we will be focusing on Breaststroke.
Reminder; We are OPEN for ALL REGULAR CLASSES During April School Vacation!
ENROLLMENT IS NOW available in your Parent Portal for our Summer Session and the Fall Session begins immediately after on August 22nd. We will be offering a chance for currently enrolled Little Flippers families Save a Spot in the Fall Session beginning April 20th!
ADDITIONAL ANNOUNCEMENT FOR WINCHESTER ONLY: We ask that all customers please park in the YELLOW lined spots only. They do extend all the way around the building onto the other side of the pool. The white lined spots are for our neighbors across the street.
Once again, my name is ______________ and I am available for questions or feedback so please don’t hesitate to ask. Thanks and have a great day!
