Hello and Welcome to Week 7 of our Spring Session!


My name is ____________ and I will be your deck supervisor. 


In Swimstars Transitional and Prep our two year olds are practicing movement by kicking their feet behind them on their back and belly with the use of equipment. Developing a strong kick, is necessary to swim well.

In Level 1 we are working on all four pillar skills by having students swim to the instructor and do a supported roll over to a back float. Students may become tired while swimming and this skill encourages them to simply roll to the back for a rest if they get tired while swimming.

In Level 2 we are educating our students on breath control through the use of rhythmic breathing by introducing the pop up. This skill encourages comfort, confidence and independence in the pool by encouraging them practice rhythmic breathing while in motion which allows them to swim further distances than breath holding alone.

In Level 3 we are working on the foundation of the breaststroke taught in level 4. This involves students practicing the simultaneous movements of the arms and legs that we refer to as pizza arms and frog legs.

In Level 4 we are introducing the Backstroke. We are reinforcing the proper body position, through swimming on our backs with flutter kicks and alternating arm strokes.

In Swim Team Prep we will be focusing on Flip Turns.




We will be CLOSED on Sunday, March 31st in Celebration of Easter. If you typically swim on Sunday’s a Make Up will be added to your account and no further action is needed. 

Did you know that we have an unlimited absence and makeup policy!  Reporting your absence in the parent portal will ensure that your account is credited with an absence which you can use for a MAKEUP in another class that is not fully enrolled, has an absence already reported for the day or is a designated makeup class. Please report your absences ASAP so another family can take your spot! 

If you are running late, please wait at the door in the center of the of the lobby and the Deck Supervisor will greet you and escort your students to class.  Also, at the end of class, please remember to wait at or near exit doors for your swimmers.  As a safety precaution, we cannot allow students to wander independently into the locker room, if we do not see a parent/guardian with them. Just give us a friendly wave to confirm if you are not right up front. 

On deck showers are available and can be used for a quick rinse after class (no soap, shampoo, etc. please).  However if you are showering in the locker room, please be mindful of others in the facility and limit your time spent in the shower and please no reserving showers. Thanks for your cooperation! 

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.
