The Olympic Way (Ages 2 to 16)

This spring, if social distancing must be maintained, instructors will continue to teach from the poolside, which will require one parent to be in the water with each child for the White, Yellow and Green level classes or with any child who is not autonomous in the water.

Children under 12 years old must be accompanied at all times. They cannot be left unsupervised if a parent is participating in a class with another child.

Non-swimmers learn to swim using a swimming aid, which allows them to spend more time in the water. As they progress through the eight swimming levels, they become proficient at the four competitive swim strokes.
