Programs for children and teens

2

January 9 – February 26, 2023

The Olympic Way (Ages 2 to 16)

Registration is done in the child’s name; therefore, they will require their own LUDIK client number.

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 swimming. As they progress through the eight swimming levels, they become proficient at the four competitive swim strokes.
