About Our Swim Lessons
  • The Dive Spot offers swim lessons for all ages 6 months and older.
  • Lessons meet the needs of each swimmer from the elementary skills of water exploration, primary skills & stroke readiness to more advanced stroke development and refinement.
  • The average group size is 4-6. StarBabies and StarTots (ages 3 and younger) and Adult lessons may have a few more participants.
  • Eight 30-minute lessons are offered during each 2-week session.
  • There is a short orientation on day 1.
  • There is a short break between classes to move swimmers in and out.
  • Please apply sunscreen at home. This allows time for the skin to absorb it.
  • Children aged 3 and younger who are not potty trained must wear swim diapers.
  • Children aged 4 and older must be potty trained. Let us know if you have a special needs child for whom it is appropriate to make an exception (they will wear a swim diaper).
  • All swimmers wear eye protection except for those aged 3 and younger.
  • Those not directly involved in the lesson wait behind the fence during lessons to avoid distracting swimmers while instruction is being given.
  • A Swimming Level guide is available to assist you in helping us place your child in the best possible learning environment.
  • Triathletes are invited to hone their swim skills for competitive success.

Swimming Levels Guide

The Dive Spot
Calling all parents of 3-5 year olds! We would love your permission to include information gathered from your child's participation in swim lessons this summer in a study of Pediatric Water Competency and Swim Skill Retention. It will not change the swim lessons in any way, and will simply require the swim teacher to log information about your child's skill development (no name attached to info). We will give you helpful and thorough study details when you enroll your child in lessons and you may consent to participation or decline at that time.
