Children's Adapted Aquatics

Children's Adapted Aquatics (CAA) teaches skills in progression, allowing participants to swim and play safely in the water. Participants, with one-on-one instruction, will be individually assessed on their swimming skills. Instructors will create weekly lesson plans to work with each child on their water safety and swimming skills. CAA lessons are grouped according to age to facilitate the socialization benefits of class. Typically, the three - five year old class covers Learn-to-Swim preschool levels 1-3, the six - nine year old class typically covers levels 1-4 and ages ten - 16 are usually between levels 3-6. If a class is full, please contact the Community Programs Office to see if another class may be an appropriate substitute.
