The 2023 swim lesson schedule can be viewed in the Summer Program Guide.
Tide Pool Water Explorers | Ages 6mo-2
Children and parents are introduced to the pool through a gently-structured water play. This program gives children a chance to explore the water through songs, splashing, and fun. Each child must be accompanied by an adult. This is not a water safety class or swim instruction, but a chance for children to become more acclimated to the water. Children must wear a swim diaper under their bathing suit if they aren’t toilet trained.
Jellyfish + Parent | Ages 2-4
Children and parents who are ready for the next step can enjoy the same experiences they know and love from our water exploration classes, this time with kickboards, noodles, and water toys to encourage swimmers to use their imaginations as they learn basic swimming skills. Swimmers gain confidence in front and back floats, submerging their face to blow bubbles, arm movements, and water kicks while bonding with their parents. Children must wear a swim diaper under their bathing suit if they aren’t toilet trained.
Jellyfish | Ages 2-5
This class is a continuation of our Parent and Preschool level and is designed for children who are adjusted to the water without a parent. Instructors will work on further developing a foundation of beginning strokes, kicks, and breathing so participants can progress into the beginner level.
Bensenville Swim School | Ages 5-14
The Bensenville Swim School is the evolution of typical multi-level swim programs. Instead of your typical 6-7 level swim school format, we have evolved ours so that swimmers can build upon specific skills, which allows them better develop their talents and abilities in just four levels. In the Bensenville Swim School our students are not expected to move up a level each session, but instead stay in one level and develop good stroke mechanics and endurance before moving up. On the first day, participants will be re-evaluated to ensure proper level placement. All levels are taught at a 1:6 instructor to student ratio. Once placed in a group, children will learn and develop skills with similar swimmers at their level. This will allow us to continue to develop the swimmers and not be confined by only the skills of one level.
Private Lessons | Ages 3+
Private lessons provide the one-on-one attention needed to improve swimming ability! These lessons are adapted to the specific skills you want to develop. They are great for new swimmers who are uncomfortable in the water or for advanced swimmers wanting to perfect their skills! All lessons are sold in a pack of six 30-minute lessons. After registering, a swim instructor suited to help you achieve your goals will be in contact to set up the first lesson.
Semi-Private Lessons | Ages 3+
Semi-private lessons are designed for two-to-three people and give you the ability to create your own group lesson with the peers of your choice. Just like private lessons, semi-private lessons are adapted to the specific skills you want to improve on. They are great for siblings or friends with similar abilities. All lessons are sold in a pack of six 30-minute lessons. After registering, a swim instructor suited to help you achieve your goals will be in contact to set up the first lesson. Lessons begin after June 6. Participant is responsible for securing group members.
