Graduates of our Beginning course are eligible for the Next Step course once they can float and unfloat, do reversals, and roll over in shallow water peacefully.
If you've taken the Beginning course and you’re not ready for the Next Step, join us for the online Beginning course. You can benefit from our book, Conquer Your Fear of Water.
The goal of this course is to become calm in water over your head. When you've mastered the material of the Next Step course, you'll be able to rest and play anywhere in deep water without getting tired for at least 10 - 15 minutes. Go at your own pace and learn as much as 24 hours allows. The format is the same as the Beginning course: 8 three-hour sessions of one hour on land followed by two hours in the pool.
At the In-person course, each student will learn in the shallow end and at the walls of the deep end as usual. When you're ready, you'll also learn a portion of your deep-end confidence on our "rig", as pictured. As you begin, you are connected securely to the bar with straps so you don't need a spotter. The rig allows social distancing, yet helps you learn your next step as you become ready. It's fun! The students in the photo outgrew the connector straps.

The In-person Next Step course is available to graduates of our In-person Beginning course. If you are an Online Beginning course graduate, your next step is to take the In-person Beginning course. If you feel you're ready for the In-person Next Step course, send a video of yourself doing all the prerequisites peacefully.
