Who Takes Our Next Step Course?

Graduates of our Beginning course take the Next Step when they can:

◈ float and unfloat on front and back
◈ do reversals
◈ roll over in shallow water peacefully.

Comfortable learning with instructor socially distant.

What Is the Course?

Become calm in water over your head.

Be able to rest and play anywhere in deep water without getting tired for 10 – 15 minutes.

Go at your own pace and learn as much as 24 hours allows.

Same format is the same as the Beginning course: 8 three-hour sessions.  1 hour on land, 2 hours in the pool.

In the deep end when you’re ready, you’ll learn a portion of your deep-end confidence on one or our “rigs”, as pictured. This keeps you socially distant from the instructor and other students.

You are connected securely to the bar with straps so you don’t need a spotter. The rig  helps you learn your next step as you become ready. It’s fun! The students in the photo outgrew the connector straps.

In Person: Start where you are today and skip no steps. This course is all the dry-land sessions and as you become ready, the deep water skills you need, including essential skills not taught elsewhere. Rely on yourself for your safety, rather than the bottom or the side. Each student will learn a portion of his/her confidence at our new Float Bars, as pictured (one per student). You are connected securely to the bar so you don’t need a spotter. These allow social distancing, yet allow you to learn the early skills comfortably.

Students begin to learn to float. (Pre-Covid-19)

You Can Count On:

◈ Feeling safe all the time
◈ Learning with others who feel as you do
◈ Having fun, no pressure, no competition

◈ Going at your own pace and being comfortable
◈ Overcoming fear without being scared
◈ Being yourself in deep watear
◈ Doing things you never could, because you feel better than you ever did
◈ Feeling that you’re learning to swim
◈ Being more yourself when you leave

"In previous classes when we jumped in, it was like walking the plank. Here, we feel like we're in the ice cream line!" -JY, Canada
