Age information

Youngsters:

In trying to decide if your child is ready for swimming lessons, age is not always the best factor to consider. Instead, ask yourself Mrs. Shannon's big 3 questions:

  1. Is my child potty trained?
  2. Will my child be able to understand and follow directions?
  3. Has my child had any ear trouble?


Mrs. Shannon's big 3 questions address basic needs that should be met before learning can take place.


Big Kids: 

Instructors at Shannon's Swim School love teaching swimmers of all ages. Indeed, swim team members are often able to reduce swim times at Shannon's Swim School thanks to the swim current. However, the 4.5' depth of the pool limits the amount of progress a child can make when they are taller than 4.5' and learning to swim for the first time. Parents of taller children in need of basic swimming skills should seek instruction at a pool with more depth to enable their swimmer with the tools needed for independent success. 


Parents of Infants/ Toddlers:

Please inquire via contact form regarding Mom & Tot classes. These classes are designed to prepare your child for aquatic comfort. That way, when it is time for them to take lessons independently, Mrs. Shannon can begin teaching without having to spend valuable lesson time on aquatic acclimation.
