OSA Class Descriptions
For swimmers under 3, these classes focus on comfort and ease in the water for both swimmers and parents! The more advanced levels of this class focus on swimmers' independence while also learning water-safety skills such as floating and rolling over to call for help. These classes are 30 minutes long.
BathtimeBabies (2 months - 6 months)
This class is not only a great introduction to water for the little swimmers, but also a once in a lifetime bonding experience! There is NO SUBMERSION in this class. Instead we encourage mom and dad to throw out the plastic tub inserts, fill the tub and make bath time family time.
Waterbabies (4 months - 36 months)
This water introduction class uses goes, songs, and patterns to encourage comfort in the water. We utilize a fun approach to scary skills to make submersions and back floats fun instead of daunting.
This water exploration class shifts focus to the swimmer’s bond with instructors while continuing to become more comfortable with skills like submerging, floating, and learning to rollover independently.
Tadpole (18 months - 36 months)
This water propulsion class starts with parents on the side and transitioning out of the water, as the swimmers work with instructors to perfect the skills of independent floating, submerging, and rolling over.
