Swim lessons will begin February 1, 2021!
The session consist of 8 classes and cost 115.00 for the first set of 8 classes, then drops to 100.00 for any further classes in 2021. Second child in same family is 115.00 then 100.00 for classes after the first set.
My prices are lower than Cobb and Douglas County. Classes are kept small usually 4-7 swimmers per class.
My pool is indoors and heated to 86-88 degrees. The pool room is kept warm for the swimmers' comfort. A waiting room is offered that is comfortable for those that are not wet. Please help keep it clean by cleaning up after your children.
*Times are booked per session on a first-call-and-paid basis.Please plan early -if not enough sign up - classes may be combined or delayed.
I ONLY make up classes cancelled due to inclement weather. If the weather is unfavorable for swimming, I will call and cancel the classes or do a land safety class.
Why should my child take swimming lessons?
Taking swim lessons improves your child’s swimming ability, helps build a persons self-confidence, self-esteem and physical fitness. Good Swimming skills also takes practice and should be continued at least yearly until 12 years old. When a 4-5 or 6 year old only learns the basic skills and you do not continue, then when that child gets to be 9- 10 or older they are quite often embarrassed by their lack of skills or may do something that might get them hurt by not knowing their limits or safety rules for situations. Open water -lakes and rivers and unsupervised back yard pools - kill a lot of kids that do not know how to really swim more that 20-40 feet in a backyard pool or know real safety rules. A 5-6 year old should be able to swim 75 feet with head down and 75 feet on their back. A 7-10 year old child should be able to swim 50-100 yards without stopping or putting their feet down or being too tired. An 11 yr old should be comfortable swimming 200 yard swims with their heads in the water. I WILL get your child swimming correctly. It does take time.
When should my child take swimming lessons?
Although I start teaching kids at age 4, I recommend all children ages 5 and older to take swimming lessons annually until 12 years old or older. By age 6, most children have developed the muscles and coordination necessary to swim and bring arms out of the water while exhaling under the water and learning to side breathe. There is a lot involved in becoming a good swimmer. Lessons before this age are useful, but your child will likely forget skills that are not practiced. At different ages you should expect different skills dependent on the amount of time spent swimming - not just playing in the water.
Hi, I am Cheryl Rountree and I am glad to help you on a way to being safe in the water and a life time of a fun and a healthy activity. I taught the American Red Cross Swim programs and have been teaching for over 40 years. I learned from experience and offer a program that works and is fun for the child. Come watch and you will see that it works and is a very good value. I want kids to learn to swim correctly and hopefully stay with it until they are good.
