Unfortunately there is not a set time to learn to swim as all swimmers start at their own level and learn at their own pace.
Like anything else, when learning, the more lessons the better. However we understand that schedules do not always allow for that. Ideally every other day or twice a week, but even once a week is beneficial. Back it up with practice always helps.
30 minutes is generally sufficient for those learning to swim. If your swimmer is older and has stamina then 45 minutes might be best. And if your swimmer is a competitive swimmer then we certainly recommend long.
Anyone can join a lesson as long as all swimmers can swim on their own – as instructor cannot have hands on more than one student at a time. There is an additional fee per additional swimmer. We do not recommend this unless both swimmers are of an equal, or close to equal, level.
84° to 94°
It is totally ok for parents to watch, however it is best if observed from afar so your swimmer is not distracted. Swimmers tend to listen, pay attention and perform better when their parents or guardians are not in sight.
Goggles are a good idea to have but instructors will come with all that is needed, even googles.
Instructor can wear a mask and/or teach from pool deck . If a swimmer cannot swim on their own then another adult must in the pool with with swimmer following the directive from the instructor. The good news is the CDC has stated “ CDC is not aware of any scientific reports of the virus that causes COVID-19 spreading to people through the water in pools, hot tubs, water playgrounds, or other treated aquatic venues.
