The next session of the Learn to Swim program at the Little Falls Family YMCA will begin the week of Oct. 22.
Classes will meet once a week for four weeks on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Instruction will be offered for all ages and skill levels, from infants and toddlers to Red Cross Levels 1 to 5.
YMCA Aquatics Director and certified water safety instructor Lisa Sarto will instruct the lessons.
Infant and toddler lessons will provide water adaptation skills and socialization opportunities for children ages six months and older. An adult must accompany the child in the water.
Levels 1 and 2 students will be taught elementary aquatic skills. Students will also strive to achieve success with fundamental skills and mark the beginning of locomotion skills.
Levels 3, 4 and 5 students will learn to demonstrate stroke development, improvement and refine strokes so students swim with more ease, efficiency and power.
American Red Cross Levels 1 to 5 instruction will provide a progressive program for individuals ages five and older that ranges from inexperienced non-swimmers through advanced skills. The program is designed to be progressive with level advancement occurring only with the acquisition of skills. Students do not automatically advance at the end of a session.
Class sizes are limited and pre-registration is required. Previous session participants are not automatically enrolled and must re-register.
Swim scholarships are available through the Uncle Walt’s Swim Scholarship Program.
