Why is learning to swim a priority?

What are the benefits of swimming?


Swimming has amazing benefits for all ages including:

  • Water's buoyancy make swimming the ideal exercise for physical therapy and rehabilitation, or for anyone seeking a low-impact exercise.

I have a pool at home, any safety tips?


Absolutely! Here are 3 essential water safety tips we recommend to parents with pools: Safer water - Be sure to install, maintain and utilize proper fencing, gates, gate latches, alarms and other safety equipment around the pool. Safer Kids - Be sure to employ constant adult supervision and swim skill attainment through on-going qualified instruction. Dolphin Aquatic Center is here for that! Also remember, proper behavior in and around the water.
Safer Response - Learn CPR, first-aid, and rescue techniques. Keep an emergency action plan and phone by the pool at all time. (Information courtesy - swimforlife.org)

What is the difference between a private and semi-private lesson?


Private lessons are 1-1 student to instructor ratio. Semi-private lessons are 1-2/3 student to instructor ratio.




What is considered proper swim attire for the pool?


If a student is not toilet trained or has been toilet trained for less than 6 months, he/she must wear a disposable swim diaper and an approved cloth swim diaper to assure a double layer of protection. Swim diapers must pass the two finger test (if 2 fingers can be inserted under the elastic in the legs and waist, the swim diaper is too large and the child will not be permitted in the water). Wearing only a disposable diaper is not allowed as disposable swim diapers alone do not prevent accidents.

Please give us a call at +2348022228642. Changes are subject to availability.
