Good Swim Lessons


my son just turned four and i wanted him to started swim lessons in the winter. He likes to be in the water but does not like water in his face so i want him to get used to it. i take him swimming but i also have a two year old so its almost impossible to teach him by myself. I was wondering if somebody knows a place that teaches swimming where i don't have to be with him.

Thank you!!!!

What can I do next?

Check out Dive Quarters in Va Beach. They teach Infant Swim Resource---survival swimming. This program is a one on one program, just one teacher and student each day. My daughter learned quickly and has been quite the fish the past 2 summers. She had lots of confidence in the water.

Hi, I asked this question about a half a year ago for my 3 and 5 year olds. I ended up doing the lessons at the YMCA on Indian River. We didn't get a membership - just did the lessons which were about $80 apiece for 8 lessons. We had a teacher named Anna and she was excellent. Very sensitive to the child's fears and gentle but firm. I imagine that you could request her. My kids were in the "Pike" level, which was 3-5 year olds, which your boy would be. You do not have to be with him in the water. Good luck!
