Welcome to SwimWestVolusia of County, Florida.
Certified instructors provide area families with the most comprehensive drowning prevention
program available today.
This web site provides basic
information about the swim program and what infants and
young children can accomplish through this program.
Lessons are offered early-spring through late-fall. All lessons are
conducted one-on-one for a period of 10 minutes daily.
Babies 6 to 12 months old are very active and surprisingly quick! The
Survival Float program introduces the
correct floating posture for survival
as well as the skills necessary to maneuver into a
float. Babies learn quickly from their physical environment. This is how
they learn to crawl and walk.
These skills will be practiced for complete mastery even while fully clothed with diaper and
shoes. All lessons are taught one-on-one for a
period of 10 minutes. Approximate class
length: 3-4 weeks.
The Swim-Float-Swim program encompasses the skills necessary for a
child to reach the steps, edge of the pool or
shore. This includes swimming and floating. This process
begins with teaching the child breath control and
the skills to turn around in
the water to grab the edge. As the child becomes capable of
longer swims the survival float is taught so the child can rest and breathe,
and then continue swimming. This sequence can be repeated indefinitely until
the child reaches safety. These skills will be practiced
for complete mastery even while fully clothed with shoes and
diaper for those not toilet trained. All lessons are
taught one-on-one for a period of 10 minutes. Approximate class length: 5-6 weeks.
parent asks if their baby or young child will really remember
what they have learned. The answer is "yes."
Refresher lessons are important, however, because as your
children grow the proportions of their bodies change
significantly. The purpose of Refresher lessons is to
allow the child to practice the already learned skills with
his or her new body and new set of emotions. This also
provides the instructor an opportunity to observe and
correct any "bad habits" that may have been learned. All
lessons are taught one-on-one for a period of 10 minutes.
