Water Babies (parent and child 6 months-3 years)
This class familiarizes young children ages six months – three years to the water and prepares them to learn to swim while teaching parents techniques that help orient their children to the water.
Students should come prepared for class with the following: towel, bathing suit, and sunscreen. Children requiring the use of diapers during normal activities must wear disposable swim diapers while using University recreational facilities. Please do not dispose of diapers in trash cans on the deck, they must be disposed of in the locker room.
• Minimum of three participants per class
• Student’s swim lessons levels are based on skill level
• Children should use the restroom before the start of their lesson
• No children are allowed in the pool before or after their scheduled class
• Parents must remain in the pool at all times with Water Baby swimmers
• Parental interaction from the deck with students should be kept to a minimum as this is distracting to both the student and the instructor
• If a student needs to be excused for any reason during a session, the parent is responsible for escorting the child to and from the pool
The first day that class is cancelled, we will be watching a land based safety video that is recommended by the American Red Cross. The second class that is cancelled, we will schedule a make-up day. Only one make-up day will be offered per session. There are no make-up classes if a participant is unable to attend a class.
Full refunds will be given one week prior to the first class; $25 processing fee through the second class. No refunds thereafter, with no exceptions.
