The goal of our swim lessons is to teach participants to be safe when they are in, on, and around the water. Children are encouraged to try new skills, but they are never forced to complete tasks they are not ready to do. We believe that with patience, positive encouragement and frequent repetition of skills, your child will have a happy and successful swimming experience.
Please note: We can only offer swim lessons to members of pools or communities that are managed by Knoxville Pool Management. The minimum age to participate is 3.
If you're unsure of which class to choose, please speak with the Pool Manager at your pool.
For children who cannot swim at all. This class emphasizes water orientation, basic water safety and developing a comfort level with the water in preparation for beginning to swim.
For children who are comfortable in the water, can float with some assistance, and are ready to learn the basic skills for moving forward in the water. They can swim at least 3 feet with assistance.
For children who can swim 10 feet without assistance. Students learn to recover for a breath while swimming, to float without support and recover to a vertical position. This level marks the beginning of extending the distance that a child is able swim.
