Friendswood City Pool is happy to be bringing back our Acorn Aquatic Academy swim lesson program for the 2021 Summer season!!
Friendswood City Pool is piloting a streamlined swim lesson registration process for Swim Lessons this summer. No longer will you need to select the specific skill level for children ages 2 to 12 years old. Now you will simply select the session dates and time you would like to attend, and our talented team will do the rest!
*Swimmers will arrive 10 minutes early for the first day of each session to be sorted into levels based on benchmarks*
**Waitlisted swimmers will be contacted as more instructors and/or spots become available.**
Swimmers will work on adjusting to classes without assistance of a parent and becoming comfortable with the water by learning skills such as floating and breathe control. Techniques such as kicking and basic arm movements of freestyle and backstroke will be taught.
Swimmers will work on becoming fully submerged, swimming freestyle and backstroke with assistance, and entering the water head first from a seated position.
Swimmers will work on swimming freestyle and backstroke with little to no assistance and will begin learning elementary backstroke. Swimmers will also be introduced to breaststroke and butterfly kick as well as learn shallow diving from a kneeling position.
Swimmer should be able to perform freestyle and backstroke with no assistance for half a pool length. Swimmers will learn the arm movements for butterfly and breaststroke and learn to use them in conjunction with kicks. Depending on advancement of the class, swimmers may also be introduced to standing shallow dives and flip-turns.
