What can children learn?

Infants six to twelve months can learn to: 

  • hold their breath in the water
  • roll over from a face-down position to a face up back float
  • float, relax and breathe until rescued by an adult
  • perform these skills fully clothed

Some infants may even learn to propel a short distance through the water between two parents. 

Children who are walking (starting from 1 years old until as old as 6 years) can learn to:

  • hold their breath in the water
  • swim with their face in the water to a safe place/parent
  • roll over onto their back when they need to breathe
  • flip back onto their tummy to continue to swim until reaching their destination
  • perform these skills fully clothed

These lessons are designed to give your child the skills to survive if an accident were to happen, but it isn't a guarantee. Parent's should continue to watch their children in and around water!
