Kids & Preschool - Water Exploration - Splash Classes Splash 1: 6 months and older who are not comfortable in the water
Splash 2: 3 years and older, comfortable in the water, but not ready to swim without a parent
This class is great for both kids who love bath time and those kids who are nervous about water in their faces. By singing songs and playing games in the pool, students will explore their faces in the water, but they are never forced. Some of the basic skills are: water adjustment, breath control, balance, and personal pool safety. We also practice boating safety and basic first aid by the water. Students are fitted with a Coast Guard approved lifejacket before going in the small inflatable boat. The CERC is a wonderful place to meet new friends and learn basic water skills.
For: 6 months – 8 year old must have a legal adult in the water with them. Location: CERC | Pool Instructor: Kim Domke
