Pools

  1. Guppies (Ages 6 mo - 3 yrs w/adult)
  2. Yellow Group (Ages 3+)
  3. Green Group (Ages 3+)
  4. Red Group (Ages 5+)
  5. Blue Group (Ages 5+)

The guppies group is for caregiver adults and young babies or children who are not yet ready to swim without physical assistance and presence of their caregivers. The guppies group will help adults and children feel comfortable, safe and begin developing a sense of happiness in the water. These are the building blocks towards becoming an aquatics learner down the road as they begin to develop some independence.
