The number one reason our instructors are able to provide a positive learning experience for children of all ages is their love of the water. TideWater offers homogenized Group Lessons at different skill levels to guide children through the progressions of learning how to swim. Our beginner Groups focus on water safety, using a blend of survival techniques and core-based swimming; while our intermediate and advanced Groups focus on proper swimming mechanics to help children become stronger swimmers and potentially prepare them to join our Swim Team. We also offer Private (one-on-one) Lessons that are tailored to each swimmer’s individual ability, level and parents/student goals — be it water safety, mechanics or prep to pass the local pool swim test.
