Saguaro Aquatics Health & Safety Protocols
Saguaro Aquatics has transformed the way we offer Swimming Lessons to ensure the Health and Safety of our staff, clients and swimmers. Seating is spaced by 20ft, controlled facility traffic flow with temperature screenings before entry, enhanced HVAC systems for increased fresh air ventilation, pool sanitation is checked hourly, 5 minute breaks between each 30 minute lesson to clean: seating, handrails, teaching equipment, bathrooms, changing rooms and all common touch surfaces. Watch this 1 minute video for more information on how we have evolved our Swimming Lesson program.
We started with Saguaro when my daughter was 2.5. Now four years later she is begging me to let her swim with the swim team. After just a short time she was able snorkele with us in Hawaii and was able to navigate open water around the reef. My son is 3 and although he can be a handful (that's possibly an understatement) Josh and the teachers he has trained have handled him beautifully. They allow him to be silly and have fun in the water while still being structured enough to teach him safety skills. Now he wants to practice in the bathtub! We loved Grace, Darlene, Eddie, Gordon, Robin...and are always sad when they graduate, or have babies and make transitions, but we have always had top notch teachers and understand that growth and change are part of life. My littlest (10 months) will be starting swimming lessons soon, can't wait to introduce him to the joy of swimming at Saguaro.
How Long does it take Beginners to Learn to Swim?
It depends on several different things...
Variables that impact the duration for a beginner to learn how to swim include age, prior swimming lesson experience, other sports the swimmer has participated in, if there is a pool at home, and if the swimmer has had a negative experience in or around water.
Are Private or Group lessons best for my child?
Typically group lessons, 2 or 3 days ...
BUT with the Pandemic we are only offering Private Lessons at this time. Group lessons cost less, allow your child to learn from their coach AND other children. Group classes allow your child to watch other children swim the correct and incorrect way to do a skill
How can we Practice at Home without
We have some simple drills that allow you...
Breath control is the KEY to the learn-to-swim process. Blowing bubbles in the bath tub will help! If the lips don't quite get into the water you can start with a full size straw. Trim it down before each practice session. Before they know it lips are in the water blowing bubbles.
