What Will Your Swimmer Learn?

Core Values

Our Baby Swim program includes 5 Core Values which all carry over to our Learn to Swim and Competitive programs. Everything we do at Gold Medal Swim School starts with the Core Values, from Baby Swim all the way to the Olympics. These five Core Values should be used for life. Laying the groundwork with these values ensures strong and healthy life-long swimmers! The instructor will lead you and your swimmer through skills each week until you both are confident and relaxed with the skills. We believe students should learn to swim at their own pace and should never be forced into an aquatic activity. Each Baby Swim class is 30 minutes in length and includes 15 – 20 skills. 6:1 student/adult to instructor ratio.

Our Program

Our curriculum utilizes a layered approach and skills are mastered when they are performed successfully with overlapping Core Values. This takes time and practice! Consistent, high-quality repetition leads to mastery and builds a strong platform to launch both confident survivors and great competitors.

Instructors follow timed lesson plans comprised of skills and Core Values, but the real success happens when instructors tailor these to each student’s needs. You can expect to see skills uniquely delivered to each individual student within the group dynamic. Low student to instructor ratios allow us to teach our swimmers more effectively.

Underwater Monitoring

Instructors go underwater with students! The only way to properly assess tension and relaxation levels is to actually watch and acknowledge them. We also think it is FUN to go underwater and see smiling faces! Students become more confident when their instructor is doing the skills alongside them.

We go underwater with your swimmer not only to watch them let go of their air, but to check their relaxation, comfort, and stress level. We want to help your swimmer learn to relax as they let go of their air because it gives them the best possible chance to swim fast for a long distance or even propel themselves in a survival situation.
