5 Reasons To Enroll

Reasons to Enroll in Swim Lessons

1.

WATER SAFETY:

Playing in the water is FUN! When your family knows how to swim, it opens up opportunities for your family whether it be water parks, the ocean, the lake or even the bathtub! Water is all around us, knowing how to be safe in and around it is critical. There is no better way to learn than swim lessons that have an emphasis in water safety.

2.

PREVENT DROWNING:

Accidental drowning is the #1 Cause of Unintentional Death in children ages 1-4 years old, resulting is 27% of fatalities. In children age 5-9 years old drowning is responsible for 13% of deaths. Even as they grow up, 10% of unintentional deaths are caused by drowning for kids aged 10-14.

The only way to prevent these deaths are to make sure that children know what the rules are in and around water, and know how to get to safety if they were to fall into a pool or body of water. Swim lessons are the most ideal way to teach kids how to swim.

3.

HEALTHY LIFESTYLE:

Swimming is a lifelong activity and can lead to a child expanding their options when it comes to sports and activities. Colorado Springs Swim School is partnered with Full Armour Swim Team. Just because a child has finished swim lessons, does not mean they have to stop swimming. They can compete in swim meets, try diving, scuba, water polo, and much more. Swim Team can be an enjoyable activity that promotes teamwork, camaraderie, personal achievement and a healthy lifestyle.

4.

FUN:

Water is FUN. When kids know how to be safe around water. The pool and natural bodies of water become playgrounds. Every kid remembers their time at the pool in the summer playing Marco Polo or going off the diving board. Our swim lessons are fun and engaging and lead to youth learning the safety skills to swim and play safely in any pool.

5.

SOCIAL OUTLET:

All kids prosper when they have the opportunity to develop healthy peer and adult relationships. All of our swim classes and activities take place in a safe environment with qualified, trained instructors.

Our Goal for our Swim Lessons is to Allow Your Child to Develop:

  • A Love For the Water & The Sport Of Swimming

Swim Lessons to Swim Team

Swim Lessons to Swim Team

We consider our swim lesson kids part of the Full Armour family. Our Team has a ranking system similar to that of medieval times. When youth went through years of training to join the knighthood. We start our kids as Pages in our swim lesson programs than they get promoted to Squires (Beginner Swim Team), Commanders (Intermediate Swim Team) and finally Knights (Advanced Swim Team.

Swim Lessons Colorado Springs

What is a Sea Page?

In Medieval Times, the Page was the first step in becoming a Knight. Kids around age 7 could join the ranks and become a Page. As a Page, kids learned the basics and fundamentals that came along with the job of eventually being a Knight. So too, our program starts our swimmers as Sea Pages. In swim lessons, they will learn the fundamentals and basics required to join the swim team and move up in the ranks. The badge of a Sea Page is a sailboat. With any journey, it is first required that you set sail. In the words of Lau-tzu a famous philosopher, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” More importantly, a boat that does not float is useless. As a Sea Page, kids will learn how to float and propel themselves through the water in

basic form.

What is a Sea Squire?

Once Pages reached a certain point, they were appointed to take on the role of a Squire. As a Squire, kids would fight and train alongside the Knights, where they would prove over time their worthiness to become a Knight.

As our Sea Pages become appointed as Sea Squires, the responsibility and level of training increases. Sea Squires will now gain the endurance required to train and compete for longer durations. The badge of the Sea Squire is the compass, because as swimmers start to gain their confidence, they also start to take responsibility for their training. Sea Squires start to set their goals and learn how to guide themselves toward them. Find out more about our swim team here.
