Will swimming lessons benefit my infant?

Swimming is the most natural exercise for infants because they live in a warm water environment through gestation and it feels natural for the infant to continue their relationship with water. Infants learn to hold their breath through command and repetition, increasing blood flow and oxygen to vital organs in the body. Swimming is also a great bonding activity for both parent and child and is one of the few exercises that benefits us throughout our lifetime.

Why can’t I use disposable swim diapers for my child during swim lessons?

When using disposable swim diapers, the synthetic fibers break down into the pool and interfere with our pool filtration system. Additionally, disposable diapers do not have a tight enough fit around the leg opening, creating risk for fecal matter to escape. Fecal accidents in the pool require a 24 hour closure, which adversely affects our customers and our business. If your child is not potty trained through the night, they will be required to wear 2 reusable swim diapers. Please help us keep our pool clean.

What can my infant eat before lessons?

Please stick to the B.R.A.T diet to reduce the chances of your child’s stomach getting upset. The child should only eat "B.R.A.T" items 2 hours prior to the lesson time. Please, no acidic foods or milk products before lessons!
