Swim Lessons

Evolution Swim Academy offers 9 learning levels within our swim lesson curriculum. We offer four swim safety learning levels, one development learning level, and four stroke-technique learning levels. When your child has successfully completed all lesson plans, you can be assured that he/she will be a safer swimmer and will have a basic understanding of the four major strokes in the sport of swimming. We not only create safer swimmers, we also create smarter swimmers who have a healthy respect for all bodies of water that surround us in Orange County.

Children learn best through repetition. You will notice that our curriculum lesson plans repeat themselves until we feel that our students have mastered the skills necessary to move up to the next learning level. This will assure that our students retain the skills learned. The natural progression in our curriculum will also make it easier for our students to transition to the next learning level.

Accelerator Program

As part of our early adapters programming, The Accelerator Program is a program intended to assist in transitioning a timid and fearful child to a child that is ready to participate in a structured swim lesson environment. The Accelerator Program lessons are 1:1 (student/instructor ratio) for 15 minutes, for 5 consecutive days. A trained instructor will assist in getting a child comfortable in the water by repeating three water acclimation skills throughout each lesson.

Parent & Me

As part of our early adapters programming, we offer students 6-months of age and under, free Parent & Me lessons*. There is nothing that prohibits infants from safely taking swim lessons and there is nothing more appealing than taking introductory lessons at zero cost.

Parent & Me lessons are more than just fun. These classes are educational and have lead to very interesting findings in studies. For example, in 2010, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) formally revised their policy on drowning prevention based on a study performed by the National Institute of Health (NIH) which found that formal swimming lessons between the ages of 1 – 4 lead to an 88% reduction of risk from drowning. Further studies have been performed by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology revealing that infants that participated in swimming lessons demonstrated better balance and motor skills from the start of their lessons up to the age of 5. These lessons are best performed in controlled climates.

We invite you to trial your first class for free. With so many swim lesson locations throughout Orange County, Evolution Swim Academy is a great place to get started in your learn to swim journey.

Non-competitive Swim Team

Intro to Gators is a fun, non-competitive, swim team where swimmers will achieve a working knowledge of the four major swim strokes. Coaches will also work with your children and teach them basic swim terminology and proper swim team etiquette that can be carried on to the competitive ranks.

This Program is offered to our students ages fives and above who have a working knowledge of freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke. The Intro to Gators program is offered throughout Orange County, specifically in the cities of Ladera Ranch, Laguna Hills, Aliso Viejo (seasonal) and Mission Viejo.

Our goal is that every child be successful in this program. Some of our swimmers will go on to swim on Gators Swim Club (competitive swim team) and others will simply do it as a healthier lifestyle option. Whatever the reason, we want to fulfill your goals.

Structure:

  1. This program meets Monday-Thursday, Saturday* and Sunday* for 45-minute practices.Students can attend 1x or 2x per week, where you choose the day(s) and location that is most convenient to you. See Schedule bellow for each location.
  2. The Intro to Gators program is a year-round program and parents can choose to start this program at any point in the season. You can also go, month-to-month and end the program at your convenience.
  3. We offer fun swim meets called “Splash & Dash” throughout the year. These swim meets are recognized as “recitals” for non-competitive swimmers. These swim meets are held at our Mission Viejo facility and participation is optional but strongly recommended.
  4. When a child is ready to join our competitive team, we will hand him/her a “Swim Team Ready” certificate. We will also go over the information that is important to both parents and swimmers, so that you can make an informed decision in regard to the next step. If a swimmer receives a “Swim Team Ready” certificate, it does not mean that you have to leave the Intro to Gators program. It simply notifies you that if you are wanting to join the competitive team, your child is ready!

Coaching Staff:

The Intro to Gators coaching staff does most of their work from the pool deck. On occasion, coaches will flex their muscles and get in the water with their swimmers. Getting in the water is at the coach’s discretion. The coaching staff will work with your swimmer to develop all four of the major swim strokes in preparation for a future in aquatic sports.

Equipment Requirements:

  1. Each swimmer must have goggles, fins and a kick board.
  2. Swimmers with long hair or hair that goes past the eye line, must wear a swim cap as to keep the hair out of the eyes.
  3. Boys must wear “jammer” or “brief” swimsuits and girls must wear one-piece swimsuits. We do not allow board shorts for boys or two-piece swimsuits for girls.
  4. We sell starter kits for $60.00. These kits include fins, a kick board and a swimsuit.

To make it easy for you, we sell all of the required equipment and apparel at Evolution Swim Academy Mission Viejo. Swimmers who attend practice without the proper uniform and/or equipment will not be allowed to participate.
