Swim Lessons

Safety Lessons

Evolution Swim Academy offers five swim safety learning levels. When your child has successfully completed all lesson plans, you can be assured that he/she will be a safer and more confident swimmer.

Children learn best through repetition and while in our safety swim lesson plans, our students will repeat the skills within each plan until we feel that they have mastered the skills necessary to move up to the next learning level. This will assure that our students retain the skills learned and the natural progression in our curriculum will make it easier for our students to transition from one level to the next.
