Evo Curriculum

EVO Swim School has an array of classes designed to help your child evolve into a great swimmer. Our goals for your child consist of five methodical steps. First, we will introduce your child to the water and help him or her build confidence in a new environment. Second, your child will be taught basic swimming skills for backyard fun and survival if necessary. Thirdly, we will introduce students to “form” swimming for efficiency in the water, and as the first step to learning the four competitive strokes. Fourth, we will refine their form, improve their endurance, and encourage their love of the water. And finally, we will perfect all four competitive strokes, and (if desired) introduce them to swimming as a sport.

Parent-Tot Instruction

Nine months to three years old (younger babies will require special permission). One instructor per 6 parent/tot companionships. A parent, grandparent, or authorized adult must be in the water with their child. Instruction includes how to handle and work with your baby in the water.

  • Starfish

    This parent/tot class requires an adult to be in the water with each baby or tot. First time swimmers will focus on a basic introduction to the water with emphasis placed on becoming relaxed, holding their breath and participation in a group setting. A great bonding experience for both parent and tot!

  • Pufferfish

    This parent/tot class requires an adult to be in the water with each baby or tot. Designed for babies who have experienced our Starfish level, are comfortable in the water and have learned to hold their breath. Emphasis in this class will be placed on breath control, unassisted movement in the water, floating, and baby survival skills. This class will prepare your child for a regular group lesson without Mom or Dad in the water.

Entry Level Instuction

Children can start at 2.5 years old (or 20 months with parent/tot instruction). Otter class level has one instructor per four students. Seal class level has one instructor per four students. Instruction designed to help young children be comfortable and relaxed in the water and acquire basic water survival skills.

  • Otter

    Designed for children who are not yet independent in the water. Breath control, kicking, floating and swimming with their face in the water are all major components of this class. Tears are common, yet fears are usually overcome within two to three lessons.

  • Seal

    Children will learn to swim from point “A” to point “B” efficiently while rolling on their back to breathe. Survival skills are also developed. This class will make your child a safe and independent backyard swimmer.

Intermediate Instruction

Children are typically ages 4 to 12 years old. One instructor per four students. Instruction designed to introduce children to “form” swimming and to become more efficient, safe, and happy in the water.

  • Sea Lion

    This class will introduce form swimming to your child. An introduction to “big arms” freestyle and improved breathing techniques will be the main focus. Underwater skills will also be taught for enhanced backyard fun!

  • Porpoise

    Instruction will include the freestyle stroke with the side breathing technique and backstroke. Improved endurance in the water (great exercise!) while learning the first two competitive strokes.

  • Dolphin

    This class will focus on continued endurance and efficiency in the water by maintaining freestyle and backstroke. Breaststroke and butterfly will be introduced to complete instruction of all four competitive strokes.

Advanced Instruction

Children are typically ages 5 to 12 years old. One instructor per twelve students. Kids will swim in the length of our pool (20 yards) and instruction has been designed to perfect the four competitive strokes, learn how to turn and streamline off the wall, and further increase stability and endurance in the water.

  • Advanced Stroke

    Swimmers will perfect the four competitive strokes, learn flip turns, proper streamlining and build endurance in the water. As an introduction to the swim team environment, your child will learn how to circle swim and understand the basics of swimming as a competitive sport.
