Parent Tot

 

Parent Tot

Our Parent Tot classes are designed for children ages four months to 30 months. This 30-minute class has a 6:1 student-to-teacher ratio. This fun and foundational time for parents and babies covers water exploration, breath control, water movement, and safety skills. The use of songs and games help children feel safe while discovering the foundations of swimming and our warm water (92 degrees) makes a wonderful environment for swimming beginnings!

At Sea Otter Swim Lessons we believe that infant swimming increases water comfort and provides a strong foundation for safety skills and stroke techniques. Participating in parent/tot classes can be a special bonding experience with your child while setting the important example of a healthy attitude about the water.

Diaper Policy:

We require children ages three and younger follow our diaper policy (potty trained or not) when swimming in our pool.

Three years and younger: Must wear two diapers, one disposable swim diaper and one non-disposable cloth diaper.

Three to Four Years: Children ages three to four years who are fully potty trained must wear a Sea Otter-approved non-disposable swim diaper only. Children who are not fully potty trained must wear both a Sea Otter-approved non-disposable swim diaper and a disposoable swim diaper.

Our approved swim diapers may be purchased year round in our onsite retail shop and seasonally at local retailers (i.e.: Babies R Us). Children ages three and younger who are not wearing an approved swim diaper will not be permitted to enter to pool.


These policies are in place to help protect children and prevent the spread of Recreational Water Illnesses (RWI) caused by bacteria such as E. coli.

If you have any doubt, please have your child wear an approved diaper.


The Placer County Health Department requires that all persons who have had diarrhea within the past 14 days stay out of the pool water. Diarrhea is the main cause of health risk in a swimming pool.

We sincerely thank you for helping to keep Sea Otter safe and clean!

Adult

Whether you are 19 or 90 we have instruction that’s right for you! Many adults think it’s too late to learn to swim, but that’s simply not true! You can learn to enjoy the water and be mobile in it at any age. No matter your background or fears, we can help! Our adult lessons are available in private, semi-private, and seasonally in group classes.

 

Statistics in the U.S. (Gallup Poll, 1998)

  • 46 percent of American adults are afraid of water over their heads in a pool.
  • 64 percent are afraid in deep, open water.
  • 39 percent are afraid to put their heads under water.

    Most adults are embarrassed and/or feel ashamed that they have not learned to swim. Sharing this information helps them feel less alone.

    Our instructors are trained in overcoming fear for adult swimmers. Our training includes a comfort assessment, goal sheets, comfort drills, and physical support. It is largely based on the book, “Conquer Your Fear of Water,” by Melon Dash.

    Learn to Swim

     

    This class is designed to introduce the inexperienced or fearful adult to the water. The objective of this course is to help adults become more comfortable in the water and enjoy it safely. Students will learn breath control, relaxation, floating, and swimming movement in the shallow and deep water. As they build confidence, students will learn proper kicking and body position for front and back swimming. Freestyle, back crawl, elementary backstroke, and basic safety skills will be refined as students become more comfortable in the pool.

    Adult Swim Refinement Class

     

    This class is designed for the more experienced swimmer. Objectives in the course will be to work on proper timing, technique, and stroke refinement in order to achieve more ease, efficiency, power, and endurance. Students will focus on refining their basic strokes so that they may be able to swim over longer distances. Students will work on more advanced diving progressions, turns at the wall, and safety skills.

Adaptive Aquatics

Sea Otter Swim Lessons is excited to offer our Adaptive Swim Program! We provide high-quality swim lessons to children and adults with special needs, taught by specially trained instructors. Our goal is to help each swimmer push past their physical, cognitive, or neurological challenges to be successful in learning to swim, learning water safety, developing confidence, increasing fitness, and having fun! We strive to help each swimmer reach their fullest potential. The program includes one-on-one instruction with a specially trained instructor, an initial out-of-water assessment, and an individualized lesson plan designed to fit each swimmer’s personal goals and needs.

 

Learning to swim can be not only a life-saving skill but a lifelong recreational activity, promoting a healthier, safer, more enjoyable future.

Our Adaptive classes are offered in 20 or 30-minute private lessons. Once the swimmer has been in private lessons for at least one session and upon instructor discretion, they may move to a 30-minute semi-private lesson, if desired, or they may remain in their private lesson.

 

Swimming is for Life!
