Swimming Lesson 2017

Gym-Ken's goal is to produce safer, skilled and happy swimmers while building self esteem and a love for the water. We are also committed to providing professional swim instruction in a nurturing and fun environment!

We offer 4, 2 week sessions with each session being 4 days a week (Monday - Thursday). The research we have done has shown significant success and enhanced improvement in the shorter session with back to back days. We have also discovered that assigning Sessions this way helps those vacationing summer families. Listed below is the schedule for this summer. If you have any questions pertaining to your child's level placement, please speak with the office.

Swim Level Descriptions


Water Babies
This is for children ages 2-3 years old.  We will introduce them to basic swimming using a back float (bubble) and dumbbell. We are working towards making your child an independent swimmer with just their bubble.  The best part is, the parent does not need to get in the water!!
**Your child must be enrolled in a current class at Gym-Ken Gymnatics to participate in this program or they need to know Miss Kara or Miss Amanda through their siblings.  This is done so that we may alleviate any amount of stress associated with a new enviornment that may be uncomfortable for your child.**
