REDMOND AQUATIC ACADEMY SWIM LESSONS

OUR MISSION

At Redmond Aquatic Academy we believe that teaching water safety saves lives. We believe that learning to swim opens up a world of recreational and fitness opportunities that span a lifetime. Our mission is to provide effective, accessible and engaging aquatic programs for all ages and abilities. How does Redmond Aquatic Academy Program work? Redmond Aquatic Academy programming is based on a progressive levels structure. The program starts with Waterbabies, which is a parent and child water safety and skills program for infants and toddlers.

Our swim lesson program begins with 3 progressive preschool levels that provide the basics of water safety, skills acquisition and building blocks of stroke development. After the preschool levels (or beginning here if the child is over age (6) are the 6 and up Basic levels (White, Orange and Green.)  After completing the 6 and up basic levels, parents and participants can choose to continue to the Swim-for-Life recreational track and complete the Blue and Black levels, or branch off to the competitive swimming track; Junior Eels and RACE.

(Participants will be evaluated on the first day of each session and placement may be adjusted by the instructor.)
