Pre-Strokes: What should my child be able to do to join this class?

October 30, 2018

To join our pre-strokes class we expect children to:


  • Be mature enough to take a class on their own. If it's the first time they've taken a class on their own do expect a period of adjustment.

  • Be very comfortable in the water, meaning they are happy to be in the water and willing to submerge consistently.

  • Be able to float on their front by themselves, no floating devices!

Our video below illustrates it perfectly. In our video you will see little J having just graduated from our Tots 2 class to Pre-Strokes. 



If your child can't do the above and they are younger than 2 years and 10 months I'd recommend they join the adult assisted Tots 2 class. If they are older than 2 years and 10 months I'd recommend they join the Scared Beginners class.
