Swimming Texas Babies  - Infant Survival Swimming
Survival Swim Lessons

Fast, Fearless & Curious

Your child sees a world without limits. You see a world with potential hazards. And the leading hazard for young children: water.

Give your child an extra measure of protection with aquatic survival instruction. 
I offer private, highly specialized,  instruction for children from 6 months to 6 years of age.

Every lesson for every child is individualized and one on one with the instructor. I teach children ages 6 months to about 6 years.
Students attend short private lessons four days a week.
This helps provide a very safe lesson and is key to the retention of skills. 

Students who are crawling (generally 6-8 months) through about 11 months will learn survival floating. 
-He or she will be taught to rotate from a face-down position in the water to a back float. 
-The baby will be taught to rest and breathe on his or her back until help arrives. 
-You can expect that the typical infant will attend 4 lessons per week for an average of 3-4 weeks to attain these skills. 

A child who is walking or very close to walking (usually anytime after 11 months to about 6 years) will learn a swim-float-swim sequence. 
-He or she will be taught to swim face down using arms and legs (similar to a freestyle stroke); roll on his or her back to float, rest and breathe when he or she needs air; and then flip over onto his or her stomach to continue swimming until he or she reaches the wall or stairs. 
-This swim-float-swim sequence can be repeated as many times as is necessary to reach safety. 
-This skill set can be achieved with 4 lessons per week in about 4-6 weeks. 

After accomplishing these skills in a bathing suit, children will then practice their skills in summer clothing and then progress onto winter clothing. This additional work is critical to survival swimming because most children who find themselves in the water alone, are fully clothed.

If you or your babysitter, neighbor or grandparents have a backyard pool, lake, pond, canal or other water hazard consider these skills completely necessary for your child's safety.

During lessons, students are closely monitored for temperature fatigue, physical fatigue and general well-being. 

The weekly tuition charge is $85 per week, per child. Unless prior arrangements are made, payment is made via PayPal prior to the first day of lessons. 

Registration Fee:  $35 per family.  This fee is non-refundable and must be paid within 72 hours of notification of swim lesson time. 


If your child is ready for more stroke-specific swim lessons, we can help you with that, too.

Hello future swim parents,
You have registered your child for swim lessons and rest assured that I do my absolute best to get your lesson scheduled as soon as possible.

Please know that the survival lessons take between 3-6 weeks, so I don't have a hard and fast way of knowing when I will have an opening.  I start lessons April 20th and will add students weekly from that point on, throughout the summer. So, if you haven't been scheduled yet, please don't be disappointed b/c we still have plenty of time.  I swim throughout the summer.  I work on my schedule on Thursday evenings/Friday mornings, so please keep an eye out for emails during that time frame.

If you are registered for traditional lessons, sessions are being added and you will be notified once those times/locations have been confirmed.
