All swimmers must go through Basic Training to build the necessary skills before moving on. Basic training is the backbone of what Atlantic Aquatics Academy has to offer. Swimmers from 6 months and up will learn to swim face down and rotate on their back to a float. After resting and breathing in a floating position, they will learn to go back to a face down posture. This is called Swim Float Swim.
Maintenance continues to support the swimmer's ability to Swim Float Swim in correct posture. The swimmer's foundation in Basic Training is continuously being built upon for skill retention.
These lessons do not replace adult supervision. We don't consider any student "drown-proof."
We are not medical doctors and do not intend our experiences and opinions to supersede appropriate medical attention and advice from a licensed healthcare professional. That being said, we do hope to be a positive source of ideas and encouragement as you care for yourself and your family around an aquatic environment.
