    swimming lessons

    Advertisements
    At what age did you start swimming lessons?

    We are thinking that our 4 year old is going to start them in July.

    Also, is $40 for 10 sesons bad?

    I think that is a great deal for swim lessons and your never too young for swimming lessons. Just be careful that your child doesn't take in too much water during the lessons and you'll be fine. Have Fun.

    I don't know what the normal age is but I started as a wee baby in mommy baby swim classes and went on from there so I think 4 is just fine for starting classes...and $40 for 10 classes sounds cheap

    It is 2 weeks, 5 days a week.

    I believe you should learn basic swimming.

    There should be different levels taught, right? I think that's how the Red Cross has their swim classes structured.. Jennifer Lynn is a bodyguard, she'd know.. I think it's Jen.

    DD started last summer when she was 3. We paid $64 for 8 weeks (I can't remeber if she went once or twice a week)....That is a great price!!!!

    Embrace those who love you and whom you love, and rid yourself of those who will only bring you down!

    My son started lessons at 2.5. He mostly just wanted to splash and play, I think I'll have him take them again this summer.

    We've been taking Zoe in the pool/ocean since she was a tiny thing and have been teaching her but she hasn't had official lessons yet!

    Up here they have it for smaller children, but recommend that those lessons have the parents there. I wasn't able to because of a high risk pregnancy.

    I think we are going to try it out. If not, I guess that will be $40 down the drain.
