can I start swim lessons for my kids?
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that you not begin formal
swimming lessons until kids are at least 4 years old. That is the age
that children are thought to be 'developmentally ready' for swim lessons.
That doesn't mean that the Academy opposes such programs. Younger children
can be taught to enjoy the water. MY SWIM ACADEMY teaches babies 5 months
and up, subject to pediatricians approval. Infant and toddler aquatic
programs are very popular among parents and kids. They are a good way
to teach your kids to enjoy being in the water and ultimately they learn
breath control. Our program also help teach parents how to be safe around
the water and how to interact with their kids in the water. However,
these types of programs do not decrease your child's risk of drowning
and are not a substitute for adult supervision. Please read and always
follow our safety tips.
long or how many classes does it take to learn how to swim?
Like every learning process, each kid has his/her own rhythm. The time
or quantity of classes your kid will need to learn to swim will depend
on many factors, among others age, previous experience in the water,
attitude, parent's attitude, frequency of the lessons, and last but
no least regular attendance. in any event, the idea is to always have
fun and stimulate participants while they learn. Parents should be patient,
respect kid's pace, support them and to motivate them.
many lessons per week are recommended?
makes perfect. Therefore, assistance is very important and directly
influences in the learning process. We recommend that babies under 18
months take one or two classes a week. Infants over 18 months should
ideally take two or more per week.
long are the classes?
recommended length for a private class is 30 minutes, however there
is no specific rule. Some exceptions are: private classes for babies
less than 12 months old which should take between 20 to 30 minutes;
groups of 4 or more participants, which could take up to 40 minutes;
or teens/adult classes which may last from 45 to 60 minutes.
are the children's class taught?
Classes incorporate playful activities, songs, games, didactic materials,
and physical exercises customized to the student ability. These increases
their self-assurance, help kids build their confidence in themselves
and the instructor, and improve their agility in the water.
does an adult class encompass?
Adult classes are given according to the level of each participant with
exercises designed to acquire water adjustment, adequate breathing techniques,
flotation and water displacement, stroke development, technique refinement.
We also design monthly training plans for those who want to keep in
shape, triathletes, and Master swimmers. This includes 4 week training plan and
one private class for a flat fee.
parents required to assist their children's class?
Yes, classes for babies up to 3 years as well as Mom and me classes
require a parent or guardian to be in the pool. Other than that the
presence of a parent is very positive because it makes the child feel
safe. Parents have the opportunity to see their child's development
and practice in between classes. However, sometimes some children may
be distracted, in this case we suggest to watch the class from a far.
do I need to bring for my first lesson?
don't have a pool available, could you provide one?
We might be able to provide one depending on where you are located.
Please, contact us to verify location.
cannot assist to a class, or I am going on vacation soon, do I lose
my class and my money?
The great thing about private classes is that if you cancel with
four or more hours in advance by calling 786-344-2726, we don't charge
you the class. If you go on vacation or you have to put on hold your
swim lessons for any reason, just let us know in advance. It's
that simple! Just remember if you stop for more than 4 weeks, your
times will be offered to other clients. Also, if you cannot make it
for a semi-private or group classes and the class is not canceled, then
your class will be charged.

If weather is not good you can contact us with one hour prior to our
appointment. Should it rains while lesson is in progress we will make
up the extra time when is convenient for both parties.

is the best time for my child's swim lesson ?
The best time for your child's swim lesson is when is more comfortable
for you and your kid. Always consider leaving at least 30min before

is that you can set up your best times and days! -subject to availability.
