Group Swim Lessons
FAC offers Group Swim Lessons with 3 different levels to encourage progression! Group Swim Lessons are offered mostly in the summer month May-Aug – check our website or with the front desk for Fall, Winter, and Spring lessons. Registration forms for Group Swim Lessons are available on our website under “YOUTH ACTIVITIES” – “REGISTRATION FORMS”
Red Level – Designed for children with little to no water experience. This class will introduce safety around water and basic swimming skills. Skills introduced include blowing bubbles, breath control, proper kicking techniques, floating, etc.
Yellow Level – Designed for children with some water experience. Children in this class should feel comfortable going underwater. This class will offer practice of the skills learned in Red Level and introduce new skills including arm strokes for freestyle and backstroke, rolling over to float and rest while swimming, breathing to the side, and treading water.
Green Level – Designed for children who can swim on their own but need more practice to develop efficient strokes. Children in this class should be able to swim on their own. This class will practice freestyle, backstroke, and treading water and will introduce breaststroke and diving.
Baby & Me - Designed for ages 6 months to 3 years old. This class will introduce the water and basic swimming skills to babies and parents to help develop good attitudes toward swimming! Introducing the water and having fun in the pool at a young age is beneficial to their success at the next level. This class will discuss how to keep your child comfortable in the water, basic swimming techniques, floating and submerging all while having fun!
Summer Family Pool Parties
Enjoy some time in the pool with your family over summer during one of our awesome pool parties! We will be grilling hot dogs and will have fun games for everyone to play and maybe you’ll win a prize. Lifeguards will be on duty all during the party; did you know you can check your kids in with the lifeguard if they can swim 1 lap of the pool unassisted? Drop your kids off and enjoy a night out or stay and have fun too! From 5-9pm, the slide and waterfall mushroom feature will be on, come have a blast!
This is a fun, team building experience for kids ages 6-14 who can swim just 1 lap of the 25 yard pool. Participants will be taught backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly and given the opportunity to practice. This is a great introductory program to ease into a swim team or lap swimming if you have never done anything like this before. Even if you are an experienced swimmer, there is something for everyone. Try something new!
Independence Swim Test
The independence pass is for those ages 12-15 that want to use the clubs without adult supervision. To obtain this pass, pick up a packet at any kiosk at the club. You will have to meet a personal trainer at the east and west club, meet with a lifeguard for a swim test, and then complete an oral exam to ensure you are ready to be on your own.
Over summer, the swim test can be taken at the east outdoor pool with any lifeguard. From September through May, the swim test is held Thursday afternoons at 5pm at the east indoor pool with the Aquatics Manager. The lifeguard or Aquatics Manager must sign your packet to confirm this portion of the certification has been completed.
