Our mission is to shape SEALs - Safe, Effective, Aquatic Learners who have respect for, and confidence in the water.
Kristine's extensive knowledge of physiology and motor learning, gleaned from her years of education and experience as a physical therapist, is instrumental in her teaching approach. She's able to effectively teach students with a wide array of developmental abilities, making her one of the most sought-after instructors in the industry.
All lessons at Seal Team Survival Swim and PT are one-on-one and individualized to each student's unique learning style and developmental abilities.
Generally speaking, lessons are appropriate for children as young as 6 months old who are sitting up independently. Every child learns to rollback to a floating position, the most critical aquatic survival skill. In addition to the survival rollback to float, children who have been walking for a few months can typically learn to swim a short distance before they roll to their back for air. Those that are developmentally ready learn to flip back over and swim to an exit point.
New students attend lessons 5 days per week (Monday-Friday). Each lesson is a maximum of 10 minutes long. These short, frequent lessons maximize learning efficiency and retention and capitalize on the way young children lear motor skills. It takes approximately 4-6 weeks for a child to master survival swim skills.
