FitRec is proud to partner with Ellis & Associates in offering group swim lessons to children. As a national learn to swim program, Ellis & Associates, follows a 6 level program starting with Preschooler and finishing at Advanced (ages 3 to 13). Our coaches are selected based on their own swim skills and desire to work with children. Our coaches are provided training and guidance during our semester workshops, during weekly meetings and on the deck under direction from our Site Coordinator.

Our program focuses on learning skills in a logical order, so students know proper air exchange, body position and streamline starting with the first level. As students advance, technique is the primary focus so good motor skill is practiced and developed. Safety is a reoccurring message in all levels with an age-appropriate skill or lesson. Swimming lessons are the building blocks to enjoying water activities, joining a swim team or improving your fitness levels by swimming laps!
