Mini Cuda Group Swim Lessons


Mini-Cudas are the youngest swimmers, learning to blow bubbles, float, begin stroke technique, etc. We are accepting older 3s, 4s and 5s and some 6s. Swimmers tend to be on the younger side for Mini Cudas, but we do have some older swimmers and they are grouped according to age and ability within each class. If your child is on the older side and has some swimming skills you may want to consider pre-team. Note: pre-team is a team that meets for 4 consecutive weeks. You cannot register week by week for that program. Mini Cudas allows for registration on a weekly basis. You choose which weeks you would like and register individually for each week.

A parent or child care provider must be on the pool deck at all times during the Mini-Cuda classes. 

Class size is limited to 12 students. Mini-Cudas is designed for those relatively new to swimming. This is a group format with a ratio of approximately 1 coach to every 3 - 4 swimmers. 

Swimmers MUST be comfortable getting in the water AND comfortable separating from parents. We ask our coaches to focus on swimmers in the water. In this group format, we ask coaches NOT to coax children who aren't quite ready. If your child is not there yet, no problem. Ask about private lessons instead. All of our excellent coaches are available for private lessons to be scheduled at a mutually agreeable time.

We will offer 4 one-week sessions. You pick a time slot and come each weekday at that time for a group lesson. Sign up for 1, 2, 3, or 4 weeks...whatever works for you. Knowing that all children learn through repetition, the program will be structured with the same format and skill targets each week.

Cost for a 1-week session: $75 (Session 3 is prorated to $60 due to the July 4th Holiday)

Session 1: June 15 - June 19 (registration window closes June 8th)

Session 2: June 22 - June 26 (registration window closes June 15th)

Session 3: June 29 - July 3 (registration window closes June 22nd - no practice 7/3)

Session 4: July 6 - July 10 (registration window closes June 29th)

Registration will close 8 days prior to the start of any given session at 2pm. This will allow us time to properly staff each class. There will be no exceptions, so be sure to sign up early!

AM session offered at: 1015-1100 in the middle pool

PM sessions offered at: 315-400, 400-445, or 445-530 in the middle pool

Please keep in mind there are no make-ups or credits for any Mini Cuda sessions that are missed for any reason or that are cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control including but not limited to weather events and unscheduled pool closures.

We will host a Mini Meet and a special Nemo awards night on Tuesday July 8 for anyone who has participated in Mini Cudas or Pre-Team. Mark your calendar now and save the date!
