Parent & Child Swimming Classes for the Greater Buffalo, NY Area
Get Wet Parent & Child Class
Get Wet is our introductory class for children between the ages of 6 months and 3 years old. At 3 years old, we believe that children will do well in a class without a parent. Until that time we want the support and loving nature of a parent or caregiver experiencing the water with the child. Swimming lessons can be a great way you as a parent can bond with your child, as milestone moments are best experienced together. When you attend swimming classes with your younger child, they often feel more comfortable and confident to learn and progress through the specific swimming lessons.
In the Get Wet class we hope:
- To provide an opportunity for an adult and young child to have FUN together in the water and group swimming lessons.
- To educate the parents on how to work with their child in the water and begin to teach basic water safety skills with an emphasis on having FUN and developing comfort in the water.
- Our intent is for each child to have an opportunity to enjoy the water with someone who loves them, which will make an easy transition to swimming lessons with an instructor and no parent.
Parent / Child Pre-Beginner Class
The Parent / Child Pre-Beginner is Step 2 of our AMAZING Get Wet Program!
The Parent / Child Pre-Beginner Class will introduce students to the skills of a Pre-Beginner class while utilizing the parent as a child’s first teacher. Parent / Child Pre-Beginner is designed as the next step for those participating in the Get Wet program and as a way to catch young children that may not be ready for the Pre-Beginner swimming classes even though they have met the age requirement of 3. By continuing to enroll your children in swimming lessons, you will allow them to continue to progress into higher swim school levels, eventually producing a strong and confident swimmer.

“I was first introduced to the sport of swimming through the very same water safety instruction we offer at the Michael Phelps Swim School, and am proud to now be in a position where we can make this great programming available to even more people through the affiliation with Velocity Aquatics.”
