Swim Lessons

Swim Lessons - (Ages 4 & Up)

General Swim Lessons are for participants who are looking to gain comfort in the water or improve their skills. Lessons are broken down into levels 1 through 6. Participants should register for the level that best suits their child's skill level based on the descriptions below. Swimmers may be moved to a different level after the first day of the lesson based on their abilities.

WAVE A

Level 1 - Water Exploration

Orientation to an aquatic environment supported floating and kicking on front and back, alternating arm action, and basic water safety rules.


Level 2 - Primary Skills

Concentration on exploring deep water, front and back glides (unsupported), and safety practices. Additional focus on back crawl (at least 5 yards), as well as the ability for the child to turn over front to back and back to front.


Level 3 - Stroke Readiness

Increase swimming skill competency, fundamentals of elementary backstroke, exploring deep water, introduction of dives from the side of the pool, and treading water with secondary focus on practicing safety and rescue skills.



WAVE B

Level 4 - Stroke Development

Develop confidence and competency in strokes beyond preceding levels. Introduction of breaststroke and sidestroke, deep-water bobbing, diving from the side of pool from stride and standing positions, and turns at the wall.


Level 5 - Stroke Refinement

Continue refinement of front crawl, back crawl, elementary backstroke, breaststroke and sidestroke. Introduction of butterfly and surface dives, alternate breathing, swimming under water, and open turns on front and back.


Level 6 - Skill Proficiency

Develop maximum efficiency and endurance for strokes, flip turns, tuck and pike surface dives, alternative kicks for treading water, as well as introduction to approach stroke and throwing rescues. Swimmers should be ready for competitive swimming after the completion of this level.

Swim Lesson COVID-19 FAQ's

Specific COVID-19 guidelines and drop-off/pick-up instructions will be emailed out at least one week prior to the session.


How can I sign up for swim lessons?

You can register online or by calling the Lisle Recreation Center at 630-353-4301.




Will the instructors wear face coverings in the water?

Instructors will be wearing face shields while teaching.




Do participants need to wear a face covering during swim lessons?

Children must wear a face covering upon arrival and departure. When entering the pool, face coverings are not required in accordance with local health guidelines.




How many people can accompany the child to lessons?

Please limit the number of people who accompany your child to lessons to one adult and only children who are taking part in the lessons. This will help parents maintain appropriate social distancing. Younger siblings will need to stay with their guardian and remain socially distanced from others while at the facility. Parents and siblings are welcome to wait in the designated waiting area, or can drop their participant off and then leave the facility.




Are face coverings required for parents?

Those fully vaccinated are not required to wear face coverings when entering and exiting the facility, in the locker rooms and restrooms, and in the sand play area. You are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after the administration of the final dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. By not wearing a face covering, you are acknowledging that you have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19.




Will the locker rooms be available?

The locker rooms and restrooms will be available. However, we encourage guests to come dressed and ready to swim and keep locker room use to a minimum at this time.




Will my child be paired with participants from a different household?

For group lessons, participants will be grouped with children from other households. For semi-private lessons, your child may be paired with another swimmer of similar ability. To prevent your child from being paired with other participants in other households, private lessons are available and are an excellent option that can be customized for your swimmer’s needs.



 

What is the procedure if it's raining?

Sea Lion Aquatic Park Swim lessons are determined based on the impact Lisle’s weather has on the safety of our students and instructors. Cancellations will be made if thunder or lightening is spotted in the area, and under certain circumstances for rain in the area. Rain based cancellations are based on lifeguards’ ability to perform their job.

Please call the daily pool update number at 630-964-3410 ext. 2, 2,2, 30-minutes prior to your lesson time for more information on cancellations for the day. 



 

What is the procedure if there is cold weather?

Sea Lion Aquatic Park Swim lessons are determined based on the impact Lisle’s weather has on the safety of our students and instructors. Cancellations may be made if the weather is below 68 degrees according to the National Weather Service. We understand that the weather may feel cold at or slightly below 68 degrees, but we will still attempt to hold lessons. Refunds will not be given if lessons are being held but you choose not to send your child due to weather related issues. In the event that the temperature falls too low and you are wondering if we will be holding lessons, I encourage you to call the daily pool update number at 630-964-3410, ext. 2, 2, 2. This information will be updated each morning as well as throughout the morning if there are any changes to the original update.
