Default Swim Lessons?

Anyone know where we can get some swim lessons for a soon to be 4yr old in the Milton area? We did the UWF deal and it was an absolute waste of money from a "Lessons" stand point. He does know how to blow bubbles and kick his feet in the water...oh wait he knew how to do that before hand. Really they got to many kids per teacher to be effective. If they would cap it at 4 kids per teacher they could get some progress. 7-8 kids squeezed into 30 mins is to much.

Does SR Christian School still have them?
Thanks for the help!

I'm probably not much help, but. I was on the swim team at school and guarded for swim nights. Maybe you've already checked but you're local schools and some fitness clubs holds open nights. We ran free lessons for all ages and handycaps. Glad your proactive, never to young. Good Luck.

Sea Stars Swim team (Robin Heller) does private lessons. She can caome to you if you have a pool, and knows her stuff! Her husband Chaz is a member on here as well (hellerhighwater).

Not in Milton but Pensacourt on Langley did have private swim lessons when my daughter was small. I thought the lady was pretty good.

I'm pretty sure all YMCA's give lessons. I just went through the same thing with Zach and swim lessons sucking. The way zach learned was a combo of 2 things. First I went out of town for 2 weeks. That took the daddy pressure off him. Second is we took him a lot to public pools with kids. Zach just being a competitive kid taught him how. He went from the same place your kids at to touching the bottom with his hands at about 4'. So if it were me I would take him to a public pool at least 3 times a week and don't push anything. Really step away if he is with other kids. Just stay close enough to save his butt.
