Starfish Swimming Lessons
The Bloomingdale Park District is pleased to partner with the Starfish Aquatics Institute to offer a complete swim lesson curriculum. In addition to boasting you child’s self esteem and providing a great form of fun, this program will teach participants how to be safe in and around the water. Classes are available for infants, children, and tweens and are taught by Starfish certified instructors. Below is a description of each level. Sessions include 8 classes and makeup dates when available that will be used if one of the 8 classes is cancelled due to inclement weather. Levels separate children by ability and recommended ages. Children progress at individual rates with the opportunity to learn the core swimming skills in each level. Children can pass each level once they complete their level’s swim and safety skill benchmark. Students work toward development of the five core swimming competencies and receive color stage awards for each achievement!
Our swim programs will be listed with details in our Summer 2024 program guide.
