The Rose Bowl Aquatics Center provides a positive
learning environment for your child.
In order to foster a life-long love for the water, it is vital for babies and toddlers to feel that they have choices
and that they will be allowed to learn at their own pace. Practicing patience, building trust, and encouragement are
the keys to your baby's swimming success.
Experience tells us that babies can and do swim when they are ready.
Our experienced instructors only teach safe, positive, and effective methods that parents can use to get their
babies swimming happily and safely!
Beginner Babies - Rubber Ducky
No entry level requirements are necessary. The special bond that exists between a parent and child along with singing songs,
and playing games gently expands a child's comfort level. This class builds confidence, allows the child to feel safe, happy, and
secure as they begin to explore a water environment.
Intermediate Babies - Baby Beluga
In order to enroll in intermediate a child must put his/her face in the water and blow bubbles on his/her own. Through the
use of song and games, the bond between parent and child will be strengthened. Once the child feels comfortable in the water they will eventually
learn to swim on their own.
The appropriate class that allows for an easier transition from Parent/Infant class to Preschool levels. Perfect
for babies who are not ready to be in the water without their parents, but already swimming!
What to bring
- Both parent and child must be dressed in a bathing suit
- All babies must wear an approved swim diaper (ie. Huggies Little Swimmers)
- Sunscreen must be applied 30 minutes BEFORE entering the water
