We may live in a dry place but we still have many bodies of water. So no matter your age, it’s never a bad idea to take swim lessons. Learning how to swim properly is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your children, and it’s a great idea to start young. There are few things worse than having to worry about your little one being by a pool because they don’t know how to swim. Let’s DIVE into some of the best places to go for swim lessons in Pueblo.
The City of Pueblo Parks and Recreation has brought back learn-to-swim lessons through a partnership with Starfish Aquatic Institute. Their mission is to reduce drownings and save lives. Sessions are offered throughout the summer at both the City Park Pool and Aguilera Park Pool. With various times, there is sure to be one that fits into your family’s schedule.
Looking for an indoor option you can do any time of the year? The Pueblo YMCA would be the option for you. In their state-of-the-art aquatics center, Y-certified swim instructors provide the best swim lesson experience you can get. They have their classes broken down by age and then ability level. This will ensure that you’re child starts on the right path and learns all the necessary skills to be a proficient swimmer. In addition to their group classes, you can get individualized attention to improve or acquire a specific swimming skill with private swim lessons.
Another option for indoor lessons is through the Pueblo County Aquatics Academy. Operating out of the Pueblo County High School Swimming Pool, they offer swim lessons for all ages and levels. They pride themselves on providing individual attention for each student in their small classes and using locally trained and certified coaches.
Pueblo Swim Club is a partner with the Make a Splash initiative. Their aim is to provide the opportunity for every child in America to learn to swim. With this focus, they make sure to maintain an instructor-to-student ratio of 1 to 5 or better. These trained instructors are attentive, caring, and understanding of your child and their needs in order to succeed. They emphasize excellent swimming techniques including body position and breathing skills. They also are an indoor option, operating from the CSU-Pueblo pool. The nice thing about indoor lessons is less worry about how often you need to apply sunscreen to your kiddo.
