WAITLIST
S.T.A.R.R Aquafit for Sports Teams
Led by an Aquatic Therapist for sports teams to train and enhance their athletic performance for specific functional improvement. The water is helpful with offloading the joints, allowing for soft tissue recovery, and also provides vertical resistance so that athletes can have quicker agility and speed on land. This is a great addition to a team's strength and conditioning program. The general focus is to help athletes: recover after a week of training, practices, and games; learn how to move better as an athlete, and have fun by participating in a unique bonding experience for your team.  We offer Team Aqua Training in the pre-season, during the season, or as you see needed to fit within your program.
 
If you are a coach, athletic director, or manager and would like your team to participate in this fun and therapeutic clinic, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to discuss options.

S3 Montessori Swim: T(weens) in Deep Refresher Course

03-07-2022 - 12-31-2022
WAITLIST
S3 Montessori Swim:  T(weens) in Deep Refresher Course

Ages 11 & Up

The class primarily takes place in the deepwater featuring real water scenarios and survival skills.

6-60 min lessons

Every year, about 370 children and teens ages 10 to 19 drown. Many of these deaths happen in lakes or rivers, but teens can also drown in a pool

– even teens who have learned how to swim.

This program was designed by Nicole Scherbarth, mother of 4 boys, as a drowning prevention measure for her own kids who were experienced swimmers.

In a recent study by American Red Cross, 80 % of Americans said they could swim, but only 56 % of the self-described swimmers could perform all five of the basic skills that could save their life in the water. Let us help your child be safe out there in the real world. Ages 16 years and up are encouraged to take our Adult lessons.
