Family Swim at Goldfish Swim School
Last night we attended Family Swim at Goldfish swim school with friends of ours. It was our first visit, but I have heard very good things from people I know whose children take lessons there.
The water is kept at a warm 90 degrees. Personally, I found the water a little too warm, but the warm temperature is definitely a plus for babies and toddlers taking lessons. Until my daughter was about 4 she could not make it through a lesson at many of the local indoor pools without blue lips and chattering teeth causing us to cut lessons short. The warmer weather at Goldfish would have been much appreciated at the time (they did not open until more recently).
The pool itself is 4′ deep. The two long sides both have a bench that runs the length. This provides a nice place for kids to sit during group lessons, or parents during Family Swim time. They also had platforms in the water. They were great for the kids to stand on, and proved great diving challenges for my daughter and her friend to swim under them. Unfortunately, they were fully underwater and not easy for parents to see who were looking at water level.
Their swim lessons are currently being offered Monday through Sunday. They have a variety of lessons ranging from parent/child classes to their pro-level. Once children graduate from the pro-level they are eligible to join their swim team.
I definitely recommend Family Swim Time at Goldfish Swim School. If you are in the market for swim lessons for your child, I recommend at least looking into Goldfish Swim School.
