LEVEL 1: Ultra Beginning

5-Day Course

The 5-Day Ultra Beginner course in Sarasota, Florida consists of eight 3-hour classes focused on healing your fear of water, rather than managing it through traditional swim lessons. This class begins in a 1-2 foot deep pool and allows more time for the basics of being in the water.

Ultra Beginning Course – Sarasota 5-Day

The Ultra Beginning class is for those who would like to learn more slowly than others who are afraid in water. There is no one who cannot learn to float in 2 feet of water. First, of course, you'll learn to be comfortable putting your face in water. We have this depth available at the special pools where we teach Beginning 1. Adjacent to the shallow pool is another pool of regular depth for learning further comfort, safety, and skills.

A week just for you and your swimming. Immerse yourself in our teaching and get answers to all your questions about swimming and water safety. Learn comfort, skills, and safety unavailable elsewhere. The Beginning 1 class is the exact same course as Beginning 2 but it proceeds more slowly and doesn't teach the same extent of skills. After Beginning 1, a student usually progresses to Beginning 2 (as opposed to going directly to Next Step). As always, you go at your own pace.
