Our swim program

Where giggles & goggles unite

Diventures is all about safety and fun in the water. We help our swimmers develop important safety skills, learn to swim and enjoy the pool, and build a passion for the oceans and marine health.

Our award-winning swim program features curriculum from internationally-accredited Swim Schools International (SSI). Our certified teachers strive to improve each swimmer’s confidence through repetition of skills and by giving them the personalized attention they need to become successful swimmers.

Swim levels

Classes are divided by skill level and age so your swimmer is with peers at a similar stage.

Baby — Beginner

For infants (2 months and older) to toddlers (up to 35 months). Parents are in the water with baby to help teach safety and swim skills and bond with their child.

Baby — Independence

For swimmers 18 months to 35 months who have graduated from the Baby – Beginner class. Parents are not in the water and we focus on safety skills and swimming independently.

Level 1 — Beginner

This class prepares swimmers to float, swim short distances, get comfortable going underwater, and safely get out of the pool. We offer different classes for age 3, ages 4 & 5, and ages 6 to 15.

Level 1 — Advanced

This class teaches kids how to swim for 20 feet with windmill arms and independent rollovers. We offer different classes for age 3, ages 4 & 5, and ages 6 to 15.

Level 2

For kids 6 to 15 years who can swim 20 feet independently. Swimmers will learn rollover and side breathing and backstroke, while gaining endurance so they can swim 40 feet independently.

Level 3 — Intermediate

For kids 6 to 15 years who can swim 40 feet independently. Swimmers will learn technical skills and work on endurance so they can swim backstroke and freestyle 25 yards with an attempted flip turn.

Level 3 — Advanced

For kids 6 to 15 years who can swim 25 yards independently. Swimmers will work to master the four competitive strokes and swim 100 yards with confidence and flip turns.

Swim Team Prep

For kids 6-15 years who have established all four competitive strokes and flip turns. We prep students for swim meets and/or competitive teams by focusing on stroke refinement, technique, speed, and strength across long distances.

Adult — Beginner

For anyone 16 and older with minimal swimming experience. We’ll work on gaining comfort, floating, treading, and–when you’re ready–swimming 20 yards. 

Adult — Advanced

For anyone 16 and older who is comfortable in the water, but wants to build confidence, endurance, and technique. We can help increase treading time and achieve longer distances in both freestyle and backstroke.

Swimming FAQs

What do I need to bring to swimming classes?

All you need to bring is a bathing suit, towel, and swimming goggles. For children 3 and younger, or those not toilet trained, we require reusable swim diapers. Goggles and reusable swim diapers are available in our retail store.

Do you offer swim classes for infants?

Our baby and toddler swimming classes are designed for children starting as young a two-months-old. These classes are a great way to show your little one how much fun the water is! A parent will be in the pool to support and cheer their baby on during class. Your little swimmer will have fun splashing in the pool while being introduced to basic skills.

What is a good age for a child to start swimming?

Introducing your child to swim lessons at a young age is one of the most effective and important first step toward water safety. We offer swimming lessons for all ages and all skill levels, even as young as two-months-old.

Can I get my Lifeguard Certification?

Diventures offers an American Red Cross Lifeguard Certification at select locations. The certification includes First Aid, CPR, and AED training and is valid nationwide for two years. This course is available to those 15 years old and up.
