TIGERS is a basic water safety class for kids in the community ages 4-12. The goal of TIGERS is to teach children how to identify and avoid dangerous situations in the water and help children learn basic swimming techniques that will allow them to be more comfortable in the water.
TIGERS is an acronym designed to help children learn the basics of water safety:
T - Touch the bottom
I - Investigate for Danger
G - Go feet first the first time
E - Ease into the water
R - Release the wall
S - Swim safely using a good technique
All of our instructors are Water Safety Instructor (WSI) certified under the American Red Cross certification program and they are dedicated to provide both a fun and educational class for children in our community.
TIGERS takes place two times a year in the spring and the fall. All classes are taught at the Drayson Center Aquatic Facilities and are 30 minutes long. The program lasts about two weeks and kids are placed in different levels based on skills and number of years they have been swimming.
Registration for TIGERS Water Safety classes is currently closed.
