"My Kid Passed Gold, Now What?"

After your student has completed the gold level they will be competent in all four competitive swimming strokes: Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Butterfly. They are now considered a big fish in a little pond and are ready to pursue swimming as a competitive sport. You and your child can talk about what's next, and here are a few options for you to consider:



Happy Fish Bonus Level - Big Fish

When a swimmer passes the gold level at Happy Fish they may understand all the techniques to swim well, but may lack the repetition that is needed to build those strokes into their muscle memory. We have a bonus level at Happy Fish called the "Big Fish" level. Kids in this level continue practicing their strokes through repetition, and also learn a few new aquatic skills that aren't needed in competitive swimming. Spending some time in the Big Fish level can help solidify what they've learned in a small group environment and challenge them with a few new skills such as: swimming with their heads out of the water, sidestroke, flip turns, and helping a distressed swimmer get to safety.

Swim Team Preparation Classes

Happy Fish students who have passed the Gold level and have spent some time in the Big Fish level (or have previously been on a swim team and find swim lessons too easy) can join our Swim Team Preparation classes. These classes focus on teaching swimmers common swimming drills in order to better develop their overall stroke technique in a fun, non-stressful environment. These classes are ONLY for swimmers who can swim multiple laps without getting fatigued, AND have a good understanding of Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Butterfly.

Currently Fremont and Livermore locations offer different programs due to their individual scheduling needs.

- Fremont currently offers an 11-week session. A $10 non-refundable deposit is due to reserve a spot in the upcoming session, while the remainder of the balance will be due on the 2nd week of class provided your student stays enrolled in the session. There are no make-ups for missed classes.

- Livermore currently offers an ongoing weekly class with a monthly tuition associated. Make-ups for missed classes must be worked out with the front desk.
