Our Baby Clownfish class is for ages 6-36 months who swim with mom, dad or a caregiver. We focus on introducing your child to the pool, making them feel comfortable in the water, all while building the needed confidence for their upcoming transition to independent swimming. We work with both parent and child to equally enforce basic water skills as well as the child’s safety. We will set the foundation that the child needs for a lifetime of swimming and fun in the water.
Clownfish Green | timid, cautious around water
Our Green Clownfish is for children ages 3 and up. This is our beginner level that introduces your child to the water and basic swimming skills. We will work on going under water, proper kicking and breathing techniques. This class will set the pace for progression into advanced levels. As always, fun included!
Clownfish Yellow | confident around water
Yellow Clownfish are comfortable in the water. They are also comfortable going under water. They will learn to backfloat independently, swim horizontally, and maintain their balance in the water. In this level your child will further develop independence and confidence.
Clownfish Blue | swims independently
Our Blue Clownfish know how to backfloat independently and are able to swim on their own for 10 feet. The skills learned in previous levels will culminate in Blue Clownfish, bringing them to a new level of safety. This will also give them the confidence to begin learning and swimming new strokes.
Clownfish Red | learning swim strokes
Red Clownfish have mastered the basics from previous levels and are ready to learn strokes! We will focus on freestyle, backstroke, elementary backstroke (resting stroke), open-arm turns, and provide an introduction to diving. This level turns your child in a swimmer!
Clownfish Gold | refining swim strokes
Our Gold level will add butterfly and breaststroke to your child’s skills. They will work on drills to perfect each stroke and they will lean flip-turns, advanced diving, and treading water.
Orca Program | at instructors discretion
Our Orca Program is a swim team styled training session. It runs for one hour. In this time we will be working all four competitive strokes and perfecting the techniques needed for each. This class will not only work on all necessary skills, but will build muscle-strength and endurance in preparation for swim team.
Adult Clownfish | 18+
We love to teach adults too! Do you want to enhance your skills? Never leaned how to swim? Are you afraid of the water? Adult Clownfish is for you! We have qualified instructors that specialize in teaching adults to swim and enjoy the water. Don’t hesitate; your swimming experience with us will be great!
This place and their staff are hands-down amazing at teaching kids how to swim. They have an amazing ability to make it fun and safe and productive. My little one was shy and apprehensive and within the first few minutes was comfortable, happy, and immediately learning. They have a standard low ratio and platforms in the water I’ve never seen anywhere else. This is the best place to take your kids to learn to love to swim!!
Amazing place! The instructors here treat each kid as an individual. We’ve done lessons at public pools, rec centers and other places. Colorado Clownfish Swim Club is the best place for our kids. We will be taking our kids here from now on.
Colorado Clown Fish is truly a gem!!! My kids (4 year old twins) did more in their 30 minute trial class then they did in the 16 weeks of lessons they had at the rec center. I love supporting a family business that is passionate about teaching kids of all ages and levels how to swim! Everyone that works there is awesome! Side note…I left my cell phone and one of the staff members called my house to let me know and offered to bring to my house (so I wouldn’t have to pack up the kids) that is going way above and beyond!! Thank you for all that you do! You are a gift to our community!!
I have both of my daughters in lessons here and I’ve been very impressed. The class sizes are small and the instructors are great. The progression they use to teach the kids is logical and effective. The prices are reasonable.
Colorado Clownfish is awesome! Mr. Matt, Mrs. Diana, and Mr. Victor have a fun family run facility that we love. At age 3 our daughter transferred over from Safe Splash from what was a very rigid corporate model that didn’t really cater to our child as an individual. Here they make each lesson different and she has blossomed as a result. Now at age five she loves swimming and going to her class. We think she’s part fish.
It was only our first class but very impressed. My kiddo took right to Mr Jeff. Can’t wait to see my little one learn and grow here. My kiddo didn’t want to leave and probably played in the lobby for a half hour and Mr Cody didn’t care.
