People ask if there’s a class that comes after Next Step that will increase their capabilities in deep water. The Deep Water Play class fills in the one gap we had remaining.
When you graduate from the teachings of the Next Step class, you have presence of mind for being in deep water. You understand how it works and you’re no longer afraid in a pool. You can bob indefinitely and you can play the “Stay Away from the Side” game indefinitely. You stop playing out of boredom, not fear.
Deep Water Play means understanding how to move your body and the water to go where you want to go, becoming completely free (except for the SCUBA tank of air). It increases your presence in the full water column. The point of the DWP class is to become nimble in water: to “find" your hands, to master your nose, to use your body effectively so that you can pick up a dime at the bottom of the deep end; swim under water; change directions under water; go upward, downward, backward and forward; play like a kid; feel free.
We designed this class to be a 4-day weekend: Thursday afternoon, Friday morning and afternoon, Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning so you can be home that night. This class is $875. Early registration discount of $50 if you register four months in advance.
The prerequisite is that you can bob in the deep end and play the “Stay Away from the Side” game indefinitely except for the feeling, “That’s enough already!" If you meet those requirements, you’re eligible. If not, please re-take the Next Step class.
You must be unafraid in deep water to take this class.
You can play the "staying away from the side and bottom" game indefinitely in the deep end.
