Bubblers Program (formerly called “Minis”)

The Bubbler program is designed for children ages 5-8.  This program is a daily swim lesson program offering times in both the morning and most afternoons.  This multiple day approach offers parents flexibility and swimmers the opportunity to get as many days in as they need to become confident swimmers.

Our instructors evaluate swimmers to begin at the steps they feel comfortable and to work with swimmers as they progress through each new skill.  The following are example of elements of progression:

  • Able to stand in the shallow end of the pool unassisted
  • Able to get face wet and to bob up and down in the water
  • Able to enter the water, return to the side, and climb back out
  • Able to use a kick board to do the flutter kick
  • Able to float on front and back unassisted/unsupported (3-4 feet deep)
  • Able to demonstrate freestyle and backstroke (3-4 feet deep)
  • Able to tread water for 1 minute in water over their head
  • Able to demonstrate freestyle and backstroke and to try diving into 5 feet
  • Able to demonstrate dives into 5 feet
  • Able to perform all competitive style kicks
  • Able to swim each of the competitive strokes
  • ​Swimmers who are able to swim 25 meters in deep water have the opportunity to swim in meets with our competitive swim team

For the same price, parents may bring their children as many or as few times as they like from May 30th to July 15th at the following times:

  • While Prince George’s county public school is in session (from May 30th to June 12th):
    • 5:00 pm  – 6:00 pm Monday – Friday
  • ​Once school has ended (June 13th to July 15th)
    • ​8:00 am – 9:00 am Monday – Friday
    • 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm Monday – Thursday

For an additional fee, BSR can also facilitate lessons for swimmers:

  • Who are over the age of 8 and are not ready or interested in joining the swim team
  • Who are adult swimmers
  • Who, regardless of age,  would prefer to have private lesions
  • Or anytime after the Bubblers program is over on July 15th
