Mermaid University

Every kid wants to be a mermaid at some point! SCSC is now offering a unique mermaid program just for those kids! A Mermaid Swim class allows participants to experience swimming like a mermaid. Swimmers learn to wear the mermaid tail and monofin and swim in the dolphin motion of a mermaid.

Mermaid 101 Clinics

Our Mermaid 101 clinics are for first-time mermaids. During these 30-minute clinics, swimmers will learn the basics of swimming like a mermaid, water safety, & tail and fin care. All participants must pass the Mermaid Swim Test to join Mermaid 101. Deck Supervisors can complete the Mermaid Swim Test during a regular swimming lesson or contact our office to schedule a time for your swimmer to come in and complete the test.

Fees: $30 per participant (includes $5 non-refundable registration fee); $15 rental fee for tail and monofin (tails and monofins can also be purchased)

Upside down mermaidLength of Class: 30 minutes, one time

Student/Teacher Ratio: 6 mermaids per 1 teacher

Equipment: All participants must wear a one-piece suit. We recommend goggles and a swim cap, to keep hair out of the face. Swimmers can rent a Fin Fun mermaid tail and monofin for this class. These are also available to purchase in our retail store and is highly recommended for anyone planning on continuing into advanced classes.
