Welcome to Mermaid University! Our famous Mermaid training is now available for Ages 8 and up! Adults don't be shy we have tails in your sizes too! This super fun program is taught by none other than Divine Mermaid herself, a fully certified mega experienced Aquatics Instructor and Mermaid mentor. Our levels are carefully designed to teach confident swimmers the unique tricks and techniques required to don and swim effortlessly in their very own mermaid tail!
Beginner Mermaid Class
Our beginner class is designed to introduce swimmers to an advanced swim skill known as "the dolphin kick". When done correctly it is extremely fun and a serves as great core workout! We introduce our eager mermaids to the nifty little piece of equipment called a monofin which gives a "mermaid tail" its propulsion in the water. We focus on proper monofin technique before donning the full "skin" of the tail. Most beginner Mers primarily use this level to work on and master their monofin technique, however we are constantly surprised to find that many of our students are able to don and play for a short time in the full mermaid tail skin. We try to capture our Mermaid's success in a few fun photos and each student receives a certificate of achievement at the end of their program!
Intermediate Mermaid Class
The intermediate level is all about the tail! Students practice Mermaid Tail safety and how to use and care for their mermaid tails as well as how to quickly get out of their tail in the water if they need to. Safety is always our number one priority so students are required to bring a pair of properly fitting goggles in order to navigate with their tails underwater. We play mermaid games, learn new mermaid tricks and share many mermaid "secrets" in this class. Designed to polish the basic mermaid skills and build underwater endurance, we also introduce mermaids to some basic free diver breathing techniques. Anyone with dolphin kick training or experience is welcome to jump straight into our Intermediate Class! Participants receive a special certificate of achievement and some cool underwater mermaid pics from their experience!
Advanced Mermaid Class
This is the pinnacle! The fusion of grace and total underwater comfort and confidence! Advanced Mers practice the next level in breathing techniques that help them stay calm cool and collected as they attempt more difficult tricks and Mermaid techniques. In addition to refining their underwater and surface performance, students also learn some handy underwater modelling tips for relaxing through their body and face so they can smile for the underwatervcamera without the use of goggles! All is revealed in our advanced level, including pro advice on how to select, make or invest in the perfect Mermaid Tail / equipment for each individual. Divine Mermaid shares her trade secrets and all graduates of the advance program are automatically granted SPECIAL Pod Member status. Students receive VIP access to "secret" merchandise grottos & collections as well as discounts and promotions on Parties, Retreats, Camps and MORE! Of course we include a sweet photo pack and a fancy certificate of achievement!
