Levels & Descriptions
This class is designed to give young children a chance to have fun exploring the water. Children will be introduced to front and back floats, front and back glides, and flutter kicking with barbells.
This class is designed to build on the skills learned in the beginner preschool class. Children will begin learning breath control and combined leg and arm action on both front and back.
Introduction to Water Skills: This class will help participants learn to feel comfortable and enjoy the water safely. Students will learn breath control, treading water, front and back floats, front and back glides, combined leg and arm action on both front and back, and how to retrieve a submerged object.
Fundamental Aquatic Skills: This level will help participants learn to perform floats, glides, and treading water without support. Students will begin skills in stroke locomotion (front crawl and elementary backstroke).
Stroke Development: This class will help participants refine the front crawl, elementary backstroke, and treading water. Students will be introduced to the front crawl breathing, the scissors and dolphin kicks as well as rules for safe diving.
Stroke Improvement: This level will help participants increase their endurance by swimming familiar strokes for greater distances. Students will learn the sidestroke, butterfly, back crawl, breaststroke, and open turns.
Stroke Refinement: This class will promote continued coordination and refinement of the strokes learned in previous levels over greater distances. Students will learn the flip turn and surface dives. Diving from the side of the pool will be reviewed.
Swimming and Skills Proficiency: This course is designed for those that want to improve their endurance while still participating in a structured setting. To pass Level 6, students must swim 500 yards front crawl (among other things). This is a challenging class but is perfect for those that have passed Level 5 and/or want to get ready to join a swim team.
