SWIM LESSON CLASS LEVELS

SWIM STARTERS (AGES 6 MONTHS-3 YEARS)

Parents accompany their infant or toddler in the water, exploring fundamentals like blowing bubbles, back floats and essential safety around water skills.



SWIM BASICS (AGES 3-5)

Swimmers will progress through classes that help teach safety around the water, increase comfort with underwater exploration, introduce self-rescue skills, encourage forward movement and momentum. Classes will also introduce rhythmic breathing with integrated movements.


SWIM STROKES (AGES 6-12)

Swimmers that have advanced beyond Swim Basics will progress through learning techniques for front crawl, back crawl, breaststroke kick, butterfly kick and elementary backstroke. Safety skills are reinforced through continued work on treading water and sidestroke. More advanced swimmers will refine technique for all major competitive strokes.
