INTRO TO SWIMMING: This level is for children ages 6-36 months. One adult/guardian (over 18 years of age) must be in the water with the child. Helps develop swimming readiness by leading adult/guardian and child in water exploration activities with the objective of having fun and becoming comfortable in and around the water.
STARFISH: COMFORT: (Ages 3 and up) This level is for those who are brand new to swimming or who have no prior swim lessons. In this class, children learn to hold their breath, blow bubbles with mouth and nose, and put their faces in the water. They will learn basic floats and glides on front and back and learn to move independently using an assistive swim belt. They also develop a bond with and trust for their instructor, as they build the courage to jump from the stairs to their instructor.
BASIC SWIM SKILLS/ SWIM MOVEMENTS: This level will teach bobbing, review front and back floats and glides, and teach all the leg and arm movements of the freestyle, backstroke, elementary backstroke, and breaststroke
FREESTYLE/ELEMENTARY BACK STROKE: This level reviews bobbing, introduces bobbing to safety, rolling over in the water, tuck floats, and finning. Students will learn to independently swim the freestyle and elementary back stroke.
BACKSTROKE/BREASTSTROKE: This level reviews treading and front and back floats and glides with recovery. It introduces surface dives. Students will learn to independently swim the backstroke and breaststroke.
STROKE REFINEMENT: This level takes all the skills the student has learned in previous levels and uses them to have the student swim the length of the pool (15 meters) in all 4 strokes. The level introduces kneeling dives, rotary breathing, dolphin kicks and underwater streamline glides to prep those who may move onto a swim team program.
All four strokes are evaluated and corrected with the use of drills and coach instruction. The goal of this class is to help swimmers improve stroke technique and teach drills that will enable the continued refinement of the strokes. NOW OFFERING A DROP IN OPTION!!!
