Levels I: Water Exploration

PURPOSE: Orient to aquatic environment, create a sound foundation for aquatic and safety skills.

30 Minutes for $28.00/session, 6 children/class

There are no prerequisites for this class. The objective of level 1 is to help students feel comfortable in the water and to enjoy the water safely. In level 1 we teach elementary aquatic skills which students build on as they progress through the 6 Learn-to-Swim levels. At this level students also start to develop good attitudes and safe practices around the water. Students who have some experience with the water may begin the program at a higher level. Students who have had pleasant water experiences complete this level quickly. However, fear of the water may be a major issue for some students regardless of age. Before students enter the water for the first time, we acquaint them with the swimming area and explain the safety rules for our facility. We explain the buddy system and pair off students for added safety. If students are old enough, we explain and demonstrate how buoyancy helps keep them at the surface. We impress on all students, and especially younger ones, that they can and will learn to swim if they follow our directions, as long as they are willing to try out new things even skills they consider scary at first. We encourage students to explore movements in the water and observe what comes naturally to them in order to build on those strengths. Students are encouraged to ask questions so we can address any fears. Parents are also encouraged to ask questions to also help address questions their children may have as the course progresses. Throughout the course, we provide a wide variety of experiences to meet the course objectives that provide a fun and safe environment.

Levels II: Primary Skills

Purpose: Expand on fundamental aquatic locomotion and safety skills.

45 minutes for $30.00/session, 6 children/class

Students entering this course must have a level 1 certificate or must be able to demonstrate all the completion requirements in level 1. The objective of level 2 is to give students success with fundamental skills. Students learn to float without support and to recover to a vertical position. This level marks the beginning of true locomotive skills; where students explore alternating arm and leg actions on the front and back which lays the foundation for future strokes. Level 2 adds to the self-help and basic rescue skills began in level 1.

Levels III: Stroke Readiness

Purpose: Increase swimming skill competency: practice safety and non-swimming rescue skills.

45 minutes for $30.00/session, 6 children/class

Students entering this course must have a level 2 certificate or must be able to demonstrate all the completion requirements in level 2. The objective of level 3 is to build on the skills in level 2 by providing additional guided practice. We will teach students to coordinate the front crawl and back crawl and introduce elements of the butterfly and the fundamentals of treading water. Students should also learn rules for head first entries into the water from the side of the pool (9' or deeper). As with all skills levels there will be additional safety skills presented.

Levels IV: Stroke Development

Purpose: Develop confidence and competency in strokes and safety skills beyond preceding level: introduce breast stroke and sidestroke.

1 Hour for $32.00/session, 6-8 children/class

Students entering this course must have a level 3 certificate or must be able to demonstrate all the completion requirements. The objective of level 4 is to develop confidence in the strokes learned thus far and to improve other aquatic skills. We will help students improve these skills and increase their endurance by swimming familiar strokes (Front/Back crawl) for greater distances. We will help student's continue to build on the butterfly and introduce the elementary backstroke, breaststroke and elements of the sidestroke. Basics of turning are also introduced during this level.

Levels V: Stroke Refinement

Purpose: Continue stroke refinement: introduce butterfly, surface dives and springboard diving.

60 minutes for $32.00/session, 8 children/class

Students entering this course must have a level 4 certificate or be able to demonstrate the course requirements for level 4. The objective of level 5 is coordination and refinement of strokes. Participants refine their performance of all the strokes (Front crawl, back crawl, butterfly, breast stroke, elementary backstroke, and sidestroke) and increase their distances. Flip turns on the front and back crawl are introduced.

Level 6: Swimming and Skill Proficiency (Fitness Swimmer)

Students entering this course must have a level 5 certificate or must be able to demonstrate all the skills required to complete level 5. The objective of level 6 is to refine strokes so students swim with them with more ease, efficiency, power, and smoothness over greater distances. This course will not be taught and can best be achieved by joining a local swim team.

Diving Class: Must pass level 3 to be in this class.

30 minutes/$26 per session 8-10 kids per class.

Purpose: Provides further confidence, coordination and refinement in diving.

As children progress they will advance in levels throughout the summer.

What do I need to bring to lessons?

Please bring the necessary attire to each lesson, proper swimsuit, towel, goggles, and hair tie for longer hair. Please use the restroom before lessons so your lesson will not be interrupted. Please do not bring gum, food or drink (except water) in or around the pool.
