Learn-To-Swim Course Description

 

Parent & Child Aquatics (Ages 6 months – 4 years old) – A parent or guardian is required to accompany each child in the water and participate in the classes. Parent and Child Aquatics introduces infants and young children to the water. This class is designed to get children more comfortable in the water and prepares them for Preschool aquatics. 

 

Preschool Aquatics (Age 4 years old) – When determining if preschool aquatics is appropriate for your child, consider their developmental readiness, maturity, and experience in the water. The class is designed to orient preschool age children to the aquatic environment and to help them gain basic aquatic skills. It also helps children develop basic skills to begin learning rudimentary propulsive swimming movements on both the front and back. Appropriate personal safety and rescue skills are included to help children meet safety goals. Minimum age requirement is 4 years old

 

Level 1 (Ages 5 and older) Introduction to Water Skills - This class teaches children introductory swimming skills with support from an instructor. Children will begin to develop positive attitudes, good swimming habits and safe practices in and around the water.

 

Level 2 (Ages 5 and older) Fundamental Aquatic Skills - The objective of Level 2 is to give participants success with fundamental skills. Participants learn to float without support and to recover in a vertical position. This level marks the beginning of true locomotion skills. Participants further develop simultaneous and alternating arm and leg actions on the front and back that lay the foundation for future strokes. This class takes place in 3.5 feet of water, and participants may be required to hold onto the wall.  Prerequisite: Level 1

 

Level 3 (Ages 5 and older) Stroke Development - The objective of Level 3 is to build on previously learned skills by providing additional guided practice. Participants learn the survival float; swim the front crawl and elementary backstroke. You introduce the scissors and dolphin kicks and build the fundamentals of treading water. Participants also learn rules for headfirst entries and begin to learn to enter the water headfirst from a seated position at poolside in the deep water.  Prerequisite: Level 2

 

Level 4 (Ages 5 and older) Stroke Improvement - The objectives of Level 4 are to develop participants’ confidence in the strokes learned thus far and to improve other aquatic skills.  Participants improve their skills and increase their endurance by swimming familiar strokes for greater distances.  Participants add the arms to the scissors kick for the sidestroke.  Participants also start to learn the back crawl, breaststroke and butterfly and the basics of turning at a wall.  Prerequisite: Level 3

 

Level 5 (Ages 5 and older) Stroke Refinement - The objectives of Level 5 are coordination and refinement of strokes. Participants refine their performance of all the strokes and increase the distances. Flip turns on the front and back are also introduced.  Prerequisite: Level 4
