Swimming Level Descriptions:
Parent and Child: This class will not teach toddlers to swim but is designed to help them to be more comfortable in the water. Toddlers will have the opportunity to be around children their own age in a strange new environment, while parents will learn important introductory skills that they can use outside of class with their toddlers. This class is all about having fun in the water. It is also designed to help the older toddlers prepare for the Level 1 class. **A Parent/Guardian will be required to participate in the water due to typical separation anxiety at these ages. (Recommended ages 16 months-36 months)
Level 1: Introduction to Water Skills Focus on front and back buoyancy, bubble blowing, face in water, mechanics of kicking, intro to basic strokes, safety/survival skills and self empowerment. No goggles/masks allowed. (Recommended ages 3-6)
Level 2: Fundamental Water Skills Focus on eyes open/retrieval of submerged objects, unassisted front and back floating, refine kicking, and intro to the front crawl (Freestyle) and competition backstroke. Develop breathing and safety skills. No goggles/masks allowed. (Recommended ages 5-8)
Level 3: Stroke Development Focus on treading water, the front crawl (freestyle) and the backstroke, intro to breaststroke and butterfly stroke, and feet-first/head-first entry into water. Increased swimming yardage. Goggles may be used at this level. (Recommended ages 6-9)
We keep a 1:6 ratio per class. Parent/Child classes may have higher ratios.
