• Swim Lessons, Winter 2019


    Introduces parents and child to water. Parents will safely work with their child in the water, learning to support and hold their child in the water and encourage their child to participate in new skills. All non-potty-trained children will be required to wear a tight-fitting swim diaper.

    Level 1

    Participants who have had very little or no swim instruction. The participant cannot put face in the water or paddle, lie on back, or jump in without assistance.

    Level 2

    The participant must be able to comfortably put their face in the water and blow bubbles, jump in without assistance, paddle on the front, and float on back (with ears in water). Class will introduce aquatic locomotion skills, simultaneous and alternating arm/leg action on front and back, and to continue to advance and build on the basic skills that the child will continue to build on as they progress to next level.

    Level 3

    This is an intermediate-advanced level class. The goal of class is to develop participants’ confidence in the strokes learned thus far and to improve other aquatic skills. Focus will be on increasing endurance by swimming familiar strokes (front crawl, elementary backstroke), and adding sidestroke, back crawl, breaststroke, butterfly, and basics of turning at the wall.
