Listed below are the class levels and the skills that will be taught

Preschool 10:00 am – 10:30 am
The purpose of this class is to help children ages 4 - 5 feel comfortable in the water for the first time without a parent. It orients children to the aquatic environment, helps them gain greater independence in their skills and develop more comfort in and around the water. Children will learn to enter the water on their own, follow the directions of the instructor, and gain basic swimming propulsive skills by learning to fully submerge and hold breath, bob, blow bubbles and float with assistance.

Level I – Introduction to Water Skills 10:30 am – 11:00 am
Children ages 4 and older learn to enter and exit the water using ladder, steps or side, to blow bubbles through mouth and nose, to bob, to open eyes underwater and retrieve submerged objects. While learning front and back glides and floats, recovery to vertical position and to roll from front to back and back to front, children begin to develop comfort in the water. Other skills include alternative and simultaneous leg actions and arm actions on front and back, treading water using arm and hand actions and combined arm and leg actions on front and back. Minimum age is 4.

Level II – Fundamental Aquatic Skills 11:00 am – 11:30 am
Success with fundamental aquatic skills begins in level II as children learn to enter and exit water by stopping or jumping from the side, fully submerge and hold breath, bob, open eyes under water and retrieve submerged objects. Children learn front, jellyfish and tuck floats, front and back glides and floats, how to recover to vertical position, change direction of travel while swimming on front or back, and how to roll from front to back and back to front.

Level III – Stroke Development 11:30 am - 12:00 pm
Building on the skills introduced in level II through additional guided practice in deeper water, children learn to enter water by jumping from side, back float, survival float, rotary breathing, and headfirst entry into the water from the side in sitting and kneeling positions. Flutter, scissor, dolphin and breaststroke kicks on front will be introduced along with front crawl, elementary backstroke and treading water.
