Parent & Preschooler: Intro to Water

This level is designed for parents/guardians of children up to 5 years of age (that are fully potty trained) to actively participate in their kids’ swim lessons.  Basic skills of entering and exiting the water, floats and bubble blowing will be taught.  This not only helps increase the child’s comfort level in the water but can help parents understand the process and practice skills with their kids in between classes.

This level is designed for those who are comfortable in the water and have some basic skills.  Students will be taught swimming using combined stroke on front and back, bobbing, treading water and front and back glides.

Level 3: Stroke Development

This level is designed for the student who has mastered the skills in Level 2.  Students will learn the front and back crawl, glides, kneeling or standing dive, rotary breathing and butterfly kick and body motion.
