Level 1 (9-36 months)
The purpose of this class is to acquaint the child with the water and swimming. Safety will be encouraged in and around the pool. A responsible adult must enter the water with the child. Be prepared to sing songs, play games and have fun.
Children in this level should show readiness to swim unaccompanied by an adult. They should be willing to try the following skills: hold head underwater for 10 seconds, float on back and stomach, jump into water feet first and swim the width of the pool.
Children will be learning the following swimming strokes: front crawl, back crawl, and elementary backstroke. Survival swimming as well as treading and floating techniques will be introduced. Level 3 swimmers will also attempt the to dive into deep water.
Children will be developing their sidestroke and breaststroke as well as refining Level 3 skills. They will be able to demonstrate all five strokes while swimming 200-500 yards of the pool (8-20 laps). Level 4 swimmers will also be introduced to basic water safety techniques, underwater swimming and competitive diving.
