What happens in Learn-to-Swim Level 3?
In Learn-to-Swim Level 3 - Stroke Development, our instructors follow a plan to introduce new swimming and water safety skills and build on previously learned skills. Each class is loaded with fun, engaging and challenging activities that motivate children to want to perform and learn to swim. Some of the milestones in Learn to Swim Level 3 include:
- Jumping into deep water from the side.
- Swimming the front crawl and/or elementary backstroke for 25 yards.
- Maintaining position by treading or floating for 1 minute.
- Swimming front crawl for 15 yards and swimming elementary backstroke for 15 yards.
It is common for children to participate in several sessions of Learn to Swim Level 3 before they successfully demonstrate each skill. That is okay! It is not important how quickly they move through a level, but that they acquire each skill.
