About This Activity

Description

This is a split-level class, including both Learn-to-Swim Level 2

& Learn-to-Swim Level 3.


What happens in Learn-to-Swim Level 2?

Learn to Swim Level 2 - Fundamental Aquatic Skills builds on skills learned in Level 1. 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 that are necessary for successful completion of Level 2 include:

  • Stepping from the side into chest-deep water.
  • Moving into a front float for 15 seconds, swimming on front and/or back for 5 body lengths, then safely exiting the water.
  • Moving into a back float for 15 seconds, rolling to front then recovering to a vertical position.
  • Pushing off and swimming using combined arm and leg actions on front for 5 body lengths, rolling to back and float for 15 seconds, then roll to the front then continue swimming for 5 body lengths.

It is common for children to participate in several sessions of Learn to Swim Level 2 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.


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.
