About This Activity

Lessons are for children ages 5-18. Please use the following descriptions to determine the skill level that would be appropriate for your child. Children with no swimming experience should be placed in Level I. Children should be able to accomplish the skills described in Level I in order to be placed in Level II, and so on. We will spend a small portion of the first class testing those children whose parents are uncertain what skill level would be appropriate for their child, but most children will be pre-registered in a skill level; therefore, instruction can begin right away. Some placement adjustments may be needed in the first few classes if parents have either over- or underestimated their child's ability Level I: Water Exploration submerge face, blow bubbles supported float: back, front enter/exit water independently navigate comfortably at pool side alternating arms action supported kicking: front, back , basic safety Level II: Primary Skills hold breath, retrieve objects unsupported float: back, front rhythmic breathing jump into shallow end unassisted flutter kick: front, back back flutter kick with some arm action: 5 yds basic safety Level III: Stroke Readiness retrieve objects, eyes open bobbing, complete submersion jump into deep water dive from side of pool prone & supine glide back, front crawl: 10 yds each elementary back kick basic safety Level IV: Stroke Development elementary back: 10 yds sculling front crawl: 25 yds back crawl: 25 yds breaststroke, kick sidestroke kick tread water: 2 minutes rescue breathing basic safety
