Introduction Level 1: In this course students will learn safety and fun ways of the water. Students will learn the safety of shallow water floating and progress to a front crawl movement. In addition, they will learn how to back float and forward movement techniques. Intermediate Level 2: By now, swimmers should be comfortable in both shallow and deep water, with front crawl and back crawl. In addition, lessons will include treading water and bi-lateral breathing while swimming 25 yards. An introduction to breaststroke and flip turns will be taught. Advanced Level 3: Develop stroke and technique, and learn various ways to become stronger with a more proficient stroke. Learn a correct warm-up and cool-down, and swim high intensity sets. Different drills will be used to improve in competitive stroke, freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. In addition, swimmers can train on technique and practice swimming for open water events.
All participants will be registered into one class and divided by appropriate level on the first day of class. This is the Level I Session 1 course.
