We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Saturday, October 15, 2016.
Prerequisite: All participants must be evaluated by pool staff prior to registration. Participants must successfully pass or be competent in all skills and objectives for Tiny Tot. Returning participants need to contact pool staff to ensure the correct prerequisite skills are listed on their SDRecConnect account otherwise, ActiveNet will not allow you to register for any upper level lessons). If this is your first time registering for lessons with the City of San Diego you will need to contact pool staff to schedule a swim assessment and if needed, help create an SDRecConnect account.
Objectives: This class is designed for participants to become proficient in fundamental aquatic skills, and to introduce more advanced safety concepts and skills. Goggles are not allowed for this level.
Skills: Safety concepts, following directions, entering and exiting pool, breath control, rhythmic breathing, multiple front and back floats, retrieve object from chest deep water, jumping in to pool, front and back glides, front and back flutter kicking, roll over from front glide to back float, freestyle arm strokes, side breathing, and porpoise dives (pool depth permitting).
Please contact pool staff to verify prerequisite skills are correct on your SDRecConnect account. There are NO REFUNDS. Full refunds will be granted only if class is cancelled by the Pool Manager.
Younger children may not progress as quickly as older children because their strength, coordination, and understanding of processes are developed at individual rates. An appropriate swimsuit is required at all times. A parent or responsible adult must remain in the spectator area at all times. Swim diapers are required for children under 4 years old regardless of toilet training.
