Starfish Stroke School
This class is for children who are able to easily swim front stroke with 1,2,3 breathing pattern with face in the water, over arm action and strong flutter kick across the deep end of the pool. They can also tread water for at least 60 seconds in deep water. Class ratios will be 1 instructor to no more than 10 children.
The City of Phoenix has a streamlined, swim lesson registration process for Starfish Swim Lessons. You will simply select the session dates and time you would like to attend, and our talented team will do the rest!
On the first day of lessons, certified Swim Lesson Instructors will perform swim testing on each participant; assessing swimming abilities based on the Starfish Swimming Lessons Benchmarks (see below). Your child will then be placed in the appropriate class, with similarly skilled children.
