About This Activity

Description

During this session instructors will differentiate instruction to maximize session outcomes for all levels. All swimming abilities welcome.

Swim Basics for Teen/Adult

Students learn personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning two benchmark skills: swim-float-swim (sequencing front glide, roll, back float, roll, front glide, and exit) and jump-push-turn-grab.

In Water Acclimation, Water Movement, and Water Stamina, students are taught the recommended skills for all to have around water including safe water habits, underwater exploration, and how to swim to safety and exit in the event of falling into a body of water. Activities, games, and drills, geared to reinforce learning, are utilized heavily as students progress in this skill-based
approach to swimming.

Stage Descriptions:
1 / Water Acclimation Increases comfort with underwater exploration and introduces basic self-rescue skills performed with assistance.

2 / Water Movement Encourages forward movement in water and basic self-rescue skills performed independently.

3 / Water Stamina Develops intermediate self-rescue skills performed at longer distances than in previous stages.

Swim Strokes for Teen/Adult

Having mastered the fundamentals, students learn additional water safety skills and build stroke technique, developing skills that prevent chronic disease, increase social-emotional and cognitive well-being, and foster a lifetime of physical activity.

In Stroke Introduction, Stroke Development and Stroke Mechanics, swimmers are introduced to the four competitive swimming strokes as well as rescue skills and healthy lifestyle habits.


Please bring a bathing suit, towel, and goggles (if desired).
NO MAKEUPS OR REFUNDS WILL BE PROVIDED IF YOU MISS A CLASS.
