SCHOOL AGE SWIM LESSONS

SWIM BASICS

Swim Basics, for ages 5-12, are introductory classes divided into three progressive stages that include the foundations of water safety and basic swimming skills, focusing on swimming to safety. 

Stage 1: Water Acclimation

The water acclimation class introduces swimmers to the pool and helps them develop safe water habits in a fun and encouraging environment. In water acclimation, swimmers develop comfort with underwater exploration and learn to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water. This stage lays the foundation that allows for the participant’s future progress in swimming.

Stage 2: Water Movement

In this class, swimmers are taught skills that focus on body position and control, directional change and forward movement in the water while also reinforcing how to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water.

Stage 3: Water Stamina

In the class, swimmers focus on swimming longer distances and are introduced to rotary breathing and integrated arm and leg action. In the event of falling into a body of water, students learn how to swim to safety.

SWIM STROKES

Swim Strokes, for ages 5-12, include three stages that cover introduction and refinement of swimming strokes as well as cultivating a healthy lifestyle.

Stage 4: Stroke Introduction

In this class, swimmers focus on developing basic swimming strokes and personal water safety.

Stage 5: Stroke Development

In this class, students continue to work on their stroke technique and all major competitive strokes are introduced

Stage 6: Stroke Mechanics

In this class, students refine their stroke technique on all of the major competitive strokes and learn about competitive swimming and how to incorporate swimming into a healthy lifestyle.
