The world is 71% water. Kids are 100% curious.
In Swim Basics swim lessons, students learn personal water safety and achieve swimming competency by learning two benchmark skills: swim, float, swim and jump, push, turn, grab. This skill-based approach to swimming includes activities, games and drills.
Stage 1: Water Acclimation increases comfort with underwater exploration and introduces basic self-rescue skills performed with assistance.
Stage 2: Water Movement encourages forward movement in water and basic self-rescue skills performed with assistance.
Stage 3: Water Stamina develops intermediate self-rescue skills performed at longer distances than in previous stages.
After completing Stage 3, swimmers to are introduced to the four competitive swimming strokes as well as rescue skills and healthy lifestyle habits.
Stage 4: Stroke Introduction introduces basic stroke technique in front crawl and back crawl and reinforces water safety through treading water and elementary backstroke.
Stage 5: Stroke Development introduces breast-stroke and butterfly and reinforces water safety through treading water and sidestroke.
Stage 6: Stroke Mechanics refines stroke technique on all major competitive strokes and encourages swimming as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Swim lessons are offered twice a week in monthly sessions, so that your swimmer can continue to build on skills without interruption.
