Class Levels

Classes are taught in small groups for all age groups and skill levels by certified instructors who promote water confidence and safety. The structure and methods employed by our qualified staff allow for a high level of individualized attention.

Guppies

Any child three years and up who cannot swim across the pool on their backs are “guppies”. Guppies will work on floating and drown-proof techniques, while gaining confidence around the water.

Goal: To jump in, surface on back, and swim the width of the pool without being assisted by instructor.

Flippers

Will be working on the transition from floating to swimming strokes on their stomachs. This is the beginning of actual freestyle.

Prerequisite: Have reached the goals of the guppies.

Seals

Will work on freestyle skills with proper rhythmic breathing. The backstroke will be introduced. Goal: To swim freestyle with proper rhythmic breathing across the width of the pool.

Prerequisite: Be able to float on back, roll over and take four strokes and return to their backs across the width of the pool.

Barracudas

This is designed to refine freestyle stroke efficiency and endurance to swim 25 meters. The backstroke, diving, and proper hyperextension off the wall will be included.

Prerequisite: Be able to swim, four strokes, breath to the side and repeat, the width of the pool.

Swim Team Skills

At this level, the child learns to move efficiently through the water. Skill enhancement covers deep water bobbing, butterfly, starts and turns, breast stroke, back crawl, and proper breathing techniques.

Prerequisite: Successfully using the uninterrupted crawl and backstroke to complete 200 yards. Accustomed to swimming in deep water.
