Descriptions of levels:
 Pre 1 First Swim Lesson (Ages 4 & 5)
  • Pre 2 Comfortable in the water (Ages 4 & 5)
 
  • Pre 1 - First Swim Lesson- Introduction to Water Skills (minimum age 4 years).The objective of Pre1 is to help students feel comfortable in the water and to enjoy the water safely. Elementary aquatic skills will be taught and built on as they progress through the six Learn-to-Swim levels. At this level students will start developing good attitudes and safe practices around the water. We will explore movement in the water, observe what comes naturally to your child and build on their strengths. We will begin to address any fears of water. Learning to swim will be fun, safe and rewarding for everyone.
  • Pre2 - Introduction to Water Skills (minimum age 4 years) Your child will qualify for this class if he or she has had swimming lessons before. Elementary aquatic skills will be taught and built on as they progress through the six Learn-to-Swim levels. At this level students will start developing good attitudes and safe practices around the water. We will explore movement in the water, observe what comes naturally to your child and build on their strengths. Learning to swim will be fun, safe and rewarding for everyone.
 
Level 1 - Introduction to Water Skills (must be 6 years old)
Level 1 introduces basic aquatic skills, which participants continue to build on as they progress through Learn - to - Swim. In addition, participants start developing positive attitudes, effective swimming habits and safe practices in and around the water. This is the perfect level for a swimmer who has never had swim lessons before, and may not feel comfortable quite yet in the water. 
 
Level 2- Fundamental Aquatic Skills (must be 6 years old)
In Level 2, students are comfortable in the water. Students entering this course must be able to demonstrate all the completion requirements in Level 1. In this level, students will learn to float without support and to recover to a vertical position. This level marks the beginning of true locomotion skills. Students explore simultaneous and alternating arm and leg actions on the front and back to lay the foundation for future strokes. Level 2 adds to the self-help and basic rescue skills begun in Level 1
 
Level 3- Stroke Development (must be 6 years old)
Students entering this course must have a Level 2 certificate or must be able to demonstrate all the completion requirements in Level 2. The objective of Level 3 is to build on the skills in Level 2 by providing additional guided practice. Students will be taught to coordinate the front crawl and back crawl. Elements of the butterfly and the fundamentals of treading water are introduced. Students should also learn rules for head-first entries and begin to learn to enter the water headfirst from the side of the pool (if the water is 9 feet deep or deeper). As in all levels, additional safety skills are taught.
 
Level 4- Stroke Improvement (must be 6 years old)
Students entering this course must have a Level 3 certificate or must be able to demonstrate all the completion requirements in Level 3. The objective of Level 4 is to develop confidence in the strokes learned thus far and to improve other aquatic skills. Students improve their skills and increase their endurance by swimming familiar strokes (front crawl and back crawl) for greater distances. Students continue to build on the butterfly and introduce the elementary backstroke, breaststroke and elements of the sidestroke. Basics of turning at a wall are also introduced.
 
Level 5- Stroke Refinement (must be 6 years old)
Students entering this course must have a Level 4 certificate or must be able to demonstrate all the course requirements in Level 4. The objective of Level 5 is coordination and refinement of strokes. Participants refine their performance of all the strokes (front crawl, back crawl, butterfly, breaststroke, elementary backstroke and sidestroke) and increase their distances. Flip turns on the front and back are also introduce
