CHILD LEVEL 1
Beginner/intermediate 5-13 years
Required Skills: Children entering this level need no true swim skills, but must be comfortable putting their face in the water.
Goals for Class:
- Learn coordination of arm and leg movements, to improve stroke technique on front, back and underwater.
- Learn to swim on front, back and underwater independently.
- Develop breathing techniques.
- Upon completion of this level, your child will be able to swim freestyle and backstroke 10 – 20 ft unassisted and demonstrate water safety skills, as well as show their comfort and confidence in the water.
In this class your child will be learning proper stroke and breathing techniques. We teach a method of skill building with the use of stroke drills and swim aids so each stroke becomes more defined. Also, we will work on deep water comfort as well as diving in this level.
If you have a child that is fearful or hesitant of the water, no worries. Our team of well trained teachers can handle anything! Seriously! It is usually harder on nervous parents than it is on the kids. We would like to introduce the fearful children to lessons in a more intimate setting, so please call us so that we can arrange a free one-on-one before enrolling them in a group class. It is important that we give you the best experience possible, and we will do everything possible to ensure that.
