BEGINNER/INTERMEDIATE SWIM LESSONS LEVEL 1 – 5
Level 1 – Introduces basic aquatic skills, which participants continue to build on as they progress. In addition, participants start developing positive attitudes, effective swimming habits and safe practices in and around the water.
Level 2 – Participants learn to glide and float without support and recover to a vertical position. Participants further develop simultaneous and alternating arm and leg actions on the front and back, laying the foundation for future strokes. New water safety topics are introduced, and previously acquired water safety knowledge and skills are reinforced.
Level 3 – Participants learn and practice survival floating and learn to swim front crawl and elementary backstroke at rudimentary proficiency levels. We introduce the scissors and dolphin kicks and extend the time duration for treading water. They also learn rules for headfirst entries and begin to learn to enter the water headfirst from a seated position at poolside.
Level 4 – Participants improve their aquatic skills and increase their endurance by swimming the strokes learned in level 3 for greater distances and with more advanced proficiency. Participants add arm actions to the previously learned scissors kick and breaststroke kick to perform the rudimentary sidestroke and to learn the breaststroke. Participants also begin to learn the back crawl and butterfly, as well as the basics of performing a simple open turn at a wall.
Level 5 – Participants refine their performance of all six strokes and increase the distances that they swim. They also learn to perform flip turns on the front and back.
Sessions take place:
Mondays and Wednesdays, 5:30 p.m. – 6:15 p.m.
