Children will not be moved to Level 1 until they turn 6 years old.

Through songs and games our instructors introduce your child to the fun world of swimming.

Basic swimming skills are incorporated through songs and games. Level 1 skills are introduced.

Helps students feel comfortable in the water using basic swimming and water safety skills.

Level 2: Goldfish
This class introduces the basics of swimming including floating without support, combined arm and leg action, and forward motion.

Level 3: Jellyfish
Building on the basics from Level 2, students learn coordination of the front and back crawl, introduction to butterfly, treading water, and beginning head first entry.

Level 4: Dolphin
Helps to develop confidence in the strokes learned in previous levels, improve strokes, and increase endurance.  The basics of turning at the wall are introduced.

Level 5: Whale
Participants refine their performance of all the strokes: front crawl, back crawl, butterfly, breaststroke, elementary backstroke, and sidestroke, and increase their distance. Flip turns on the front and back are introduced.

In this level, swimmers continue to refine all six strokes so students swim them with ease, efficiency, power, and smoothness over greater distances.
