Pollywogs (Levels 1 & 2) Beginning Swim - The Pollywog class will be held in the small pool. Your child will be introduced to basic water safety rules, elementary floating and treading water skills with assistance, to acquaint the new swimmer to the water. The goal is to have them feel comfortable in the water with minimal assistance from coach. Students will be evaluated and grouped on the first day according to skill level.
Goldfish (Level 3) Intermediate Swim - Held in the small pool. Once your child has learned the basics and feels comfortable with floating, treading water and "swimming" to his instructor they will be ready for the Goldfish. In the Goldfish level your child will begin to work on freestyle strokes and increasing stamina to feel confident in the water. Once they are able to swim 25 yards (across the pool) using freestyle strokes, they will be ready for Dolphins.
Dolphins - (Levels 4 & 5) Advanced Swim. This class will be held in the large pool (7-12 feet deep) and will include 2 skill levels Students will be evaluated and grouped by skill level at first class. Students will work on learning and improving their strokes. They will learn proper freestyle, backstroke, side stroke. In addition to perfecting the strokes they will be building up their stamina.
