In order to move from Preschool Level 2 to Learn-to-Swim instruction swimmers must be able to:
-Glide on front for at least 2 body lengths
-Roll to back and float for 5 seconds-Recover to a vertical position
-Swim using combined arm and leg actions on front for three body lengths.
-Roll to back, float for 5 seconds, roll to front then continue to swim for 3 body lengths.
