About This Activity

Description

This activity is closed to further registration.

This is a split-level Learn-to-Swim Level 1 and Learn-to-Swim Level 2 class.

What happens in Learn-to-Swim Level 1? For every level of Learn-to-Swim, our instructors follow a plan to introduce new swimming and water safety skills and build on previously learned skills. Each class is loaded with fun, engaging and challenging activities that motivate children to want to perform and learn to swim.

In Learn to Swim Level 1 - Introduction to Water Skills, your child is introduced to basic skills as the foundation for future skills. Certain milestones are necessary for successful completion of Learn to Swim Level 1, including:

  • Entering the water independently using ladder, steps, or side.
  • Traveling at least 5 yards, bobbing 3 times then safely exiting the water.
  • Gliding on front supported at least 2 body lengths.
  • Rolling to a back float for 3 seconds with support.
  • Recovering to a vertical position with support.

It is common for children to participate in several sessions of Learn to Swim Level 1 before they successfully demonstrate each skill. That is okay! It is not important how quickly they move through a level, but that they acquire each skill.

What happens in Learn-to-Swim Level 2?

Learn to Swim Level 2 - Fundamental Aquatic Skills builds on skills learned in Level 1. Our instructors follow a plan to introduce new swimming and water safety skills and build on previously learned skills. Each class is loaded with fun, engaging and challenging activities that motivate children to want to perform and learn to swim. Some of the milestones that are necessary for successful completion of Level 2 include:

  • Stepping from the side into chest-deep water.
  • Moving into a front float for 5 seconds, rolling to back, floating for 5 seconds then recovering to a vertical position.
  • Moving into a back float for 5 seconds, rolling to front then recovering to a vertical position.
  • Pushing off and swimming using combined arm and leg actions on front for 5 body lengths, rolling to the front then continue swimming for 5 body lengths.

It is common for children to participate in several sessions of Learn to Swim Level 2 before they successfully demonstrate each skill. That is okay! It is not important how quickly they move through a level, but that they acquire each skill.
