About this event


We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Sunday, December 10, 2023.

What happens in Learn-to-Swim Level 5?

In Learn-to-Swim Level 5 - Stroke Refinement, our instructors follow a plan to introduce new swimming and water safety skills and to build on ones previously learned. The expectations are higher for participants now in regards to distance and quality. Each class is loaded with engaging and challenging activities and drills to build endurance and improve technique. Some of the milestones in Learn to Swim Level 5 include:

  • Performing a shallow-angle dive into deep water.
  • Swimming the front crawl for 50 yards.
  • Swimming elementary backstroke for 50 yards.
  • Swimming the breaststroke for 25 yards.
  • Swimming the back crawl for 25 yards.

It is common for students to participate in several sessions of Learn to Swim Level 5 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.

Parents and guardians must stay off the pool deck during swim lessons and not attempt to coach their swimmer based on what they observe during lessons. All are expected to observe sessions from the elevated spectator area, keeping the pool deck clear of non-participants. Please note that we do not allow any person to climb on or through the railings. Accessibility accommodations should be requested through the front desk and discussed with the instructor as well.

For safety reasons, wet bodies are not allowed in the spectator area. Swimmers may dry off completely on deck or in a locker room before being seated in the spectator area.
