About this event

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Saturday, June 29, 2024.

Swim Basics for Teen/Adult

Students learn personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning two benchmark skills: swim-float-swim (sequencing front glide, roll, back float, roll, front glide, and exit) and jump-push-turn-grab.

In Water Acclimation, Water Movement, and Water Stamina, students are taught the recommended skills for all to have around water including safe water habits, underwater exploration, and how to swim to safety and exit in the event of falling into a body of water. Activities, games, and drills, geared to reinforce learning, are utilized heavily as students progress in this skill-based
approach to swimming.

Stage Descriptions:
1 / Water Acclimation Increases comfort with underwater exploration and introduces basic self-rescue skills performed with assistance.

2 / Water Movement Encourages forward movement in water and basic self-rescue skills performed independently.

3 / Water Stamina Develops intermediate self-rescue skills performed at longer distances than in previous stages.


Please bring a bathing suit, towel, and goggles (if desired).
No makeups or refunds will be provided if class is not attended. *No class 5/18*NO CLASS WEEK OF 5/25-5/31 for Memorial Day*
