Level One – This class is designed to help your child become more comfortable in the water. Participants learn how to blow bubbles, go underwater, back float, kicking on their back and basic front stroke.

Level Two – Children should know how to swim on their own for a short distance in Level Two. Participants will focus on swimming with their faces in the water, learning the front crawl and backstroke and basic diving skills.

Level Three – Children begin to learn formal strokes such as freestyle, elementary backstroke and the breaststroke kick. There is also an increased focus on endurance and being able to swim long distances without stopping.
