Swimming for Young Children
Parents often want to know how to help their child improve in the pool
. The easiest way to help your swimmer is to make sure that they have good goggles. We sell good Speedo googles at the checkpoint in the PE department.
Beginner Swim Lessons
Levels One, Two and Three
This class is designed to help your child become acclimated to the water. Participants learn how to blow bubbles and go underwater. They also experience what it is like to swim with no flotation aid for part of the class.
In level two, children learn to swim on their own for short distances and improve other skills such as breathing and swimming underwater.
Children begin to learn formal strokes in level three such as freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke. Survival skills are introduced such as treading water and survival floating. There is also an increased focus on endurance and being able to swim long distances without stopping. Participants also learn how to dive.
