Parent and Child Aquatics
This course helps children become comfortable in and around the water so they are ready to learn to swim. Parent and Child Aquatics
gives parents information and techniques to help orient their young children to the water and to supervise water activities in a safe manner.
This course follows the same guidelines as Level 1 but is designed for preschool age children.
This course follows the same guidelines as Level 2 but is designed for preschool age children.
This course follows the same guidelines as Level 3 but is designed for preschool age children
Level 1 - Introduction to Water Skills
There are no prerequisites for this course. The objective of Level 1 is to help students feel comfortable in the water and to enjoy the water
safely. In Level 1, elementary aquatic skills are taught, which students build on as they progress through the six Learn-to-Swim levels.
Level 2 - Fundamental Aquatic Skills
Students entering this course must be able to demonstrate all the completion requirements in Level 1. The objective of Level 2 is to give
students success with fundamental skills. Students learn to float without support and to recover to a vertical position. This level marks the
beginning of true locomotion skills. Students explore simultaneous and alternating arm and leg actions on the front and back to lay the
foundation for future strokes.
Mountain Vistas, City Lights
Level 3 - Stroke Development
Students entering this course must be able to demonstrate all the completion requirements in Level 2. The objective of Level 3 is to build on
the skills in Level 2 by providing additional guided practice. Students are taught to coordinate the front crawl and back crawl. Elements of
the butterfly and the fundamentals of treading water are introduced. Students also begin to learn to enter the water headfirst.
Level 4 - Stroke Improvement
Students entering this course must be able to demonstrate all the completion requirements in Level 3. The objective of Level 4 is to develop
confidence in the strokes learned thus far and to improve other aquatic skills. Students improve their skills and increase their endurance
by swimming familiar strokes for greater distances. Students continue to build on the butterfly and introduce the elementary backstroke,
breaststroke, and elements of the sidestroke. Basics of turning at a wall are also introduced.
Level 5 - Stroke Refinement
Students entering this course must be able to demonstrate all the course requirements in Level 4. The objective of Level 5 is coordination
and refinement of strokes. Participants refine their performance of all the strokes and increase their distances. Flip turns on the front and
back are also introduced.
Level 6 - Swimming and Skill Proficiency
Students entering this course must be able to demonstrate all skills required to complete Level 5. The objective of Level 6 is to refine strokes
so students swim them with more ease, efficiency, power, and smoothness over greater distances. Other aquatic activities are also
introduced. Level 6 is designed with “menu” options.
