Swim Lesson Flow Chart

SWIM BASICS

Swim Basics, for ages 3 to 5, are introductory classes divided into three progressive stages that include the foundations of water safety, basic swimming skills and focusing on swimming to safety. 

Stage 1: Water Acclimation

The Water Acclimation Class introduces swimmers to the pool and helps them develop safe water habits in a fun and encouraging environment. In water acclimation, swimmers develop comfort with underwater exploration and learn to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water. This stage lays the foundation that allows for the participant’s future progress in swimming.

Stage 2: Water Movement

In this class, swimmers are taught skills that focus on body position and control, directional change and forward movement in the water while also reinforcing how to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water.

Stage 3: Water Stamina

In this class, swimmers focus on swimming longer distances and are introduced to rotary breathing and integrated arm and leg action. In the event of falling into a body of water, students learn how to swim to safety.

SWIM STROKES

Having mastered the fundamentals, students learn additional water safety skills and build stroke technique, developing skills that prevent chronic disease, increase social-emotional and cognitive well-being, and foster a lifetime of physical activity.

Stage 4: Stroke Introduction

In this class, swimmers focus on developing basic swimming strokes and personal water safety.

Stages 5-6 begin at age 5 in our School Age category.

Registration closes three days prior to the lesson start date to give us time to coordinate each lesson. If you would like to sign up for lessons after registration closes, please call the Aquatics Department to see if space is still available.
