Students develop comfort with underwater exploration and learn to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water in stage 1. They also learn to float on their back with support. The goal is for the children to jump in, go under, & swim a short distance with their face in the water. This stage lays the foundation that allows for a student’s future progress in swimming.
In stage 2, students focus on body position and control, directional change, and forward movement in the water as well as unassisted floating.
In stage 3, students learn how to swim to safety from a longer distance than in previous stages. Students learn how to do the Breast Stroke and the Elementary Backstroke, as well as the Butterfly kick and dives.
Students in stage 4 work on stroke technique and learn all major competitive strokes. The emphasis on water safety continues through treading water and sidestroke.
Students continue work on the 4 competitive strokes as well finishes, & turns at the wall. They also learn how to do a racing start. Coming in to this level, they have learned Free Style, Back Stroke, Breast Stroke, and the Butterfly kick. At this level they will learn the rest of the Butterfly stroke and flip turns. Emphasis is placed on correct competitive motions, so they will know what is expected at the next level.
