Introduce your child to the water and gain comfortability. We will practice the fundamentals of swimming through song-singing and games. This class has an instructor guiding you and your child through the class. We encourage all parents to have: closeness, skin contact, eye contact, smiles and enthusiasm with their little swimmers! This will help in gaining trust in the water.
Preschool Level 1
The goal of Preschool 1 is to introduce your child to the water and develop the fundamentals of swimming independently from their caretaker. In Preschool 1, we will focus on the foundation of swimming using bubbles (breath control), floating, kicking and gliding with assistance. Safety and fun are important elements, as well as learning how to be safe when they are around water in the community.
Preschool Level 2
The goal of Preschool 2 is to start building on their swimming foundation. They will begin to independently perform basic fundamental skills such as floating, kicking and gliding. Beginning on their front side swimmers will begin their combined arm strokes and leg actions. Then we will introduce new strokes like the elementary backstroke and backstroke.
Preschool Level 3
The goal for Preschool 3 is to develop an independent and efficient preschool swimmer. In this level, they will master the front crawl stroke, elementary backstroke and backstroke. They will also be introduced to whip kick and dolphin kick, transitioning into more advanced strokes.
Preschool Level 4
The goal for Preschool 4 is to gain skill and technique towards further distances and endurance swimming. This class will prepare swimmers for intermediate youth level classes through side breathing (pool width) and backstrokes by themselves. They will be introduced to new strokes such as breaststroke and butterfly.
