This is an interactive class between parent and child in the pool. This class will introduce the child to the aquatic environment; kicking and arm movements; correct holding techniques; and lots of FUN!
The program consists of three levels that promote developmentally appropriate learning of fundamental water safety and aquatic skills consisting of water entry and exit’ breath control and submersion, floating, changing direction and positions, treading water, swimming on the front and back as well as water safety skills in every level.
This is a water exploration course. Participants will learn breath control by blowing bubbles and submerging their face. they will practice body position on their front and back while increasing their comfort and independence. They will also learn arm and leg movements for the front and back crawl. Water safety rules such as, “Always swim with a buddy in a supervised area”, will be discusses, as will life jacket safety.
Participants will learn rhythmic breathing and how to retrieve objects while fully submerged. they will learn combined arm and leg motions on the front and the back as well as how to move their legs alternately on the side. They will learn to roll over front – to – back and back – to -front and how to tread water. Students will review the water safety rules from Level I and discuss new topics, including how to enter the water safely in a pool or open water, how to recognize and emergency, and how to get help.
Prerequisites: completion of Level I or Preschool Level II or demonstration of prior skills requirements.
This class will work on technique for the front and back crawl strokes and will introduce the butterfly kick and body motion. Students will learn to tread water for 30 seconds and begin learning head-first entries. they will work on rotary breathing. Your child will learn how to dive safely and what to do in an emergency. This is a great place to begin learning competitive swimming techniques.
Prerequisites: completion of Level II or Preschool Level III or demonstration of prior level skills requirements.
This level will improve students’ front crawl and back crawl, and introduce them to the breaststroke and elementary breaststroke. they will also become more proficient with the butterfly and will begin to learn the side stroke. Participants will continue to improve their diving skills. In addition to general water safety, the students will learn how to perform a throwing assist and how to care for a conscious choking victim.
Prerequisites: completion of Level III or demonstration of prior level skills requirements.
Students will learn how to perform a long shallow dive as well as surface dives. they will begin to learn flip turns on the front and back. Students will build their endurance for all of the major strokes and finish learning the sidestroke. They will also focus on survival swimming and rescue breathing.
Water adjustment and basic swimming skills such as floating, kicking, and arm movements are the focus. This class is for 15 years and up.
Sometimes we all need a little extra help. Private swimming lessons allow the student to progress at their own rate and meet individual goals. Classes meet for 30 minutes and are offered in a six class format. Scheduling is coordinated with the pool schedule by the instructor and with the student’s availability in consideration.
Private Lesson Guidelines include a 4 hour cancellation policy and an 8-week completion time frame. Students can begin at the age of 3 years to adults. You can start by contacting the Aquatics office at (502) 863-7865.
