LEVEL 1 – WATER EXPLORATION
The focus of Level 1 is an introduction to water. If your child cannot fully submerge without holding their nose, this class is for them. Skills required to pass this level include: front and back float with supports, front and back glide with support, basic combined stroke.

LEVEL 2 – PRIMARY SKILLS

The main focus of this level is to strengthen front and back floating skills and work on basic front and back crawl (beginner stroke) skills. To pass this level, the child must be comfortable underwater, roll from front to back float, tread water for 15 seconds, and swim for 5 body lengths using a combined stroke or beginner stroke.

LEVEL 3 – STROKE DEVELOPMENT

The focus of this level is strengthening front and back swimming skills in deep water. The skills associated with the elementary backstroke and sidestroke kick will be introduced. In order to pass this level, the child must be able to tread in deep water for 30 seconds, swim the front crawl for 15 yards using rotary breathing and demonstrate knowledge of both the elementary backstroke and scissor kick in deep water. They will need to be comfortable swimming underwater.

LEVEL 4 – STROKE IMPROVEMENT

In order to be in this level your child needs to have passed level 3 and be able to swim crawl and elementary backstrokes with good technique for 15 yards. Sidestroke skills will be improved on and complicated breaststroke and butterfly stroke skills will be taught. In order to pass this level, the child must be able to swim Front Crawl and elementary back strokes for 25 yards, sidestroke for 15 yards and show knowledge of breaststroke and butterfly for 15 yards. At this level your child needs to be very comfortable in deep water and be able to swim underwater for 3-5 body lengths.

The main focus of this level is to refine the technique for all of the strokes and continue to build endurance. To be in this level your child needs to have passed level 4 and have a great crawl stroke with rotary breathing, strong elementary backstroke, and sidestroke. In addition, they should know how to do the breaststroke and butterfly. They should be able to dive into a pool, swim 25 yards and surface dive down to 8 feet.

LEVEL 6 – SKILL PROFICIENCY

The main focus of this level is to improve stroke technique and build endurance. There are three separate sections of instruction in this level. They are: Personal Water Safety, Fitness Swimmer and Fundamentals of Diving. Because this program is taught in a pond with no diving facilities available, only the first two sections will be covered in this class. To be in this level, your child must have proof of having passed level 5.
