Level 1 is for beginner swimmers. To join, you must be at least 5 years old.
In this level your child will gain confidence and comfort in the water by learning to submerge and to float on their front and on their backs. They will also take their first few strokes.
We cover basic kicking, arm mechanics and breath control with an emphasis on maintaining a horizontal level body position. This level uses instructional floatation devices to build comfort and confidence in the water. Skills are introduced and reinforced with games, guided exercises and repetitive practice. Most students need 2 to 3 sessions of this class.
Safety skills include monkey crawl to the side, U-turn to the edge, and exiting from the edge.
Swim or glide with wet face and ears for 3 to 6 feet with level body position with light support.
Fully submerged head for 3 to 5 seconds
Back float or glide with level body position with light support
Class size is usually limited to 6 students with a minimum of 4 students.
