No prior swim experience required for this class. This is an introduction class for swim and safety skills along with breath holding, front and back floating, kicking and using underwater arms. Our goal is independent swimming.
The student should already be swimming a short distance, back floating independently and using underwater arms to enter this class. The goals of this class are to swim a greater distance with proper kicks and arms coming out of the water, independent rollover breathing, sculling and independent elementary backstroke.
Students should be swimming freestyle independently with a rollover breath and independent elementary backstroke. The goal of this class is to build endurance, learn proper freestyle with alternate breathing, backstroke, and breaststroke and dolphin kicks.
