Level 1: Learn to Swim

front to back and back to front, treading water, alternating simultaneous arm and leg actions in front and back, combining arm and leg actions on front and back and age-appropriate water safety topics.

Level 3: Stroke Development

October 15 - December 10

Sundays, 1:30 PM-2:00 PM

Ages 5+

The objectives of Learn-to-Swim Level 3 are to expand proficiency of previously learned skills by
providing additional guided practice. Participants learn and practice survival floating and learn
to swim front crawl and elementary backstroke at rudimentary proficiency levels. We begin
introduction of the scissors and dolphin kicks and extend the time duration for treading water.
Participants also learn rules for headfirst entries and begin to learn to enter the water headfirst

from a seated position at poolside. As in all levels, new and previously addressed water safety
topics are included. Participants who successfully complete Level 3 have achieved basic water
competency in a pool environment.

Level 4: Stroke Improvement (equivalent to Pre-Fins Beg. Novice)

October 15 - December 10

Sundays, 1:30 PM-2:00 PM

Ages 5+

In Learn-to-Swim Level 4, participants improve their aquatic skills and increase their endurance by swimming the strokes learned in Level 3 (i.e., front crawl, elementary backstroke) for greater distances and with more advanced proficiency. Participants add arm actions to the previously
learned scissors kick and breaststroke kick to perform the rudimentary sidestroke and to learn the breaststroke. Participants also begin to learn the back crawl and butterfly, as well as the basics of performing a simple open turn at a wall.
