Level 1: WATER EXPLORATION
Children must be at least 4 years of age (children ages 2 1/2 – 3 years old should take Pre-School Swim Lessons). The objective of this class is to help the child feel comfortable in the water.

No floatation devices will be used.

Level 5: Kids’ Swim Clinic
A special one hour program designed for children ages 6 – 12 years old to lay the foundation for swimming at the competitive level. This class covers the principles and proper techniques for all competitive strokes, kicks and turns. Distance and sprint training will be covered in each class.
Level 6: Pre-Competitive Swim Team
Pre-Competitive Swim Team allows for younger swimmers, 6 – 12 years old, who have progressed quickly through group or private lessons to continue to advance their skills without being on the competitive team. With the Pre-Competitive Swim Team, the emphasis is on teaching the fundamentals of the 4 strokes with concentration on the technique while exposing the individuals to a team environment. An additional benefit to this program is the advancement of pool time, meeting two times per week, which results in a more consistent progression of skill without the full time commitment of the competitive swim team.
Lessons are taught in a fun-filled environment where students learn the basic techniques of swimming and safety skills are emphasized. Water temperature is kept between 84 – 88 degrees in the Program Pool and a little cooler at 79 – 82 degrees in the Lap Pool, an ideal for comfort.
