Preschool – 3.5-6 years
Preschool 1 (Ducklings)
The goal of Preschool 1 is to introduce your child to the water and develop the fundamentals of swimming, independently from their caretaker. In preschool 1 we will focus on the foundation to their swimming such as bubbles (breath control), floating, kicking and gliding with assistance. Safety and fun is an important element and learning how to be safe when they are around water in the community.
Preschool 2 (Turtles)
The goal of Preschool 2 is to start building up on their swimming foundation. They will begin to independently perform basic fundamental skills such as floating, kicking and gliding. In Preschool 2 swimmers will begin to do their combined arm strokes and leg actions, on their front and also introducing new strokes such as elementary backstroke and backstroke.
Preschool 3 (Sea Otters)
The goal for preschool 3 is to develop an independent and efficient preschool swimmer. In this level, they will master the front crawl stroke, elementary backstroke, and backstroke. They will also be introduced to whip kick and dolphin kick, transitioning into more advanced strokes.
Preschool 4 (Stingrays)
The goal for preschool 4 is to gain skill and technique towards further distances and endurance swimming. This class will prepare swimmers for intermediate youth level classes, through side breathing of the pool width and backstrokes by themselves. They will be introduced to new strokes such as breaststroke and butterfly.
