Learn-to-Swim Levels 1 & 2

Classes meet once a week for 4 weeks.
Level 1 & 2 classes are 30-minutes long.
Fees: Member $80; Non-member $100


Learn-to-Swim Level 1

This beginner level is for children who have had very little or no swim instruction, and wish to feel comfortable and safe in the water.  The class focuses on developing positive attitudes, good swimming habits, and elementary aquatics skills, such as blowing bubbles, bobbing, opening eyes underwater to retrieve submerged objects, front and back gliding, alternating arm and leg action, combined stroke movement, and treading water.  Most skills are performed with support.  Swimmers may use 2-4 floatation “bubbles.”  A swim evaluation is not required.

6 Participants
Monday, 5:20 – 5:50 pm
Thursday, 4:00 – 4:30 pm

Saturday, 11:20 – 11:50 am
Sunday, 11:20 – 11:50 am 

Learn-to-Swim Level 2

This beginner-intermediate level class focuses on teaching children and to float and glide on their front and back, develop simultaneous and alternating arm and leg actions, laying a foundation for future strokes and achieving success all without support from the swim instructor.  Swimmers may use 1-3 floatation “bubbles.”  A swim evaluation is required.

6 Participants
Wednesday, 4:40 – 5:10 pm

Saturday, 12:00 – 12:30 pm

Fees: Member $100; Non-member $120


Learn-to-Swim Level 3

This intermediate level class is for swimmers who are able to swim with combined strokes on their fronts and backs (without assistance).   The class focuses on helping swimmers feel comfortable and safe in deep water, teaching front crawl and elementary backstroke, building on the fundamentals of treading water, introducing scissor and dolphin kicks, as well as the rules of headfirst entries (seated entry dives).  Swimmers use no floatation devices.  A swim evaluation is required.

6 Participants
Tuesday, 4:00 – 4:45 pm

Saturday, 8:00 – 8:45 am
Sunday, 8:00 – 8:45 am

Learn-to-Swim Level 4

The goal of Learn to Swim Level 4, an intermediate-advanced level, is to develop participants’ confidence in the strokes learned thus far and to improve other aquatic skills.  We will focus on increasing endurance by swimming familiar strokes (front crawl, elementary backstroke), and adding sidestroke, back crawl, breaststroke, butterfly, and basics of turning at the wall.  No floatation devices are used.  A swim evaluation is required.

8 Participants
Tuesday, 5:00 – 5:45 pm
Saturday, 9:00 – 9:45 am
Sunday, 9:00 – 9:45 am

Learn-to-Swim Level 5

Intermediate-advanced level 5 is for swimmers who are competent in all strokes, as well as basic diving techniques.  Swimmers will focus on refining their stroke techniques, incorporating flip turns, and increasing  their swimming distance.  Level 5 is an intermediate-advanced level.  No floatation devices are used. A swim evaluation is required.

8 Participants
Thursday, 5:00 – 5:45 pm
Saturday, 10:00 – 10:45 am
Sunday, 10:00 – 10:45 am

Learn-to-Swim Level 6

The goal of this advanced level class is to refine strokes so participants swim with more ease, efficiency, power, and smoothness over greater distances to increase endurance and aquatic fitness.  Skills we will work on include circle swimming, using a pack clock, using swimming equipment such as pull buoys and fins.  There will be a final skills assessment of swimming 500 yards continuously using any 3 strokes.  No floatation devices are used. A swim evaluation is required.
