This class is for novice and beginning swimmers age 6 months – 2 years WITH A PARENT (or other adult). Parent participation in the water is required. Focus is on acclimation to the water environment, development of safety awareness, introduction to swim skills, and teaching adults some skills they can apply to facilitate their own child’s safety, comfort and learning in the water. This class will be conducted in the small “kiddie” pool. Children who are not yet potty trained should always wear diapers or other attire that will provide effective “containment” when swimming. It is recommended that you consult your child’s physician for medical approval prior to class participation.
Tadpoles & Frogs
This class is for novice and beginning swimmers age 2-5 years. Parent or other adult is required to participate in the water. No prerequisite for this level. It is suggested that older swimmers register for Seahorses rather than this group.
This class is for novice and beginning swimmers age 5/6 and up. Participants should be able to follow directions and work in a group without parental assistance. There is no swimming skill prerequisite. This class will be conducted in the small “kiddie” pool. If the child is particularly anxious, fearful, timid or is new to group instruction settings, parent participation is encouraged (at least in the first few classes). If the child is not yet ready to follow directions and function independently in the group, it is suggested that the child & parent register in the Tadpoles & Frogs class.
This class is for students who have successfully completed Seahorse (or ARC Level 1) skills. To participate in this class, children should be comfortable in the water, able to fully submerge and blow bubbles; with some assistance, they should be able to float on front and back; with support, they should be able to perform arm stroke and kick. As the course progresses, children may be introduced to some activities in the large lap pool if the group is ready for such a transition.
This class is for swimmers who are nearly ready to transition to Dolphins/ARC Level 3. They are comfortable in the water, able to fully submerge and blow bubbles; they are able to float on front and back with minimal assistance; they can perform arm stroke and kick with a little support. Most of the class activities are conducted in the large lap pool.
This class is for swimmers who have successfully completed Fish/ARC Level 2 skills. Participants are able to float on the front (with face submerged) and on the back without any assistance; they are able to independently swim short distances on the front using some effective combination of alternating arm stroke and kick. This class is conducted in the large lap pool, so the ability to follow directions and swim & float with minimal hands-on assistance is necessary for participants.
This class is for swimmers who have successfully completed Dolphins/ARC Level 3 or 4 skills. Participants are able to swim Front Crawl stroke with effective rotary breathing at least 25 yards and can perform the Back Crawl stroke. Participants improve mastery of strokes they already know and learn new strokes: Breaststroke, Sidestroke, Elementary Backstroke and/or Butterfly. Swimmers also work on endurance and swimming as a fitness activity as well as safety skills in and around the water. This class is conducted in the large lap pool.
