Swim Lesson Descriptions and Levels

Class levels are based on the child’s swim experience

Pre-School Levels: Ages 3-5

PIKE: Beginner (5:45-6:25pm)  For children who are new to the water with little or no swimming experience, and are uncomfortable going under water. Learn skills in going under water, floating, kicking paddling, and retrieving items from underwater.

EEL: Intermediate (6:30-7:10pm) For children who are not afraid to go under water. These children should have some swimming experience and are comfortable floating/going on their front and back in the water with their ears submerged. This level will teach skills in freestyle and backstroke arm positions. This level will build on doing the skills learned in the Pike class, with more independence and less help from the instructor.

Youth Levels:
Ages 6 and up (or based on instructor approval)

Polliwog: Beginner (5:45-6:25pm)

For older children who are new to the water and may be uncomfortable going under water. Basic swimming skills are taught: floating, retrieving objects , kicking, arm motions and breath control.

Guppy: Advanced (7:15-7:55pm)
