Youth Swimming

Parent/Child Swim: (30 min)

For parent and children between the ages of 1 to

3 years.

The purpose of this class is to familiarize families with

class will be to have fun with your child. Instruction will

Participants in each session will be tested during first

lesson to determine which level they are best suited for.

Preschool 1: (30 min) Preschool Participants

MUST be 4 years old by the start of the session. The

purpose of this class is to introduce children ages 4

and 5 to the pool in a small group setting without the

parent in the water. While having fun and playing

games the child will learn to follow simple instructions

from the teacher: blowing bubbles, kicking, paddling,

floating and all done with the support of the teacher.

Teaching safety is a major component of this class.

Level 3: (40 min) For children ages 6 and up to

build on the skills learned in Level 2. New skills

introduced include jumping in from the side,

diving, rotary breathing, survival float, various

kicks, front crawl and elementary backstroke. The

big emphasis at this level is the child is learning

to swim independently using front crawl.

Level 4: (40 min) For children who can demonstrate

all the skills introduced in Level 3. In

addition to building on those skills the child will

learn back crawl, breaststroke, sidestroke, butterfly,

survival swimming, and more diving skills.

Level 5: (40 min) For children who can

demonstrate all the skills from Level 4. In addition

to refining all the strokes the child will learn tuck

and surface dives, flip turns, and more diving

skills. New safety skills will be introduced.

Swimmers with hair that is collar length or longer must

wear bathing caps. Available from lifeguards ($5)

Preschool 2&3: (30 min) For the more

advanced preschooler to build on the basic

aquatic skills learned in Preschool 1.

Level 1: (40 min) Age 6 and up for the non-swimmer

to learn about being safe in a pool environment., and

the skills necessary to begin to learn to swim. Children

will learn to practice blowing bubbles, submerging

their face, front and back floats, glides, treading

water and paddling. All skills are performed with

the physical support of the teacher if necessary.

Level 2: (40 min) For children ages 6 and up child

will learn and practice safety skills along with building

on level 1. The major difference is the child is

learning these skills independently of his teacher: fully

submerge head and bobbing, kicking, front and back

floats, tread water, gliding and basic paddle stroke.

Aquatic Fitness

Exercise in the water! Each class includes a warm-up,

aerobic upper body, mid and lower body workout

and ends with a cool-down. This workout for

swimmers and non-swimmers is designed for all

fitness levels and paces. Water exercise is a wonderful

low-impact alternative to traditional land exercise

programs- ideal for people with arthritis and those

recovering from injuries as well as anyone looking

for a great workout. Post-operative participants must

have written permission from a physician. You must

be at least 18 years old to register for this class.

Summer Lap Swimming

Swimming is a great aerobic exercise which conditions

the heart and lungs as well as helping control body

weight. It can also give you more energy, increase

resistance to fatigue, relieve tension, tone muscles and

help you to relax and sleep. You must be 18 years old and

be able to swim one length of the pool at your own pace

without stopping. This is not a learn-to-swim program.
