Ages 3 years through 5 years

This is a child’s first experience in the pool without parental assistance.  The children are taught the basic skills that are the building blocks of swimming.  They also learn about pool safety and the use of personal flotation devices. Children must pass each level to move to the next level.

PIKE

Children will be taught without the help of a parent. Children will be introduced to basic swimming skills.

EEL

Students will be moving through the water independently with little support from the instructor.

RAY

Front and back floats, treading water, kicking, and front crawl refinement will be worked on.

STARFISH

Children will become proficient and increase their endurance in the front crawl and learn the back crawl.


The skills taught in Preschool Swim Lessons center around five main components:

  • Personal safety:
    Activities that help increase awareness of personal safety issues
    for both the child and the family, including boating safety.
  • Personal growth:
    Activities that help the child and the family grow in
    spirit, mind, and body, including character development.
  • Stroke development:
    Activities that help develop swimming abilities so participants
    can move in the water safely.
  • Water sports and games:
    Activities that help develop an appreciation of aquatic activities
    that may last a lifetime, including age-appropriate games and songs.
  • Rescue:
    Activities that build awareness of how to help others in aquatic emergencies.
