Stage 3: Water Stamina
(Ages 3-12 years)

Small group swim lessons are a great option for participants looking for more individual attention without the cost of private lessons. Maximum capacity for each lesson is 3 people. In stage 3, students learn how to swim to safety from a longer distance than in previous stages in the event of falling into a body of water. This stage also introduces rhythmic breathing and integrated arm and leg action.
