Lesson Descriptions: 

Tiny Tots: Our program is for children 5 and under who have not been to kindergarten.  It is required that a parent accompany their child in the water.  You will learn to work with your child on pre-swimming skills that are provided by a qualified instructor.  In case of cold and/or rainy weather, lessons will be cancelled.  Lesson cancellations, due to time constraints and inclement weather, will not be made up or refunded.  Pre-registration is required with a limit of 15 participants per session and a minimum of 5 per session.

Tadpoles: Learn basic personal water safety information and skills, to help participants feel comfortable in the water and to enjoy the water safely.  Participants will learn elementary aquatic skills such as floating, gliding, and breath control, which they will build on as they progress through the six learn-to-swim levels.  Participants will also learn to safely enter and exit the water independently and begin to learn to recover from floating and gliding into a vertical position.

Frogs: Gives participants success with fundamental skills. This level marks the beginning of true locomotion skills.  Participants continue to explore simultaneous and alternating arm and leg actions on the front and back to lay the foundation for future strokes.  Participants will learn to step into chest deep water, perform front and back floats and return to a vertical position as well as swim on the front using a combined arm and leg action for 5 body lengths.

Swordfish: Participants will learn the survival float, the elementary backstroke and to coordinate the front crawl.  They are introduced to the scissors kick and build on the fundamentals of treading water.  Participants also learn rules for headfirst entries and begin to learn to enter the water headfirst from the rafts.

Dolphins: Developing confidence in the strokes learned thus far and to improve other aquatic skills.  Participants improve their skills and increase their endurance by swimming familiar strokes such as the front crawl and elementary backstroke for greater distances.  Students also continue to build upon the scissors kick by adding the arms for sidestroke and butterfly.  The back crawl and the breaststroke are introduced in this level.

Sharks: Coordinating and refining strokes.  Participants refine their performance of all the strokes including the front crawl, back crawl, butterfly, breaststroke, elementary backstroke, sidestroke and increase their swimming distances.

Level Six: Refining the strokes so students swim them with ease, efficiency, power and smoothness over greater distances

NOTE:  If the weather is cold or rainy, it is up to the discretion of the parent if their child should attend.  Lesson cancellations, due to time constraints and inclement weather, will not be made up or refunded.

All registrations and payments must be done in advance at the Recreation Department on Barre Street.
