10-10:30 AM – Stroke refinement/improvement - for students who know most swimming strokes but need a review.  They can jump or dive off board/dock and can swim without aids, can do front crawl w/coordinated breathing as well as several backstrokes, breast stroke/side stroke and does not rely on doggie paddling. They are very comfortable in deep water.  This course reviews and refines skills as well as develops more efficient strokes for better endurance in the water. (usually ages 8-12)

10:45-11:15 AM –  Skill and stroke readiness/practice - for students who float, submerge, swim underwater but are still learning to coordinate the front and back strokes and rhythmic breathing. Many students jump and dive into deep water but tend to doggie paddle or swim with face out of the water- some stroke knowledge/ability and ready to learn/improve for better water efficiency and safety. (approx. ages 6-8).

11:30-12 noon - Water exploration/primary beginner skills – for students who enjoy the water and will submerge and/or put their face in, are comfortable with lifting feet and swimming on top or under the water but hesitate to jump and swim into deep water without aids or close parent contact. (approx. ages 5-6)

12:10-12:40 pm – Water exploration/readiness - for young children with limited school/ swim lesson experience. They may be reluctant to put face in the water and submerge or love dunking and submerging but have limited attention span and ability to coordinate strokes (ages 4 -5 )   

(note- ability and coordination of strokes is developmental - age and athletic ability often dictates the speed of learning and mastering strokes / water skills.) All children benefit from review, repetition, practice, encouragement, fun with peers, and playing in the water!)
