Youth Swimming Lessons (Ages 5 - 12)

SWIM BASICS Y2: Water Movement & Y3: Water Stamina (AGES 5 – 12)

Has your child never taken swim lessons before or need a refresher on the basics of swimming? Swim basics is the perfect place to start!

Students learn personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning three benchmark skills:

  • Front crawl (arm circles + kicking)
  • Swim, float, swim—sequencing front glide, roll, back float, roll, front glide and exit
  • Jump, push, turn and grab

SWIM STROKES Y4: Stroke Introduction, Y5: Stroke Development, & Y6: Stroke Mechanics (AGES 5 – 12)

Having mastered the fundamentals, students learn additional water safety skills and build stroke technique, developing skills that prevent chronic disease, increase social-emotional and cognitive well-being and foster a lifetime of physical activity.

Precompetitive Swim Team

Niebur
1/3/23 - 4/14/23
VIEW

Looking for a great introduction of a swim team experience? This pre-competitive swim team will be led by experienced instructors, who will prepare swimmers for a swim team. Emphasis is on refining the mechanics of the four competitive strokes (freestyle, breast, backstroke, butterfly) & increasing endurance.

Swimmers in pre-competitive swim team should be able to preform all four of the strokes prior to the class, tread water for over 2 minutes, and be able to dive head first into the pool.

Precompetitive swim team is run just like a swim team. Swimmers will go through swimming team sets daily.
