Swim Lesson Levels:
Turtle 1 /Turtle 2: Water Adjustment (Must be 3-5yrs. old)
Turtle 1, will be held in the kiddy pool. Turtle 2, classes will be held in zero depth to 3-foot section of the main pool. In both classes, students learn to become comfortable in and round water, as well as under the water. These levels are designed for younger swimmers who need assistance in learning basic elementary water skills with assistance and without. Emphasis of this class includes: water safety and adjustment through songs and games.
Tadpole—Level 1: Introduction to Water (Must be at least 4ft. tall) (Typical ages 4-7)
This level is intended to help students feel more comfortable in the water with assistance from the instructor. Students will learn basic water skills, submerging, breath holding, floating, gliding, alternating and simultaneous leg and arm action, and water safety. Participants must be at least 4ft. tall.
Frog—Level 2: Fundamental Water Skills (Typical ages 5-8)
Participants combine the skills developed in Level 1 to master the fundamental skills necessary for basic swim strokes with less assistance from the instructor. Skills taught include rotary breathing, retrieve submerged objects, exploration to deeper water, finning, treading water, gliding, turning over and swimming on back. Prerequisite: Must have passed Level 1.
Minnow—Level 3: Stroke Development (Typical ages 6-12)
Students build and refine skills from Level 2, and introduced to new strokes and techniques. This level introduces new floats, dolphin, flutter, scissor and breaststroke kicks, streamline, and elementary backstroke. Exploration to deep water swimming, and elements/ rules for diving in the 12-foot section will be introduced. Prerequisite: Must have passed Level 2.
Seahorse—Level 4: Stroke Improvement (Typical ages 7-14) — ONLY OFFERED DURING SESSION 1 AND 3
Participants improve on swimming skills and increase endurance on strokes learned in previous levels. This includes front and elementary backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and rotary breathing. Additionally, skills taught include head first entries in the deep ends of the pool, and off the diving board, treading water, feet first surface dive and introduction to flip turns at the wall.

Porpoise—Level 5: Stroke Refinement (Typical ages 7-14) — ONLY OFFERED DURING SESSION 2 AND 4
This higher-level course focuses on increased endurance, coordination, and refinement of all strokes. Participants will work on refining strokes in order to swim with more ease, efficiency, power and smoothness over greater distances. This course is only offered during session 2 and 4. Prerequisite: Must have passed Level 4.
