Parent & Me toddler swim classes are new this spring to the Little Dipper program. Toddles will take the first steps towards learning the principals of swimming and water safety. The program is designed to teach the parents a variety of teaching principals such as proper holding techniques, safe water entry/exit, breath holding commands, and front/back flotation. The class instructor will assist both the parent and toddler by introducing and demonstrating these skills in a controlled pace for each participant.
18 months to 3 year old
Children ages 18 to 36 months are introduced to the water through songs and games. The goals for this class are to have the children comfortable and happy in the water as well as learn the basic skills necessary to move on to Preschool level classes when age appropriate. Skills taught are blowing bubbles, kicking feet ?motor boat?, submersion, holding breath, floating front/back, and water entry/exit.
3 years and above
Beginning Swim Lessons Level 1
This class requires no previous experience in the water. Children will gain confidence to perform basic skills like kicking with the instructor, floating on front/back, superman kicking, and submersion. This class is a fun way to introduce your child to swimming.
Beginning Swim Lessons Level 2
If your child is able to put their face in the water and exhale and can independently float on their stomach/back, they have the skills necessary to join our Level 2 class. Children will begin to perform skills such as front/back glides, superman kicking, freestyle and backstroke arm movements, and rolling over from stomach to back.
Novice Swim Lessons Level 3
If your child has mastered the skills taught in beginning level 2 classes they are ready to join our Level 3 class. Children will learn proper body position, arm movements for freestyle/backstroke, and proper breathing techniques. As they grow more confident in this level they will achieve swimming greater distances with proper techniques and body position
Advanced Swim Lessons Level 4
Advanced swimmers can swim 15 yards of freestyle and backstroke independently without assistance. This class will continue to focus on these 2 strokes and an introduction into more swimming disciplines (Breast & Butterfly). In addition, children will be taught proper techniques in race start diving.
