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.

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

This class will continue to focus on these 2 strokes and an introduction into more swimming disciplines (Breast & Butterfly).
