Description of Levels:

Pool School 1

This introductory level involves building the swimmers’ confidence in order to be comfortable and move freely in the water. At this level, kids will learn basic skills such as bobbing, body position, entries, and kicking. The swimmers will be introduced to our innovative teaching tool, “The Double-Lane”.

30 minutes /2 times per week
Tuesday and Thursdays
6:30-7pm OR 7-7:30pm

          Pool School 2

This level further improves the skills learned in Pool School 1. In addition, floating, swimming underwater, underwater streamline, flutter and dolphin kick are introduced. More emphasis will be placed on learning how to breathe while performing these basic movements. At this point the swimmers are ready to take their skills to the “The Double-Lane”. The main goal through this progression is to take the swimmers from vertical to a horizontal plane on their front and back.

1 Hour /2 times per week
Tuesday and Thursdays

Pool School 2 Advanced

This level progresses to the 25-meter tank. To ensure safety, a light safety belt will be used as they continue to build confidence on “The Double-Lane”. The goal will be to keep the kids moving and to focus on balance and confidence. Autonomous swimming will be encouraged at the swimmer's comfort level. Butterfly, flip turns and basic breast stroke movements will also be introduced.

1 Hour /2 times per week
Tuesday and Thursdays

Pool School 3

This level has swimmers using the full length of “The Double-Lane”. Autonomous swimming will be encouraged with emphasis on kicking and pulling. All 4 strokes will be introduced through a progression of skills on the Double Lane. There will be a strong emphasis on breathing as this is the key to great swimming.

1 Hour /2 times per week
Tuesday and Thursdays

Pool School 4

This Level progresses to the main competition tank. Focus will be on the development of essential basic skills of four competitive strokes, starts, and turns.  All of the progressions will be adapted to the various levels of each individual. The intention of this group is to prepare swimmers to join the Lasers Competitive Program
