Level 1 - This is our introduction to the water class. Swimmers will learn skills that will help them become more comfortable in the water and how to be safe in and around pools.
Level 2 - Here swimmers will become more independent as they are guided through assisted and unassisted skill development. This level will continue building on the basics from Level 1.
Level 3 - By the end of this class, swimmers will be able to move more independently in the water through kicking and introductory arm movements. Students will build off the Level 2 basics.
Level 4 - The skills developed in the prior levels will now be coming together to help form the freestyle and backstroke. Students will practice moving through the water to achieve independence in their freestyle and backstroke.
Level 5 - Butterfly and breaststroke are the next two strokes to learn. Work will continue on refining ability from the prior levels so students can swim freestyle and backstroke.
Level 6 - Swimmers will be able to put their skills together to swim all 4 strokes, and also learn open turns and flip turns.
Pre-Club/Competitive Team - Upon completion of Level 6, swimmers will have the opportunity to tryout with a Rapids coach for possible placement on our competitive swim team, if interested. There will also be an option to try the summer Pre-Club swim team should there still be time remaining in the summer. The Pre-Club/Competitive Team are open to everyone.
If you have any questions, please contact Head Coach, Erik Richardson.
