Level 1

This class is for swimmers learning freestyle & backstroke. The focus during these 30 minute practices are to further develop the swimmer’s stroke skills in freestyle and backstroke while also introducing flip turns and body dolphins. Swimmers are expected to swim two laps with a flip turn before graduating to level 2. Swimmers must be able to swim freestyle and backstroke without assistance in the pool to begin in this group.
