Rising Swami I
Rising Swami I is for our beginner level SWAMIs who are ready to learn more than the basic water safety skills they mastered with swim lessons. At this level we work in small group settings and work individually with each child to help them develop a positive relationship with the water and give them an introduction to an active and versatile set of swimming skills. Each child is lead through the beginning phases of all four swimming strokes. Rising Swami I Green is like the "entry-level" foundation for those who are brand new to competitive swimming, placing an emphasis on being a nurturing, supportive environment. Practices are held two times per week.
Generally for children ages 6-10 that includes basic water safety skills, stroke instruction, and dryland fitness. Below are the requirements for joining Rising Swami I Green. (Note: the team will consider children younger than 6 years of age if they meet the requirements listed below):
- Must have the ability to swim 25 yards unassisted
