Each Little Rays swim session is 2 weeks long and will last for 30 minutes. 10 classes are $125. For ages 3-7 for swimmers with little or no experience in the water.
- Level 1 - We will be working on the following: basic water safety, blowing bubbles, kicking, learning to float, beginning strokes. Swimmers who are not comfortable putting their face in the water or are brand-new to lessons should sign up here. Goal will be that swimmers will be able to blow bubbles, bob from head under water(water safety), float on front & back and begin kicking and using arms with assistance.
- Level 2 - Swimmer should be comfortable putting their face in the water, blowing bubbles, and kicking. We will continue working on: water safety, floating, kicking with and without a kickboard. We will build on beginning strokes to include breathing for freestyle, proper backstroke, and streamline. Goal will be that swimmers will be able to propel themselves forward on front and back for a few strokes without assistance. Swimmers will be comfortable kicking, breathing to the side and understand the basics of freestyle and backstroke with assistance.
- Level 3 - Swimmer should be able to put face in and propel themselves in the water in some way (it doesn't have to look like a proper stroke). Swimmers will continue to work on previous levels while building on skills for freestyle, backstroke, and learning breaststroke. Goal is for swimmers to be able to swim across the shallow end without assistance or putting their feet down by the end of the session.
