Swim Instruction Levels
Nemos: This beginning level for children teaches them to be comfortable and safe in the water. Instructors will focus on introducing children to the water and improving their safety and comfort in the swimming pool. The class will feature activities such as: face in the water, wet the hair, submerging, opening eyes, front glide, back glide, breath control, moving around comfortably, blowing bubbles and having fun in the class with aquatic recreation, gaining confidence and interest in swimming. We highly recommend this level for children who have never taken lessons, preferably children between 3 and 5 years old.
Sea Turtles: This level marks the begging of independent aquatic locomotion skills. Children continue to explore using simultaneous and alternating arm and leg actions on the front and back to gain more proficiency for strokes. This class will introduce exercises in the water such as: arm movement, body position, leg movement, floating and blowing bubbles, all connected with free style and backstroke. This level is recommended for children that are confident in the water but never had lessons, or children that have taken and passed Nemos level.

They will be able to swim 50 yards with each of the strokes. This group is for children that are confident in the water and know the basic swimming skills of free style and backstroke. At this level the arm position, legs exercises, breathing, turns, tread water and diving will be practiced. Butterfly will be introduced in this class. The focus of this group is for children that already know basic skills of freestyle and backstroke or for children that passed the Sea Turtles level.
