Designed for preschool and elementary school children, a foundation of water safety and drowning prevention is made by teaching water adjustment and skill readiness.


Class Ratio: 1:6


Swim Basics Stage 1 – Water Acclimation:

The water acclimation class introduces swimmers to the pool and helps them develop safe water habits in a fun and encouraging environment. In water acclimation children develop comfort with underwater exploration, and learn to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water. This stage builds the foundation for the child’s future progress in swimming.


Swim Basics Stage 2 – Water Movement:

At this stage, children are taught skills that focus on body position & control, forward movement and directional change. The stage also reinforces how to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water.


Swim Basics Stage 3 – Water Stamina:

At this stage, children focus on swimming longer distances, and are introduced to rotary breathing and integrated arm and leg action. In the event of falling into a body of water, children learn how to swim, move to safety and exit.

At this stage, swimmers focus developing basic swimming strokes and personal water safety. The goals of the program include:

  • To develop the front crawl and backcrawl strokes

  • To introduce components of the breaststroke and butterfly strokes
