PRESCHOOL AQUATICS

To orient preschool-age children (from ages 3 years to 5 years) to the aquatic environment and to help them acquire rudimentary levels of basic aquatic skills without Parental Assistance. In this level, children will learn to blow bubbles, open their eyes under water, retrieve submerged objects, combine arm/leg actions on front/back, and tread with arm and hand action.

LEVEL 3 and 4 

To build on the skills in Level 2 by providing additional guided practice in deeper water. In this level, children will learn head-first entries from the side, rotary breathing, flutter/scissor/dolphin, breaststroke kicks on front, and front crawl/elementary backstroke.
