Big Waves
Celebrate your child’s independence in the water. This is the first class that children participate in the lesson without a caregiver. They must be comfortable separating from their parents and be able to follow safety rules. Children are encouraged to develop arm strokes, kicking, floating and submerging independently. Safety lessons will be more in depth. While this class is very often a beginners class, we also welcome the more advanced swimmer of this age that isn't quite ready to move up to Learn To Swim. The class will be divided appropriately after the first day in order that all levels of swimmer get the most out of these lessons. While it may take a while to pass this class keep in mind your child is learning several levels and with differing levels of assistance.

Now you’re really a swimmer! Swimmers in this class are very confident and comfortable in the water while developing strokes such as dolphin kick, breast stroke and eventually butterfly and side stroke. We'll also practice rotary breathing and being able to swim the distance of our lap lane without stopping. Safety lessons become more in depth and cover more topics. While we have combined Levels 3 and 4 to be able to keep offering both levels, do not think for a minute that your child is missing out on any skills or information. They will be challenged to learn all 6 strokes, swim the length of our lap lanes several times during the lesson and be considered "water competent" according to the American Red Cross. Instructors are pushing students at this level to refine their strokes. Many participants are ready for swim team when they complete this class.
