Ages 5+ Years
In Swim Strokes, learn additional water safety skills as well as build on their stroke technique.
Students enrolling in Swim Strokes must be able to swim an entire length of the pool unassisted. Although they’ve mastered the fundamentals, their developmental levels determine which skills we introduce and build on as they progress. Skills developed in Swim Strokes can help prevent chronic diseases, improve social and emotional well-being, increase their cognitive awareness, and foster a lifelong love of physical activity. To maximize safety, lifeguards are always on the pool deck during lessons.
