LEVEL DESCRIPTION

Learn-to-Swim Program

Purpose: To introduce swimming for safety and develop swimmers by teaching stroke development of competitive strokes in order to prepare students for Barracudas Swim Team or swimming outside of the JCC and beyond.

 


 

STARFISH (Preschool 1)-

The first and initial step towards swimming takes place at this level. Water adjustment, comfort-ability and basic water safety practices and principles are discussed and taught regularly on a day to day basis. This level focuses on allowing the student to have confidence and comfort when in, around, or near water.

 

TADPOLE(Preschool 2)-

The introduction to arm and leg movement starts here. Building on the comfort, taught in the previous level, the instructors start teaching how to efficiently move and navigate once child is in the water. Through teaching water safety, blowing bubbles, and assisted front and back floating the students starting build the basic water skills necessary for swimming. This is also the level where arm and leg movements are introduced and practiced in a progressive manner that lines up with the proper technique found in the basic competitive strokes.
