Primary Focus is Water Safety & Basic Aquatic Skills
Sand-fiddlers group lessons will place the most emphasis on having fun and developing basic aquatic skills while increasing comfort in and around the pool. Once students advance from the Sand-fiddlers group, they will have learned to be comfortable in the water, enter and exit the pool safely, put their face in the water, blow bubbles through their mouth and nose, float, kick and paddle with assistance and swim 6 feet independently, among many other skills.

The Stingrays group will continue to focus on comfort in the water and safety skills but will have an increased emphasis on learning to become proficient in freestyle (front crawl). Once swimmers advance from the Stingrays group, they will have learned to fully submerge, float on their stomach & back, glide with a streamline, tread water for 30 seconds and swim freestyle for 10 yards independently, among other skills.
