Grade School / Youth – 5+ Years

Swim Strokes: Grade School (5+ Years)

Having mastered the fundamentals, students learn additional water safety skills and build stroke technique, developing skills that prevent chronic disease, increase social-emotional and cognitive well-being, and foster a lifetime of physical activity.

1 / Water Acclimation

Students develop comfort with underwater exploration and learn to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water in stage 1. This stage lays the foundation that allows for a student’s future progress in swimming.

4 / Stroke Introduction

Students in stage 4 develop stroke techniques in front crawl and back crawl and learn the breaststroke kick and butterfly kick. Water safety is reinforced through treading water and elementary backstroke.

2 / Water Movement

In stage 2, students focus on body position and control, directional change, and forward movement in the water while also continuing to practice how to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water.

5 / Stroke Development

Students in stage 5 work on stroke techniques and learn all major competitive strokes. The emphasis on water safety continues through treading water and sidestroke.

3 / Water Stamina

In stage 3, students learn how to swim to safety from a longer distance than in previous stages in the event of falling into a body of water. This stage also introduces rhythmic breathing and integrated arm and leg action.

6 / Stroke Mechanics

In stage 6, students refine stroke techniques on all major competitive strokes, learn about competitive swimming, and discover how to incorporate swimming into a healthy lifestyle.

Grade school levels 5 and 6 are offered as private lessons.

After Level 4 of swimming lessons, we encourage your child to join our Porpoise Club!
This is the level before our Tsunami Swim team!
