(ages 6 and up) Level 1 is for beginning swimmers who have had very little or no swim instruction. The focus is on developing elementary aquatics skills, positive attitudes, good swimming habits, and safe practices in and around the water. Level 1 skills include: safely entering/exiting the water, blowing bubbles, bobbing, opening eyes underwater to retrieve submerged objects, front and back floating and gliding, alternating arm and leg action, combining stroke movements, and treading water. Most skills are performed with support.

(ages 6 and up) The goal of Level 2 is to help swimmers gain familiarity with fundamental skills and achieve success without support.

Students work on floating, gliding, flutter kicking, front and back crawling, turning over from front to back and back to front, retrieving objects, and jumping into water or their head.
