Swim Lessons

Aquatics Aquatics

Parent & Child

The purpose of this course is to familiarize children with the water and teach swimming readiness skills.


The purpose of this course is to facilitate developmentally appropriate learning of fundamental water safety and aquatic skills.

Level I

The purpose of this course is to orient children to the aquatic environment and gain some basic skills in the following categories: developing a positive attitude towards the water, water safety, and effective swimming habits.


The Tiger Sharks SWIM TEAM

Level II

The purpose of this course is to help participants develop simultaneous and alternating arm and leg actions on the front and back, laying the foundation for future stroke techniques.

Level III

The purpose of this course is to help participants perform skills at a slightly more advanced level and begin gaining rudimentary propulsive skills on both the front and back.

Level IV

The purpose of this course is to build endurance and improve aquatic skills by swimming the strokes learned at previous levels.

Level V

The purpose of this course is to help individuals increase the distance they can swim, refine their performance of all six strokes, and learn to perform flip turns on the front and back.

Level VI

The purpose of this course is to help individuals refine their strokes so that they can swim with greater efficiency and effectiveness over long distances.


The purpose of this course is to provide instruction to those who are still learning the basics as well as provide further instruction to those who are looking to improve skills & specific swimming strokes such as the front crawl, breast stroke & back stroke.

The goal of the program is to improve swimmers’ competence and confidence in a competitive, team oriented and fun environment. The team fosters individual excellence and team spirit and makes a positive and solid impact on the community. Our focus is instructional; however, this is NOT to be confused with the “learn to swim” program. Swimmers are expected to regularly attend scheduled practice sessions and team competitions. Parental support is needed to develop the level of success that will be needed for this program to strive toward excellence. Parent volunteers are required to help at home and away meets.

Ages 6-10 - Swimmers must be able to jump feet first into the deep end and swim 25 yards without stopping.

Ages 10-19 - Swimmers must be able to swim 25 yards without stopping using freestyle and backstroke. The Tiger Shark swim team travels to other venues to compete throughout their season. Travel is required.
