Parent Tot Aquatics 6 mo - 4 years

Parent Tot Aquatics is designed to familiarize young children with the water and prepares them to learn to swim. It is not designed to teach children to become good swimmers or to survive in the water on their own. Parent Tot aquatics gives parents safety information and teaches techniques to help orient their children to the water. It is designed to provide direction regarding supervision of water activities in a responsible manner.

PARENT TOT

Ages 6 months to 24 months. This class lays a foundation for basic swimming skills. Parent participation in the water is required. Parents are taught to safely work with their child in the water, how to support and hold their child and to encourage the child to participate and try each skill. Water safety topics will be introduced to the parents.

PARENT TOT

Ages 2 to 4 years. Parent participation in the water is required. Level 2 builds on the skills introduced in Level 1. Participants improve on these skills and become more independent in the water.

LEVEL 1

LEVEL 2

Preschool Aquatics 4 - 5 years

The primary objective of Preschool Aquatics is to promote the development of fundamental water safety and aquatic skills. In this program children learn the basics in a fun and non-threatening environment. It is not uncommon for students to repeat a level until they are able to demonstrate all the requirements for that level.

PRESCHOOL

Children learn the most elementary aquatic skills, which they continue to build on as they progress through the Preschool Aquatics and the Learn-To-Swim levels. At this level, children start developing good attitudes and safe practices around the water.

PRESCHOOL

The objectives are to build on the basic aquatics skills learned in Level 1 and to give children further success with fundamental skills performed at a slightly more advanced degree than Level 1. Most skills at this level are performed with assistance. This level marks the beginning of independent locomotion skills.

PRESCHOOL

This level builds on skills learned by providing additional guided practice of basic skills at a more proficient level and at greater distances. Children improve coordination by combining arm and leg actions independently.

LEVEL 1

LEVEL 2

LEVEL 3

Learn to Swim 6 years & Up

Learn-To-Swim teaches aquatic and personal water safety skills in a logical progression. Throughout the levels, participants build on their basic skills to learn various propulsive movements on their front, back, and side. As the levels increase, participants learn to refine the different strokes and build endurance. Each level includes an exit skills assessment that combines many of the skills learned in the level. The objectives are to learn basic personal water safety information and skills, to help children feel comfortable LEARN-TOSWIM LEVEL 1 and to enjoy the water. At this level, children learn elementary aquatic skills, safe swimming habits and positive attitudes about the water. The objective is to give participants success with fundamental skills. Children learn to float without support LEARN-TOSWIM LEVEL 2 and to recover to a vertical position. This level marks the beginning of true simultaneous and alternating arm and leg actions on the front and back. Children learn the survival float as well as the front crawl and elementary backstroke. This level introduces LEARN-TOSWIM LEVEL 3 children to scissor and dolphin kicks and builds on the fundamentals of treading water and diving. The objectives are to develop participants’ confidence in the strokes previously learned and increase their enLEARN-TOSWIM LEVEL 4 durance while furthering skills. Participants start to learn the back crawl, breaststroke, butterfly, sidestroke and basic turning at a wall.

LEARN-TOSWIM LEVEL 5 LEARN-TOSWIM LEVEL 6 14

The objectives of this level are coordination and stroke refinement. Flip turns on front and back are introduced. Level 6 is geared toward participants who want to enter competitive swimming or diving and achieve a high level of fitness. Register Online at: durangogov.org/parksandrec
