SWIMMING POOLS SWIMMING LESSONS

Swimming Lesson Overview: Children progress through a series of seven levels designed to teach the fundamentals of swimming and encourage aquatic exploration with guided instruction. In doing so, the Fargo Park District works to ensure a high level of competency is acquired by participants in both aquatic safety and swimming skills.

FP Pre-level (ages 4-5): Participants learn how to be safe around water and begin working on floating, arm and leg movements, and confidence in the water where they can touch

FP Level 1: Students continue building confidence by learning the basic swimming kicks and arm strokes (whip and flutter kicks and the front and back crawl) with support from floatation devices and the instructor

FP Level 2: Students focus on practicing the skill sets learned in level one and build the confidence to complete the skills without support from the instructor and/or floatation devices

FP Level 3: Students begin working on their swimming endurance along with more intermediate swimming skills such as the breaststroke and diving

FP Level 4: Students continue developing their swimming endurance and begin working on more advanced swimming strokes, such as the side stroke and butterfly Basic lifesaving practices, such as a reach-throw technique, are introduced that focus specifically on staying safe around pools, lakes and rivers

FP Level 5: Students continue to work on their basic, intermediate and advanced swimming strokes, focusing on endurance, refinement and mastery Various forms of diving, such as surface dives and diving from the starting blocks, are introduced

FP Level 6/Pre-lifeguarding: Students continue to develop their swimming endurance and begin learning intermediate life-saving skills Pre-lifeguarding skills are taught in order to prepare students to be good babysitters/nannies and/or future lifeguards This level is a benefit to any student who spends time around water during the summer months and ensures student are prepared to pass the water skills requirements for lifeguarding certifications

SWIMMING LESSONS

Fargo Park District offers swimming lessons during the summer season for ages 4-14. Participants must be 5 years old to begin in level 1. EXCEPTION: If a 4 year old has passed all requirements for Preschool Level, they may register for Level 1.
