Swimmer Levels Swimmer levels make sure your child learns how to swim before they get in too deep. Each level challenges school aged children 5 years and older to develop safe entries, deep water support, underwater skills, and swimming strokes. Kids learn everlasting healthy habits by getting and staying fit.
Swimmer 1 These beginning swimmers will work on safe entries, exits and moving through the water. When ready they’ll do floats, glides and kicking on their front and back without assistance. They'll even explore jumping into deep water and treading water with their lifejackets on.
Swimmer 2 These children will be able to jump or side roll into deep water, tread water and swim (10-15 m) using either front crawl or back crawl. They'll try ‘vertical’ whip kick and begin to work on their endurance level by stepping into the world of fitness interval training.
