— Water Aerobics — An excellent exercise improving overall fitness, tones the body, and reduces fat. Water exercise is kinder to joints as the water supports our bodies and offers more resistance for strength training. There is no need to buy special equipment or clothes. No swimming skills needed to perform water aerobics as your body remains vertical during the entire exercise program. — Preschool with Adult — The goal of this class is to help children (from ages 6+ months) become acquainted with the water and to teach parents how to help their children to become more comfortable in the water. — Preschool Aquatics — (Typically ages 3+) Beginning swimming, bobs, floats, bubble blowing. — Level 1 — (Typically ages 4-10) Children become comfortable with their face in the water and swimming on front and back with support. Skills worked on will be bobs, bubble blowing, floating with support, and swimming with assistance for 5 yards. — Level 2 — (Typically ages 4-10) The purpose of this course is to give students success with fundamental skills. Students will practice skills such as treading water, floating and swimming 5 body lengths horizontally. — Level 3 — The purpose of this course is to build on the fundamentals of locomotion and safety skills learned in level 2. Students will practice skills such as jumping into deep water, diving, front crawl with rhythmic breathing for 15 yards, and elementary backstroke for 15 yards- begin breast stroke. — Level 4 — The purpose of this course is to develop confidence and competency in aquatic locomotion and safety skills.
