AQUATICS

SWIM STAGE

DESCRIPTIONS SWIM STARTERS

SWIM BASICS

Accompanied by a parent, infants and toddlers learn to be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness skills through fun and confidencebuilding experiences, while parents learn about water safety, drowning prevention, and the importance of supervision.

A / WATER DISCOVERY

B / WATER EXPLORATION

Parents accompany children in stage A, which introduces infants and toddlers to the aquatic environment through exploration and encourages them to enjoy themselves while learning about the water.

In stage B, parents work with their children to explore body positions, floating, blowing bubbles, and fundamental safety and aquatic skills.

Students learn personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning two benchmark skills:

1 / WATER ACCLIMATION

2 / WATER MOVEMENT

3 / WATER STAMINA

Students develop comfort with underwater exploration and learn to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water in stage 1. This stage lays the foundation that allows for a student’s future progress in swimming.

In stage 2, students focus on body position and control, directional change, and forward movement in the water while also continuing to practice how to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water.

In stage 3, students learn how to swim to safety from a longer distance than in previous stages in the event of falling into a body of water. This stage also introduces rhythmic breathing and integrated arm and leg action.

4 / STROKE INTRODUCTION

 / STROKE 5 DEVELOPMENT

6 / STROKE MECHANICS

Students in stage 4 develop stroke technique in front crawl and back crawl and learn the breaststroke kick and butterfly kick. Water safety is reinforced through treading water and elementary backstroke.

Students in stage 5 work on stroke technique and learn all major competitive strokes. The emphasis on water safety continues through treading water and sidestroke.

In stage 6, students refine stroke technique on all major competitive strokes, learn about competitive swimming, and discover how to incorporate swimming into a healthy lifestyle.

• S  wim, float, swim— sequencing front glide, roll, back float, roll, front glide, and exit • Jump, push, turn, grab

SWIM STROKES

Having mastered the fundamentals, students learn additional water safety skills and build stroke technique, developing skills that prevent chronic disease, increase social-emotional and cognitive well-being, and foster a lifetime of physical activity.

NEW YORK CITY’S YMCA

HERE FOR ALL Without the Y, I would have had to take another two to three years to finish school. The Y helped us stay together, helped me focus, and helped our family bring income into the household.

BE HERE WITH US FOR FELLOW NEW YORKERS Every dollar you give to the Y’s Annual Campaign can change the life of a child, teen or a family in need. No one is ever turned away. Your kindness can offer the chance of a lifetime to the people who need it most in every corner of New York City.

from violating this Code of Conduct.


EXERCISING COURTESY To make your YMCA experience safe and enjoyable, we ask all members to abide by the YMCA Code of Conduct and exhibit the values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility

1. Get oriented. Not sure how to use the equipment or what you should be doing? Orientations are free for all members!

2. Speak up. Report any incidents or accidents to a

uniformed staff member immediately. Notify a staff member if equipment is not working properly.

3. Be safe. Appropriate clothing and footwear for exercise

are required. Sandals, open-toed shoes, and street clothing, or other clothing that restricts movement are not allowed.

4. Get a buddy. We strongly encourage working out with a

partner and using a spotter when training with free weights.

7. Give others a turn by respecting the 30-minute time limit on all cardiovascular equipment if others are waiting.

8. Lock it up. No bags or coats in weight and cardio rooms. Daily lockers are reserved for your personal items while you are in the Y.

9. Youth are welcome. Before using the Fitness Center,

children ages 12 to 17 must complete an orientation session and submit a signed parental consent form to staff.

10. Hang it up. For your security and safety and the

consideration of others, please refrain from cell phone use in the fitness facilities.

5. Keep it simple. Our fitness equipment was not designed for the use of straps, belts, chains, ropes, and other devices designed for pulling or pushing the equipment. Doing so will compromise the stability of fitness center equipment and your own safety.

6. Please help keep facilities clean and safe by

wiping off equipment after use, returning all equipment to its proper place, picking up personal items, and removing plates from weight lifting bars when you are finished. Do not bring food, open containers, or coffee cups into the fitness center.
