Intermediate Swim Lessons (Group)

Intermediate Swim Lessons are designed to continue and refine the beginner abilities. Now that children are safe and comfortable, swim technique starts to be a priority. New skills will be introduced such as diving, rhythmic/bilateral breathing, Backstroke and Elementary Backstroke. We also introduce treading water and endurance (laps). Emphasis is placed on being proficient at the front crawl (Freestyle), as this is the most common stroke. Typically ages 6 and up (we do offer a few classes for 4-5yr olds who meet the prerequisites).

  • Intermediate 1: Child can already swim whole lap (down and back) continuously and independently using freestyle and rhythmic rollover breathing.
    • To Promote: Based on SKILL, not AGE
      • Swim 2 laps (4 lengths) freestyle with side breathing, 1 lap (2 lengths) elementary backstroke (arms+whip kick), tread for 30 seconds (sculling arms, whatever kick)

  • Intermediate 2: Child can already swim 2 laps freestyle with side breathing, 1 lap elementary backstroke (arms+whip kick), tread for 30 seconds (sculling arms, whatever kick)
    • To Promote: Based on SKILL, not AGE
