Baby Shark (Parent & Me): Our youngest swimmers joined in pool by a parent or designated adult who participates for the duration of the lesson. Intro to pool and water safety, water comfortability, blowing bubbles, and kicking + floating. Only offered in semi-private or group lesson formats. Tadpole (Level 0): Not yet comfortable in water without 1:1 assistance or floating devices, however they are comfortable hearing and following simple instructions with increasing independence. Tadpoles are working on obtaining water confidence, independence + comfort, solidifying fundamental skills (bubbles, kicking + floating), and getting an intro to freestyle stroke. No floating devices worn during lessons; tadpole swimmers will be taught to "hold the wall" or directed to sit on the wall for a resting position. Goldfish (Level 1): Swimmer is already comfortable in/around water and willing to go under/blow bubbles. Goldfish are working on floating independently, developing ability to self-propel, and practicing kicking with assistance on back and front. Piranha (Level 2): Swimmer is able to float and self propel with kick independently. Piranhas are focused on improving freestyle stroke, get an intro to back and breast strokes, have access to extra skill work (treading and swim starts) based on swimmer interest. Dolphin (Level 3): Swimmer is able to swim freestyle and backstroke unassisted and able to float and flutter kick on back unassisted. Dolphins will be working on improving breast, back and free strokes, get an intro to Butterfly stroke and more advanced swim starts/intro to dives. Dolphin level is preparatory for upcoming swim team members.
