    • Class B: 10:55 – 11:25 a.m.
      • NOTE: there is no difference other than time between class A and B
        Appropriate for most Kindergarten to 1st Grade students. This class will focus on how to be more independent and explore different ways to move their bodies as well as buoyancy. This class takes place in the shallow end but will explore the deep end.
  • Level II Class
    • 10:20 – 10:50 a.m.
      • Appropriate for most 2nd to 3rd Grade students. Students in this class should already be able to swim about 5-10 yards independently and jump into deep water and return to the side. This will focus on beginning to develop basic crawl strokes and elementary backstroke.

    • 10:55 – 11:25 a.m. (Time may change depending on enrollment)
      • Appropriate for most students in 4th grade and above. Students must be comfortable in the deep end.

  • Pre-Competitive & Competitive Swim
    • 8 – 9 a.m.
      • This is for students in all grade levels that are looking for more of a team experience. This class will cover competitive skills including freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, starts & turns, reading a pace clock, and understanding workout structure.
  • **NEW** Adapted Swim
    • 11:30 a.m. – 12 p.m.
      • Lessons can be therapeutic and very calming for swimmers with special abilities. Water can soothe sensory overload and give swimmers a feeling of weightlessness and relief from physical discomfort. Other benefits include balance, coordination, strength, and range of motion. It’s not uncommon for
        parents to notice confidence and self-esteem boost, either. The purpose of this session will be to address individual needs as best as possible for swimmers with the following special abilities:

        • ADHD
        • Autism or ASD and other related developmental challenges
        • Cerebral palsy
        • Down syndrome
        • Sensory struggles
        • Other Physical challenges
