We believe that swim instruction is based on the motor skills of swimming (kicking, stroking, and rhythmic breathing). In addition, and more importantly, we feel that our swimmers need to mentally understand the properties of water; the how's and why's. We feel it is paramount to develop the whole person mentally and physically. Understanding the properties of water helps the swimmer with the readiness to swim. This is why our participants, in addition to learning stroke technique, also learn how we float, why we need to have certain body positions, why we breathe rhythmically, and how we achieve balance in the water.
This group is designed to prepare swimmers to take the next step into competitive swimming. By the end of this group, swimmers will be able to swim 25 yards of freestyle and backstroke.
