Frogs & Tadpoles: 11:30am-12:00pm
(Age Guidelines: under 3) This is an interactive class and we recommend that the child has at
least the ability to hold his/her head up independently. The class will mimic much of the Flounder
Station, but will be catered to the age group and adult/child relationship. There will be a strong
emphasis on safety, water acclimation, and teaching through game/song and parent involvement.
Flounder: Water Exploration: 11:00am-11:30am or 11:30am-12:00pm
(Age Guidelines: 3-7) The objective of this station is to help students feel comfortable in the water
and enjoy the water safely. Students will be introduced to floats and bobs, as well as assisted
locomotion in the pool. Students will need to be capable of being in a class setting without parent
involvement. No experience necessary.
Jellyfish: Primary Skills: 11:00am-11:30am or 11:30am-12:00pm
(Age Guidelines: 3-8) Students learn to float without support and to recover to a vertical position.
This station marks the beginning of locomotion skills and adds to the self help and basic rescue skills
learned in Level 1. Students placed in this station have already achieved a sense of water acclimation and
no longer show hesitation in a pool setting.
Octopus: Stroke Readiness: 11:00am-11:30am or 11:30am-12:00pm
(Age Guidelines: 3-10) Students are taught to coordinate freestyle and backstroke. Elementary
backstroke and fundamentals of treading water will be introduced in this station. Students will
also begin the progression of diving and continue to learn safety skills.
Clownfish: Stroke Development: 11:00am-11:30am or 11:30am-12:00pm
(Age Guidelines: 3-12) The objective of this station is to refine both freestyle and backstroke.
Endurance will be increased in all skills learned in previous stations. Breaststroke, butterfly and
flip turn development will be introduced, as well as the next step of the diving progression.
Seashorse: Stroke Refinement: 11:00am-11:30am or 11:30am-12:00pm
(Age Guidelines: 3-14) The objective of this station is the coordination and refinement of all four
competitive strokes. Students will learn to swim all strokes legally, per swim team standards, at
increased distances. Students will finish both the diving and flip turn progressions and be able to
complete a 100 meter continuous swim.
