ADVANCED BEGINNER LEVEL 3

Level 3 is also called "Stroke Readiness."
In this level the children learn to coordinate the front crawl and back crawl.  All strokes are introduced at a very basic level.  The children learn the mechanics of the various strokes and build the confidence to perform in the deep end. 
 
We will begin testing today, August 16th.  Swimmers will receive a Red Cross certification card if they can complete the following tasks:
swim unassisted the length of the pool on both their stomaches and backs.
jump into deep water and swim to safety
swim underwater, 10 feet.
