Swim Kids Level Descriptions


Level 1Provides an orientation to the water & the pool area and introduces floats and glides with kicks.  Children build their endurance by improving distance.
Level 2This level helps the child build skills in front and back swims.  Children are introduced to deep water activities and proper use of a personal flotation device (PFD). Endurance is built on flutter kicking and with assisted glides
Level 3This level provides an introduction to front crawl as well as the foundation for making wise choices on where and when to swim.  Diving is introduced and children will work on floats and changing direction.  15 meter swim
Level 4The front crawl, back glide and shoulder roll for back crawl are further developed.  Children work on kneeling dives, surface support and develop a greater sense of self safety by understanding their own limits.  25 meter swim.
Level 5Back crawl is introduced, along with sculling skills and whip kick on the back.  Children try stride dives and receive an introduction to safe boating skills.  50m swim.
Level 6Front and back crawl continue to be refined as the elementary backstroke is introduced.  Children are also introduced to safety on ice, elementary rescue with throwing assists, treading water and the front dive.  75 meter swim.
Level 7More front crawl, back crawl and elementary back stroke.  Whip kick is introduced.  Children learn about airway and breathing obstructions, and participate in timed treading water for increasing endurance.  150m swim
Level 8Provides an introduction to the breaststroke, feet first surface dives and rescue entries.  Children learn about the dangers of open water, hypothermia and practice rescue breathing. 300 meter swim.
Level 9Front crawl, back crawl, elementary back-stroke and breaststroke continue to be refined.  Work on head-first shallow dives and standing dives and learn about wise choices, peer influences and self-rescue from ice. 400m swim.
Level 10 Introduction to vertical dolphin and scissor kick as a warm-up/cool down stroke for fitness.  Will learn about sun safety, rescue of others from the ice, and head-first and feet first shallow dives.  Endurance is built using 500 m swim.
