Preschool – Surfers

Preschool – Surfers

The Preschool lessons are divided into six levels. They provide an introduction to swimming skills using proven, achievable, and age-appropriate progressions. Games and challenges are incorporated into each lesson, keeping the children active and enthusiastic in the water, while maintaining a program that is lively and fun.

It is the intent of the Surfers level to orient the developing swimmer to deep water, introduce elementary swimming skills, including arm and leg action and breathing coordination.

Children from 3 to 5 years-old will learn core skills such as the sitting/kneeling dive, kick with side breathing, and surface support in deep water, for 30 seconds. They will also practice their endurance through 15m front and back swims with arm action and kick.
