L’il Dippers – Divers

L’il Dippers – Divers

The L’il Dippers lessons without parent participation 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 Divers level to orient the swimmer to deep water, assist him or her to experience the buoyant qualities of deep water, introduce elementary swimming skills, and develop comfort and confidence in deep water.

Children from 3 to 5 years-old will be introduced to side breathing and to surface support in deep water for 10 seconds. They will also practice their endurance through 10m front and back glide with kick in deep water, and 10m front and back swim with arm action and kick.
