L’il Dippers – Dippers

L’il Dippers – Dippers

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 Dippers level to orient the beginner to water, assist him or her to complete deep water activities with and without support, as well as to introduce him to underwater swim, while staying confident in the water.

Children from 3 to 5 years-old will learn core skills such as the standing dive, they will have an introduction to front and back crawl, and will learn surface support in deep water, for 45 seconds. They will also practice their endurance through 25m front and back swim with arm action and kick.
