Star Leadership Program - Star 6

Star Leadership Program - Star 6

Building on the strong aquatic skills learned in the Star Swim program, swimmers in the Star Leadership program will continue to build on their confidence and competence in the water. They will learn to improve their physical fitness, basic first aid skills, and how to safely help others who are in trouble in the water. Each level has a component of learning how to teach others. Swimmers in these levels will also continue to be given opportunities to explore and progress in advanced swim skills, competitive swimming, synchronized swimming, water polo, and aquafitness.

It is the intent of the Star 6 level to increase endurance, develop first aid and resuscitation techniques, and explore areas of aquatics including water polo, synchronized swimming, and leadership through instruction.

Children from 6 to 15 years-old will learn options for advanced strokes. The core skills they will develop are Ranger First Aid, Star H20 proficiency, Star Recognition and Rescue, progressions, to use 'EGGS', to set a goal and create a plan to achieve it. They will exercise their endurance with combination swim on 600m.
