Star Leadership Program - Star 7

Star Leadership Program - Star 7

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 7 level to develop the advanced skills necessary for lifesaving, and various swimming skills.

Children from 6 to 15 years-old will learn to deal with a submerged victim in shallow water, the 'FITT' principle, water rescue and first aid situations, Star First Aid, to create and deliver activities, the principles of swimming, effective feedback, to teach water safety, and to help someone set and achieve a swimming goal. They will exercise their endurance with combination swim on 400m for 12 minutes.
