Group Swim Levels offered:

Tadpoles. For the beginner swimmer (at least 3 years old and potty trained), who cannot yet swim independently and may be unsure of the water. Children will work on getting face/head wet, blowing bubbles, floating, and playing basic water games. The focus of these lessons is for children to become more water safe and feel comfortable in the water. Sessions take place in the shallow section of the L pool with guardians encouraged to be in the pool.​

Goldfish. This level will help assist and develop children who are near to passing the red or white band test but need more support in order to do so. Children will be divided by skill set. The children working towards the red band will focus on basic crawl and breathing skills, as well as reinforcing the basic skills of jumping and coming out of the water safely. The children working towards the white or blue band will focus on treading water, and deep end swimming.

Background on the Band Testing:

RED BAND – For access to the slide and long area of the L-Pool up to the 5-foot line: Must swim 2 widths of the pool without stopping except to turn nor touching the bottom (30 total yards, typically starting at the slide and swimming to the other side of the pool and back). Either freestyle with arms coming out of the water or breast stroke are acceptable strokes for this test.

WHITE BAND – For access to the diving area: Must swim continuous freestyle from the start of the test to the other side of the pool and then back, dive for a ring at the bottom of the diving well, and tread water for 60 seconds. The stroke quality does not have to be perfect but must be assessed as safe. For example, this means that the arms must come out of the water during freestyle and the stroke should be strong enough to ensure the child’s safe swim to the side.

BLUE BAND – For access to the lap pool: Must swim continuous, strong freestyle for 50 yards (2 laps in the lap pool) and tread water for 60 seconds.

Evaluations (for bands) on an ongoing basis by Manager on Duty.
