In Level 4, your child is ready to learn the breaststroke. They’ll need to do a swim evaluation demonstrating their freestyle and backstroke skills.
In this six-week class, your child will continue honing their freestyle and backstroke skills, and develop the following breaststroke techniques:
- The Kick: This is the most difficult part of the stroke. To help them learn quickly, we’ll teach the kick in four parts.
- The Arms: Once they’ve mastered the kick, your child will add arms, learning the proper circular movements that happen entirely underwater.
- Head & Breath: Your child will learn how to position and move their head as well as when to take each breath.
- All Together Now: They’ll first practice these positions on the wall, then put them all together in the lane!.
All classes are taught by certified swim instructors and open to swimmers of All abilities.
