YOUTH SWIM LESSONS
PRESCHOOL LESSONS
Turtles
Turtle class is the natural progression for children who have
participated in the Parent/Child classes. It is time for them to
leave their parent and become more independent in the water.
It is also perfect for young children who are taking lessons for
the rst time.
Pike
Pikes are still beginners but they are becoming increasingly
more independent. They are between being dependent on an
adult in the water and swimming in short bursts on their own.
Eel
Eels are similar to Pikes. However, they have gained strength
and endurance and can front paddle much farther with a more
refned technique. They can perform all tasks with better skills
and increased endurance.
Rays
Rays are becoming strong swimmers who are comfortable in a
water environment. They can swim longer distances without
foatation devices and are learning new stroke techniques.
Starsh
Starfsh are strong swimmers who will advance into the Guppy
progressive swim lessons when they turn six years old. They
are procient at front and back paddle, elementary back-
stroke, and they can tread water independently. They work on
improving their endurance and technique.
PROGRESSIVE LESSONS
Polliwog 1
Polliwog 1 classes are for those children who have either had
no experience in the water or very little. They need to learn
basic swimming skills and boost their condence in the water.
Polliwog 2
Polliwog 2 classes are for beginner swimmers who are gaining
condence and have built up some endurance.
Guppy
Guppies are gaining even more endurance and should not
need to rely on a oatation device unless working on tech-
nique drills. At this level, the swimmer becomes profcient at
front and back paddle and breaststroke is introduced.
Minnow
Minnows are becoming strong swimmers. They are profcient
in all strokes, other than the buttery, and are perfecting
their technique.
Fish
Fish are profcient swimmers who want to improve their
strength, endurance, and technique.
Flying Fish
Flying Fish are excellent swimmers who can swim all the
strokes. They are continuing to perfect their technique, par-
ticularly with the buttery.
Shark
Sharks are excellent swimmers who are building their endur-
ance to be able to become competitive swimmers.
Porpoise
Porpoise swimmers are athletes and swim team ready.

talents and skills to help children deepen their positive values, commitment to service and motivation to learn; help families build
stronger bonds, achieve greater work-life balance and become more engaged in their communities; help individuals improve their
well-being and connect with people who care.
