Swim Class 3

Swim Class 3 is all about becoming a more confident and skilled swimmer and spending more time in the big pool. The children will practice different dives and jumps, basic breaststroke and front and back crawl skills and the tuck and roll entry into water. Instruction takes place both in the children's and the big pool. After successful completion of Swim Class 3, the child is ready for the Water Rallies in the big pool.

Starting level requirements

To participate, the child is able to swim elementary stroke for 15 meters (both front and back using correct breathing technique), dive to the bottom of the children's pool (depth 80-90 cm) and jump feet first into deep water. The class is for children aged 5 and over.

Objectives

The goal is for the child to be able to swim at least 25 meters without stopping in the big pool (elementary stroke, 25 m front and 25 m back with good body position). Additional goals include the pencil jump, diving to a depth of 1.2 meters, a 5-meter underwater swim and the head-lead body dolphin.
