All participants who satisfactorily complete the swimming program will receive a certificate. Again this year, for 13 year olds and others who qualify, we will be offering a Junior Lifeguard class I & II.

The Mommy & Me class is primarily concerned with getting your child comfortable and feeling safe in the water. During this class the Lifeguards will work with you and your child by playing games and singing songs. They will also work on getting your child to blow bubbles, kick their feet, splash around, and hold their breath under the water.
The Five & Six Year Olds class will consist of the child learning all the primary strokes such as: freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and elementary backstroke. In preparation of learning these strokes the child will learn how to put their face and eyes into the water and blow bubbles, kick with and without a kickboard, “big arms”, how to float on their backs, the proper leg and arm movement for breaststroke and elementary backstroke, and will eventually learn alternate breathing.
Seven & Eight Year Olds swim class will also consist of the child learning all the primary strokes with addition to one more stroke. These strokes are freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and elementary backstroke. The child will practice alternate breathing and work their way up to kicking and doing “big arms” at the same time. The child will also work on kicking drills on their stomach and back, and will review breaststroke and elementary backstroke. At this level the child will be perfecting their stroke. The child will also be swimming to the dock with a kickboard and getting comfortable with jumping off the dock and working their way up to diving. This will be done by teaching the child how to do an Indian dive (sitting down dive) followed by a standing dive.
Nine to Eleven Year Olds will be swimming all the strokes such as: freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, elementary backstroke, and will be introduced to sidestroke. These strokes will also be followed by swimming drills to prefect their stroke and make them a stronger swimmer. The child will be doing laps from the second rope to the dock using the strokes they have learned. While they are at the dock they will also work on treading water and practicing their dives.
