Swim School at the J!
Ages 3.5 – 5
Where young children get a head start on swimming, gain confidence in the water and begin working on basic swimming skills, while interacting with an instructor and other children in a fun and safe environment.

Through our comprehensive curriculum children will learn skills, build knowledge, gain confidence and feel safe in and around water. Using a step-by-step approach to learning, students will build proficiency as they successfully progress through levels that teach the four essential strokes: freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. Most importantly, our curriculum is built in such a way that children will be excited to advance through each level.

Every swimmer will receive a certificate in which he or she will be able to see the specific skills needed to progress to the next level. Swimmers will be awarded a new color of swim cap as they progress through each level. Each semester ends with a free swim competition.

 

Level 1 – Minnows
Light Blue Swim Cap
Beginning swimmers learn the basics of water comfort and safety as they blow bubbles, put their faces under water, float, and flutter kick in prone and supine positions.
