Learn swimming skills and water safety; Youth will work towards proficiency in backstroke, whip kick and crawl stroke with side-breathing. Our specially designed Seattle Swims Lesson Program puts the emphasis on safety, fitness and fun! Our teaching techniques utilize well organized progressions for learning, plenty of practice and instructor feedback. We will group children by ability on the first day of class to provide the best opportunity for your child’s success. Floating, Gliding and Kicking: Children get comfortable putting their face in the water and practice front, side and back floating, gliding and kicking. These skills provide the foundation for all other swimming strokes Arm Strokes: Mastering the Crawl Stroke requires learning to roll from front to back while performing arm strokes. Once mastered we begin teaching side breathing. Students also work on strengthening kicking, proper body alignment, treading water and deep water swimming. Side Breathing and Whip Kick: Front Crawl Stroke with bilateral breathing and an introduction to whip kick are skills taught in this level.
