Level Descriptions & Class Schedules
Age: 4 weeks – 5 mo
Children and their parents will discover the joys of water in a calm and inviting environment. We know that being in the water with your little one is an amazing and rewarding experience and this is a wonderful time to explore the joy of water with your infant. This is a free class for children up to 6 months old. Children will be promoted to Little Swimmers 1 when they turn 6 months old. Parents are in the water with their child for the duration of the class. *Water Babies are NOT eligible for make-ups. If a student misses class for 2 consecutive weeks without a written doctor’s note, they will be automatically withdrawn from the class.
Little Swimmers 1
Age: 6 mo – 15 mo
Swimmers are in the water with their parents and the instructor. We try to establish an environment where children will feel safe and comfortable. Infants have a natural inclination to water and, in the proper situation, can learn many basic swimming skills at a very young age. Children will learn to blow bubbles, kick, float on their backs, and swim underwater, as well as basic water safety. Parents are in the water with their child for the duration of the class.
Little Swimmers 2
Age: 16 mo – 2 ½ years
Water safety is a very important aspect of the Little Swimmers 2 class. Parents and their children work together with an instructor and learn to climb out of the pool independently, how to properly do safety jumps and swim back to the wall, back floats, and wall-walking. Children in the LS2 class are also challenged to learn basic swimming skills and techniques, such as flutter kicks with reaches, kicks on their backs, and rollover breathing, which are skills that are also taught in our older group classes. Children who are 2 1/2 years old and older should enroll in Angelfish. Parents are in the water with their child for the duration of the class.
Little Swimmers 3
Requirements: Must be at least 24 months, have completed 2 months in Little Swimmers 2, AND be recommended to LS3 by an instructor. Invitation only.
Little Swimmers 3 is our most advanced Infant/Toddler class for children who have completed the Little Swimmers 2 class and are ready for a more structured group class. The student to teacher ratio for this class is 4 children to 1 instructor and parents are expected to stay in the water for the first few weeks or until the instructor feels they no longer need to be in the water. Children in the LS3 class work on many of the same skills as the Puffer Fish class. Students will learn to breathe using the roll-over method and will begin swimming several feet independently. Parents are in the water for a minimum of 2-4 weeks.
Requirements: Ages 2 1/2 – 3 1/2 and never been through the SCSC Infant/Toddler classes.
Angelfish is our first level for children ages 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 who have not been through Little Swimmers or it has been more than 2 months since the student was enrolled in Little Swimmers 2. This class focuses on teaching children to enjoy water. Students will focus on learning to put their face in the water, blow bubbles, float on their back, and go under the water all while assisted by one of our instructors. It is recommended that parents bring a bathing suit to the first lesson if they anticipate their child being hesitant or fearful. Although this is very common and our instructors are trained to work with fearful children, we believe that parents are the primary source of comfort to their child and we encourage the parents to join their child on deck or in the water. Parents are welcome to be in the water for the first 1-2 weeks and should plan on getting in.
Average Age: 3 – 5 years
This class is for children who have been promoted from Angelfish or are 3 years old and new to our program, but are comfortable swimming without a parent in the water. The Puffer Fish class will teach the basics of stroke technique and water safety. Swimmers will learn front and back floats, how to swim underwater 2-3 feet, front and back flutter kicks, front reaches and kicks with their faces in the water, and an introduction to rollover breathing.
Average Age: 3 – 6
Children must be at least 3 years old and capable of going under water and swimming 2-3 feet independently. Most children enrolled in this class have completed our Puffer Fish class. The primary goals for swimmers in this class are to master proper technique for front flutter kicks and back flutter kicks, further develop their rollover breathing, and be able to swim 5-7 feet independently. Instructors will take this class to the big pool from time to time for jumps and to help them become accustomed to the different environment. Students will also start learning to breath to the side in preparation for Turtles.
Crabs 1 & 2
Age: 4+ and fearful/terrified or older beginner
We offer 2 older beginner classes for children who are either fearful/terrified or very hesitant about swimming. Whether it is due to a previous negative experience or busy schedules, many children enter our program with an overwhelming fear of water. These class will focus on helping students conquer their fears and become comfortable in water. Once students have overcome their initial fears, they will begin learning basic stroke technique, including front and back floats, kicking with their faces in the water, rollover breathing, and an introduction to side-breathing and backstroke. These classes are designed for fearful/terrified children over the age of 4 years old or older children who have never had lessons and need to learn very basic skills, such as those that would be taught in our Super Swimmers or Puffer Fish classes.
Average Age: 3 – 8
This class is considered a transition class for most children. Younger swimmers who are coming from the Clown Fish class will begin to swim longer distances. Older swimmers who are just entering our program, but have some basic swimming skills, will learn side-breathing. All swimmers will be introduced to backstroke and breaststroke kicks, when their instructor feels they are developmentally ready. Proper stroke technique is a focal point in this class and children will swim shorter distances in order to focus more on doing the strokes correctly.
This class will further develop proper freestyle technique and begin focusing more on backstroke and breaststroke technique. Students will still only swim half the length of the pool, in order to focus on their strokes and breathing. They will also be introduced to elementary backstroke and other safety skills. This class is the first step for students who are possibly interested in pursing recreational or competitive team swimming. Swimmers will begin swimming the length of our big pool using a kick board.
This is the first class where students will begin swimming the full length of the pool without a kick board. They will also begin learning rhythmic breathing, which is a more advance form of side-breathing. Swimmers will continue focusing on proper technique of backstroke and breaststroke, while increasing their distances. Butterfly and sidestroke will be introduced in this class, as well as flip turns.
Competitive Strokes Classes
Requirements: Completed Dolphins OR evaluated and recommended to Angler Fish
This class is run more like a recreational swim team. Consisting of up to 6 swimmers and running for 30-45 minutes, students will continue working on freestyle with rhythmic breathing, backstroke, and breaststroke, while building endurance. Swimmers will work towards being able to swim a full lap of freestyle, backstroke, and breaststroke.
Requirements: Completed Angler Fish OR evaluated and recommended to Sting Rays
Considered a pre-team level, the Sting Rays classes also have 6 swimmers per instructor and swim for 45 minutes. They will build on their current skills, while developing new more advance ones. Stroke technique and building endurance are the primary goals in this class. Students are expected to be able to swim longer distances and must be proficient in all strokes. Most of these classes swim twice per week for 45 minutes. There are a few once a week classes offered throughout the week.
Requirements: Completed Sting Rays OR evaluated and recommended to Sharks
Sharks is our highest non-competitive level. This class meets for an hour and works on refining technique and building endurance. Students will be expected to swim for longer periods of time. This class is designed to help swimmers prepare for swim team in a year-round setting. Most of the swimmers at this level go on to swim on our recreational summer swim team.
This program is designed to build endurance, develop swim team skills and promote swimming for fitness purposes. While some time will be used to fine-tune stroke technique, it is not the primary purpose of this program.
Conditioning classes will be offered multiple times throughout the week. Students must be swimming at our Angler Fish level or higher OR swam on the SCSC swim team in order to participate in the Conditioning Program. Students swimming at our Dolphins level or below are strongly encouraged to stay in a group class in addition to the conditioning class. The conditioning class will not be focusing on learning the strokes so it is important for the swimmers to know how to do the strokes. See the Conditioning page for additional information.
We offer lessons for adults at all levels. From beginners who need to learn the very basic skills of blowing bubbles and floating to more advanced swimmers who just want to brush up on their strokes, we can accommodate any need. Please contact us for availability.
