Swim Lessons - School Age (5-12 years)

Swim Lessons - School Age (5-12 years)

Students learn personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning two benchmark skills:

  • Swim, Float, Swim—sequencing front glide, roll, back float, roll, front glide, and exit.
  • Jump, Push, Turn, Grab

Activities, games, and drills geared to reinforce learning are utilized heavily as students progress in this skill-based approach to swimming.


In the first three Stages of (1) Water Acclimation, (2) Water Movement, and (3) Water Stamina students are taught the recommended skills for all to have around water, including safe water habits, underwater exploration, and how to swim to safety and exit in the event of falling into a body of water.

Upon completing Stages 1-3, students will have mastered the fundamentals of additional water safety skills and build stroke techniques, developing skills that prevent chronic disease, increase social-emotional and cognitive well-being, and foster a lifetime of physical activity.

In the following Stages of (4) Stroke Introduction, (5) Stroke Development, and (6) Stroke Mechanics, swimmers are introduced to:

  • Four competitive swimming strokes
  • Rescue skills
  • Healthy lifestyle habits
