In this class we transition the unilateral side breathing learned in the Octopus Class into the traditional freestyle stroke, which is bilateral side breathing (to both sides). In addition to refining freestyle technique, our coaches continue to build the endurance of their students. Also, the elementary backstroke is taught from start to finish in this level. This stroke is a safety stroke rather than a competitive stroke, but is essential if ever faced with an open water situation.
- Prerequisite: Swims 10 meters with no floatation, face in the water for a 10 count, comfortable rolling to a back-float and can swim basic Freestyle and Backstroke.
