This class extends the swim distance to laps of the entire length of the pool. Freestyle endurance is built as students learn to maintain their stroke technique as they tire. The breaststroke and butterfly are introduced and taught from start to finish in this level. Though back kicks have been introduced in previous levels, backstroke arms are taught.
