This class is for our intermediate 8 Plus year olds who pass out of our beginner Starfish classes. A LOT of skills must be mastered to pass out of this class. As an introduction to strokes, the focus is on independence and breath control in the water while extending the swim distance and developing the coordination to gain independent breaths while swimming.
This is followed by proper breath control techniques as these students move into building endurance. Technical breakdown of the freestyle stroke also begins at this level.
- Prerequisite: Swim 3-5 meters Doggy Paddle with no floatation, blow bubbles, perform a comfortable streamline pencil manoeuvre and back-float
- Final Goals: 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.
Note: We don't have a big demand for this class as many 8+ Year old children have passed this stage. If you feel that your child would fit best into this class please add them to the waiting list. Once we have a least TWO children registered we will open a class. The next class up from this class is an Turtle 8+ Years. Please click here for the Turtle Classes.
