These lessons are for adults wanting to be comfortable and active in the water. Participants will learn how to float, submerge completely, propel themselves through the water on both the front and the back, and the basic front and back crawl strokes. The goal is to be able to swim a specified length (25 yards) and feel comfortable in deep water. The class is designed to prepare participants not only to experience swimming, but to participate in various recreational water activities.
This class is for the well-adjusted swimmer. Participants should be able to swim a length of the pool using any style and tread or float in deep water for one minute. The general goals include increased proficiency in the basic strokes, development of more advanced strokes and turns, greater understanding of safety, and the ability to use water as a medium for recreation and fitness.
