Winter Swim Lesson- Stage 4

IN 2018, OUR SWIM LESSON PROGRAM CHANGED TO THE YS SAFETY AROUND WATER PROGRAM. THIS PROGRAM TEACHES CHILDREN OF ALL AGES AND FROM ALL BACKGROUNDS THAT WATER CAN BE FUN, NOT SCARY. SAFETY AROUND WATER FOCUSES ON WATER SAFETY AND SELF-RESCUE SKILLS THAT HELP PREVENT DROWNING. STUDENTS DEMONSTRATE BASIC COMPETENCY BY LEARNING BENCHMARK SKILLS THROUGH VARYING STAGES OF CURRICULUM. KNOWING HOW TO BE SAFE AROUND WATER IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT LIFE SKILLS WE CAN TEACH OUR CHILDREN. IT GIVES THEM CONFIDENCE, AND IT CAN SAVE THEIR LIVES. Stage 4: Introduces basic stroke technique in front crawl and back crawl. Also reinforces water safety through treading water and elementary backstroke. Registration: Jan 13th-Jan 27th Program dates: Feb 5th-Feb 28th Days/Times: Tues/Thurs from 5:30pm-6:15pm Cost: $35 members and $55 non members
