GROUP SWIM LESSONS

The Y’s swim lesson progression curriculum is designed to help participants reach their goals and provide a clear progression track.

Benefits of this approach include:

  • Accommodating students of varying abilities and ages
  • Fostering a sense of achievement and self-confidence
  • Staying grounded in a skill continuum that allows students to move easily from one stage to the next with clearly defined stages of progress along the way. See detailed information on the new skills taught in each of the stages >>
  • Encouraging students to have fun and develop new friendships through group activities
  • Improving communication about student’s progress

Students can register for one of eight stages under our three swim categories depending upon their age and current swim ability:

Accompanied by a parent, infants and toddlers learn to be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness skills through fun and confidence-building experiences, while parents learn about water safety, drowning prevention, and the importance of supervision.

Stage A / WATER DISCOVERY: Parents accompany children in stage A, which introduces infants and toddlers to the aquatic environment through exploration and encourages them to enjoy themselves while learning about the water.

Stage B / WATER EXPLORATION: In stage B, parents work with their children to explore body positions, floating, blowing bubbles, and fundamental safety and aquatic skills.

Students learn personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning two benchmark skills:

  • Swim, float, swim – sequencing front glide, roll, back float, roll, front glide, and exit
  • Jump, push, turn, grab – sequencing jumping in, pushing off, resurfacing, turning around, grabbing onto the wall and exiting the water

Stage 1 / WATER ACCLIMATION: Students develop comfort with underwater exploration and learn to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water. This stage lays the foundation that allows for a student’s future progress in swimming.

Stage 2 / WATER MOVEMENT: Students focus on body position and control, directional change, and forward movement in the water while also continuing to practice how to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water.

Stage 3 / WATER STAMINA: Students learn how to swim to safety from a longer distance than in previous stages in the event of falling into a body of water. This stage also introduces rhythmic breathing and integrated arm and leg action.

Stage 4 / STROKE INTRODUCTION: Students develop stroke technique in front crawl and back crawl and learn the breaststroke kick and butterfly kick. Water safety is reinforced through treading water and elementary backstroke.

Having mastered the fundamentals, students learn additional water safety skills and build stroke technique, developing skills that prevent chronic disease, increase social-emotional and cognitive well-being, and foster a lifetime of physical activity.

Stage 1 / WATER ACCLIMATION: Students develop comfort with underwater exploration and learn to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water. This stage lays the foundation that allows for a student’s future progress in swimming.

Stage 2 / WATER MOVEMENT: Students focus on body position and control, directional change, and forward movement in the water while also continuing to practice how to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water.

Stage 3 / WATER STAMINA: Students learn how to swim to safety from a longer distance than in previous stages in the event of falling into a body of water. This stage also introduces rhythmic breathing and integrated arm and leg action.

Stage 4 / STROKE INTRODUCTION: Students develop stroke technique in front crawl and back crawl and learn the breaststroke kick and butterfly kick. Water safety is reinforced through treading water and elementary backstroke.

Stage 5 / STROKE DEVELOPMENT: Students in work on stroke technique and learn all major competitive strokes. The emphasis on water safety continues through treading water and sidestroke.

Stage 6 / STROKE MECHANICS: Students refine stroke technique on all major competitive strokes, learn about competitive swimming, and discover how to incorporate swimming into a healthy lifestyle.
