SWIM LESSONS GREENWOOD

SWIM LESSONS GREENWOOD

BUILDING CONFIDENCE…SAVING LIVES

At the YMCA,  we believe the ability to swim is a critical life skill that everyone at any age or ability should have the opportunity to learn. When you learn to swim, you gain confidence and acquire the water safety skills needed to enjoy activities in and around water!

CLASSES ARE AVAILABLE FOR ALL AGES, LEVELS & ABILITIES

  • Parent-Tot: 6 – 24 months accompanied by an adult
  • Preschool: 2 – 5 years
  • School Age: 6 – 12 years
  • Teen-Adult: 13 years & up
  • Gator Academy: 4 – 12  years (level 6 advanced swim lessons)
  • Special Needs Adaptive Lessons: 2 years & up
  • Private Lessons: 5 years & up

Cancellations

The YMCA reserves the right to cancel classes due to less than minimum registration. (must have 2 participants to hold a class) Cancellation decisions will be made the day prior to the start of class. Attempts will be made to reach those registering by phone and email to inform them of cancellation. Should the YMCA need to cancel a class, a full refund or credit will be issued to those registered for the program. If a class is cancelled due to weather conditions, the Y will make up the cancelled class.

Makeup Policy

Program participants register for classes on specific dates and times. Unless the YMCA cancels a class, and provides for a makeup, attendance in scheduled classes is the responsibility of the participant. We cannot provide makeup classes or allow the participant to attend a different class.

 

 

 

 

PRESCHOOL 2-5 year Oct-Dec 5:30PM

Greenwood
10/27/20 - 12/10/20
VIEW

PRESCHOOL:  {1:4} Instructor to student ratio

Tuesday/Thursday 5:30-6:30 pm for two weeks

SESSION = (4) 1 hour swim lessons

**must have 2 participants enrolled to hold a class**

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—and jump, push, turn, grab.

Water Acclimation, Water Movement, and Water Stamina (levels 1-3) students are taught the recommended skills for all to have around water including safe water habits, underwater exploration, and how to swim to safety and exit in the event of falling into a body of water. Activities, games, and drills, geared to reinforce learning, are utilized heavily as students progress in this skill-based approach to swimming.

Stage Descriptions:

  • 1 / Water Acclimation  Increases comfort with
    underwater exploration and introduces basic self-rescue skills performed with assistance.
  • 2 / Water Movement  Encourages forward
    movement in water and basic self-rescue skills
    performed independently.
  • 3 / Water Stamina  Develops intermediate self-rescue skills performed at longer distances than in previous stages.

Preschool students who have mastered the levels 1-3 move to:

Stroke Introduction, Stroke Development and Stroke Mechanics (levels 4-6) swimmers are introduced to the four competitive swimming strokes as well as rescue skills and healthy lifestyle habits.

Stage Descriptions:

  • 4 / Stroke Introduction  Introduces basic
    stroke technique in front crawl and back crawl and reinforces water safety through treading water and elementary backstroke.
  • 5 / Stroke Development  Introduces breast-stroke and butterfly and reinforces water safety through treading water and sidestroke.
  • 6 / Stroke Mechanics  Refines stroke technique on all major competitive strokes and encourages swimming as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Participants register by age group or ability and will be skill tested during the first 15 minutes of every new session to determine their stage of learning. This process allows swimmers to accelerate at their own pace and become confident swimmers.

Each participant will be advanced to the next level only when he or she proficiently and safely performs the skills within his or her level. We teach individually to each participant to advance their skills. We expect each participant to learn and progress at his or her own rate. Please know that learning to swim is progressive and usually takes more than one session for a child to become completely comfortable in the water!
