Level 2 is for children who are ready to learn the basics of swimming strokes. Students will focus on: floating independently, swimming independently, front crawl and back crawl basics, and jumping into the pool unassisted.

Level 3 is for children who exhibit signs of water readiness for demonstration of strokes in deep water. Students are taught to coordinate front crawl and back crawl and are introduced to treading water and diving.

Level 4 is for children who have completed level 3 and are ready for continued stroke development. Students continue to work on improving strokes previously learned while learning elementary backstroke and sidestroke.

Level 5 is for children who show stroke proficiency. The emphasis here is on stroke refinement and endurance. Children will be swimming lengths of the pool as well as working on dives and flip turns.
