​Non-Swimmer I (ages 3 and up)
Prerequisite: The requirements for this class are minimal. However, students MUST be at least three years of age, potty-trained, and able to follow verbal commands. Students who show extreme fear of the water should enroll in private lessons.

Description: This class will focus on flotation, kick (boards), breath control, arm movement and swimming independently.

Non-Swimmer II (ages 3 and up)
Prerequisite: Students MUST be able to SWIM at least five feet without assistance. Students should be able to place their entire face underwater and use a kickboard without assistance. Students should also be FEARLESS and be able to support themselves on the wall for extended periods of time.

Description: The class is similar to Non-Swimmer I, but will proceed at a much more rigorous pace.

Swimming Beginner (ages 4 and up)
Prerequisite: Students MUST be able to SWIM the width of the pool (20-30 feet) without assistance and be able to support themselves on the wall for extended periods to time. Students should also be able to place their faces under the water for approximately three seconds.

Advanced Beginner (ages 5 and up)
Prerequisite: Students MUST be able to comfortably swim 60 feet showing a proper kick and basic freestyle arm stroke (with faces in the water). Students should also be able to hold their breath for approximately eight seconds.
