Stroke Swim Classes

Beginning Stroke School

Beginning Stroke School

Our approach to stroke instruction is unique because we have incorporated a series of exercises that promote improving a child’s core strength, breath, buoyancy, and balance before introducing arm motions commonly associated with the four competitive swim strokes.

Once your child has completed Pre-Stroke Group Classes or has reached the goals outlined for these classes in Private Lessons, they are ready for Stroke School! Our Stroke School is divided into 3 successive levels to meet the needs of every child. Beginning Stroke School is comprised of Gobies, Jellyfish and Turtles group classes.

Gobies classes focus on exercises that promote core strength, breath, buoyancy, and balance. Gobies begin swimming the length of the pool to build endurance. The focus also shifts from exercises that require children to swim in a stationary position to shifting their arms while continuing to kick and get air as necessary.
Jellyfish classes continue building upon exercises that promote breath, balance and buoyancy while integrating pulling and kicking
By the end of Turtles group class students know how to swim basic freestyle and backstroke and are ready to continue onto Intermediate Stroke School.
