Primary Skills 1: Age 3 to 5

An enthusiastic time for tots to expend energy, our goal is to increase comfort level and reinforce age appropriate safety skills.  Bubbles, barbells, and kick boards will be introduced to enforce forward propulsion and to strengthen kicking.  Back float, forward propulsion, freedom to use arms and jumps are all features for participating at this level.  Once a participant is able to doggie paddle, put his or her face in the water, and back float they can move on to Primary Skills 2.
