Our Goldfish class is for beginner 4-5 year old students with little to no experience. Our progression based curriculum introduces students to swimming with little incremental challenges in the form of skills. Skills are activities designed to help students gradually become more comfortable in the water while learning how to swim at a higher level. This level works to develop a foundation for independent freestyle swimming.
Goldfish immediately get to work on learning very important water safety and survival skills. Safety is important throughout all our programs and classes. Students are introduced to (or continue developing) their back float, sitting dive, front float, jumping into the pool, and monkey crawls. Each class works on arm and kick development in preparation for future stroke and breathing techniques. Understanding how serious swimming is, we like to keep our weekly curriculum structured with jam-packed opportunities for fun and engaging activities. As comfort levels rise, students experience the challenge and excitement of submerging underwater like a Goldfish; challenging themselves to hold their breath, retrieve submerged toys, and resurface to a supportive instructor and classmates. Our goal is a safe, fun, nurturing environment where little ones can develop sound, positive feelings about themselves and learning.
