Preschool Swim

SHRIMP DIP - Parent/child class ages 6 to 36 months (Sturgeon Bay & Northern Door)
Water adjustment skills, fun and games for parent and child.  Classes are designed to encourage parnet/child learning in a safe, positive setting.  To avoid overcrowding  only one adult/one child.

RAINBOW - For children ages 2 1/2-3 1/2  years, without parent (Sturgeon Bay)
In Rainbow, the most elementary aquatic skills will be taught, which children learn to build on as they progress through the Pre-school and Youth Aquatics Programs.  At this level, children start developing good attitudes and safe practices around the water.

PIKE - Ages 3 to 5 years (Northern Door)
In Pike, the most elementary aquatic skills will be taught, which children learn to build on as they progress through the Pre-school and Youth Aquatics Programs.  At this level, children start developing good attitudes and safe practices around water.

EEL - Ages 3 to 5 years (Sturgeon Bay & Northern Door)
The objectives of Eel are to build on the basic aquatics skills learned in Rainbow and to give children further success with fundamental aquatic skills performed to a slightly more advanced degree than Pike.  Most skills in this level are performed with assistance.  This level makes the beginning on independent aquatic locomotion skills.  Children continue to explore using simultaneous and alternating arm and leg actions on the front and back to gain more proficiency for future strokes. Eel also adds to the self-help and basic rescue skills introduced in Pike.

STARFISH - Ages 3 to 5 years (Sturgeon Bay)
 
The objective of Starfish is to build on the skills learned in Rainbow and Eel by providing additional guided practice of basic aquatic skills at slightly more proficient performance levels and greater distances and times.  Skills in this level are performed independently.  The children are taught to improve coordination of combined simultaneous arm and leg actions and alternating arm and leg actions.  As in all levels, the children learn additional safety skills and improve comprehension of previous knowledge.

 

WHITEFISH - Ages 3 to 5 years (Sturgeon Bay)                                                                                    The objective of Whitefish is to develop competency in the freestyle and back strokes. Endurance swimming will be added to the starfish level as well as rotary breathing and efficency. An introduction to the breast and butterfly strokes will be included. This is the highest level of preschool swimming, designed for exceptional swimmers.
