Week two has begun and after evaluation week and the rain we are now on a roll with lessons! This week we are working on the first set of skills and drills for each level of the Swim Right™ curriculum. For a quick review the swim levels have been listed below with the skills we are working on for this week.

Splashers (Level 1): Comfort in the water, submersion and assisted back float

Floaters (Level 2): Independent Launch, Independent Back Float and Launch, Kick Kick Kick

Kickers (Level 3): Kick Float Kick, Kick Roll Kick and Streamline Arms on Front and Back

Streamliners (Level 4): Streamline Roll to Streamline, Side Kick, 1-Big Arm Roll to Side Kick

Freestylers (Level 5): 6 count switch, Superman Catch-up stroke (freestyle), Backstroke

Gliders (Level 6): Freestyle review, Backstroke, Breaststroke Kicks

Flyers (Level 7): Freestyle & Backstroke review, Breaststroke, Butterfly Kicks

We do emphasize that for level placement or graduation requires a mastery of skills. Many skills in our program are unique and patented therefore if a child has not been exposed to them they will typically assess lower. It is also true that children who do not regularly practice skills then to lose said skills or regress some in between summers. The Lenny Krayzelburg Swim Academy does offer year round classes to anyone who would like to continue instruction in the fall. Consistent instruction weekly is the key to continued success in swimming and water safety.

If you have questions about your child’s swim level or individual progress please contact Daniel Taylor, Aquatics Director at 214-239-7141 or dtaylor@jccdallas.org
