The B-Wave curriculum develops and hones your child’s swimming techniques and provides the foundation needed for competitive swimming or recreational swimming for fitness. A-Wave (or its equivalent) is a prerequisite for this program. B-Wave swimmers follow an itinerary of progress through 3 levels of development.
Stroke Development: Teaching reinforces the development of solid foundation strokes and introduces the breaststroke. Instructors will also focus on intermediate survival skills and water safety.
Stroke Refinement: Teaching will review the backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle, and move on to the butterfly stroke and practice surface dives. Advanced water survival skills and water safety will also be covered.
Stroke Proficiency: Teaching covers flip turns and racing starts from the blocks. The main objective of this level is endurance training and preparing your child for swim team, if that is their goal. Our instructors will carefully evaluate your child’s progress throughout the B-Wave curriculum to ensure that they enjoy their swim experience and are fully ready to progress from one level to the next.
Returning swimmers will be given a level placement at the conclusion of each session that can be used for future registrations. Swimmers new to our lesson program are asked to attend placement evaluations prior to the first class. These evaluations take place Saturday mornings or Mon-Wed evenings prior to new sessions beginning.
Your child will be working on refining technical skills. It is important to note that each student will progress at their own pace and it is common for a swimmer to repeat multiple sessions in the B-Wave curriculum before advancing. Please consider this when registering for multiple classes. There are a variety of options for days and times. Please simply choose a convenient lesson time for you and your child when registering.
