The A-Wave curriculum provides your child with the skills needed to survive the water and begin building the foundation for a life-long love of swimming. Swimmers follow an itinerary of progress through 3 levels of development.
Water Exploration: Teaching focuses on safety skills, supported front and back floating, supported kicking on front and back, beginner arm movements and full face submersion.
Primary Skills: Teaching introduces unsupported floating with kicks, rhythmic breathing, basic freestyle stroke, backstroke orientation, and holding her breath underwater.
Stroke Readiness: Teaching will improve your child’s front stroke and backstroke, front and back glide, water treading skills, introduce deep water work, and more.
Returning swimmers will be given a level placement at the conclusion of each session that they can use 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.
Portions of this level may be taught in the lap pool. Our instructors want your child to have a successful and enjoyable swim experience, and will work to ensure that they are fully ready to progress from one level to the next. It is important to note that all children will learn at their own pace. It is common for students to require multiple session in any given A-Wave level before advancing. Please consider this when registering for multiple class sessions at one time. There are a variety of options for days and times. Please simply choose a convenient lesson time for you and your child when registering.
