From beginners to experienced swimmers, The Kroc Center has swim lessons for every stage of your child’s swimming experience. Swimmers will move through five different levels as their skills progress.
HOW TO SIGN UP
Class levels are frequently repeated to allow students to master skills and feel successful before moving on to a new level.
AGES 6 MONTHS – 3 YEARS
Splish splash fun! A great way to spend time together, this class encourages participation from both the parent and child. Key elements of the class include water adjustment, exploration and skills through lively songs, nursery rhymes and games.
AGES 2 – 5 YEARS
Jump into fun! This class emphasizes water adjustment, exploration and skills through teaching activities, drills and games. Only the child participant is allowed in the water during class time (sorry, no parents or guardians). Children who are not potty trained must wear a swim diaper to class.
This level is designed for children who have limited or no water experience.
AGES 5 – 12 YEARS
Students in this class may be new swimmers or comfortable in the water. Students will learn to blow bubbles, put their face in the water, back float, front glide, roll from front to back and back to front, and swim freestyle with good form for short distances.
These students will learn safety floats, jumping into the water, back glides, back stroke, elementary backstroke, and will continue to improve their form for freestyle.
Students have mastered the basics of freestyle and backstroke, and are ready to learn rotary breathing. Swimmers will improve their elementary backstroke form, learn dolphin kick, and will be introduced to the deep water in the competition pool for treading water and beginning diving.
While improving their rotary breathing, backstroke, and elementary backstroke students will learn butterfly, breaststroke, and will swim longer distances. Students will learn open turns for freestyle and backstroke and learn to dive from the side of the pool.
Students can swim full lengths of the Comp Pool and will increase their stamina and speed in all strokes through swimming drills. They are ready to learn flip turns and competitive starts from the starting blocks.
Adult swim lessons are for all skill levels ages 13 & older. We also offer private and semi-private class options. For more information please contact our aquatics department at 402-905-3592.
