Lifesaving Society’s Pre–School Program

Maximum 4 participants

Parent and Tot 1 (3–12 months)
Parent and Tot 2 (12–24 months)
Parent and Tot 3 (22–36 months)This exciting program structures in-water interaction between parent and child to stress the importance of play in developing water-positive attitudes and skills. Activities are planned based on the child’s maturity so parents register in the level appropriate for their child’s age.

Preschool A

(3–5 yrs) 1:3
We’ll help these little swimmers jump into the water, and learn to float, glide and kick with assistance. They’ll learn the importance of staying “within arms reach” and become comfortable putting their faces in and blowing bubbles.

Preschool B

(3–5 yrs) 1:3
These little swimmers will jump in on their own and learn to float, glide and kick with an aid. They’ll learn to put on a lifejacket (Personal Floatation Device) and learn to move safely through the water on their front and back.

Preschool C

(3–5 yrs) 1:3
These little swimmers will jump into chest-deep water, learn to float, glide and kick on their own and retrieve an object from the bottom. They’ll gain exposure to deep water and learn the basics of rhythmic breathing.

Preschool D

(3–5 yrs) 1:5
These kids are becoming quite the swimmers! They’ll jump into deep water, kick on their front and back, tread water and learn basic front and back crawl. They’ll learn the importance of swimming with a buddy and wearing a PFD/lifejacket.

Preschool E

(3–5 yrs) 1:5
These advanced preschoolers will learn how to react if they fall unexpectedly into deep water. They’ll develop breath control, master short swims using front and back crawl, and begin developing whip kick.

Swimmer Levels

Maximum 4 participants

Our Swimmer program ensures that children learn how to swim before they get in too deep. Swimmer progressions accommodate 6 to 12-year-olds including absolute beginners as well as swimmers who want to build on the basics. We stress plenty of in-water practice to develop solid swimming strokes and skills. Water Smart® education is incorporated into all levels.

Swimmer 1

1:5
These beginners will become comfortable opening their eyes and exhaling underwater. They will be introduced to floating, gliding and kicking and jumping into the water. This level is geared to those who are over 5 and have not learned to submerge underwater and have little or no swimming experience.

Swimmer 2

1:5
Participants will jump into deep water and learn to support themselves with an aid. Learn the foundation of an effective whip kick. They will build confidence in both deep and shallow water, and develop front and back crawl over short distances.

Swimmer 3

1:6
These swimmers will dive, jump and roll into the water and develop water-smart attitudes. They will improve their front and back crawl, tread water add propulsion to their whip kick, swim underwater and continue to build endurance with swims of up to 50 meters.

Swimmer 4

1:6
These swimmers will refine both entry and surface dives. They will learn eggbeater kick, sculling and breaststroke while continuing to improve their front and back crawl and work towards a 100-meter endurance swim.

Swimmer 5

1:6
These swimmers will master shallow dives, eggbeater and foot-first sculling. Surface dives will take them down to underwater swims while sprints and interval training will improve both the efficiency and endurance of their breaststroke, front and back crawls.

Swimmer 6

1:6
These swimmers will perfect their swimming strokes while building up to a 300-meter endurance swim. They will perfect a variety of movement and underwater skills while continuing to build fitness and efficiency through sprints and interval swim training.
