Our skill development swim class focuses on honing the skills needed to become safer in the water. Learning the basics and performing them well is important to a strong and confident swimmer. Having gained confidence in the fundamental water skills, students are now ready to add arms and refine kicks. The focus is on increasing distance by getting several breaths of air and floating calmly on their back while swimming to a safe destination.
