GUPPY: Children continue to practice and build upon basic skills. Paddle stroke becomes freestyle with rotary breathing and they are introduced to new strokes. Children swim the length of the pool without assistance by the end of this level.

MINNOW: Children no longer use a bubble during swim lessons. This class is the beginning of the children swimming in a lane instead of a small portion of the pool. Concentration is on the front crawl with coordinated freestyle and rotary breathing. The instructors will introduce breaststroke and symmetrical arms are introduced.

FISH: This class continues the stroke development of freestyle, back crawl and breaststroke. The children begin to learn the butterfly and flip turns with an emphasis on stroke refinement and building up endurance.
