Swim Starters: develops water enrichment and aquatic readiness in children.

Recommended age range: infants and toddlers (6 mos.–3 yrs.)

In the two stages that make up this parent-child category, children learn to be comfortable in the water. Rather than teaching children how to survive in the water or become accomplished swimmers, Swim Starters focuses on developing swim readiness skills through fun and confidence-building experiences. Parents also learn essential skills in Swim Starters. Close supervision is the best way to prevent drowning. Parents learn how to supervise children in the water, how to prevent accidents, and how to plan for emergencies.

Swim Basics: develops personal water safety and basic swimming skills in students of all ages.

Recommended age ranges: preschool youth (3–5 yrs.), school-age youth (5–12 yrs.), teens and adults (12+ yrs.)

In these three stages, students develop a high level of comfort in the water by practicing safe water habits, engaging in underwater exploration, and learning how to swim to safety and exit if they fall into a body of water. Group activities that reinforce learning help students progress. By the end of this series of stages, students achieve basic swimming competency by learning two benchmark skills:

–  Swim, float, swim—sequencing front glide, roll, back float, roll, front glide, and exit

–  Jump, push, turn, grab

Swim Strokes: introduces and refines stroke technique in older students.

Recommended age ranges: school-age youth (5–12 yrs.), teens and adults (12+ yrs.)

In these three stages, having mastered the fundamentals, students learn additional water safety skills and build stroke technique, developing skills that prevent chronic disease, increase social-emotional and cognitive well-being, and foster a lifetime of physical activity.

Once students have progressed through the stages in all three categories, they have the opportunity to follow three different pathways:

– Competition—for students who want to swim competitively either at the Y or for a different organization

-Leadership—for students who want to become a lifeguard or otherwise use swimming skills in their professional career

-Recreation—for students who want to make swimming a part of a healthy lifestyle and a way of getting the recommended amount of physical activity per day
