It’s that time of the year again and what better way to get your child back in the pool! Your child will have the opportunity to participate in the Learn-to-swim program at the UNE pool in Biddeford. This program focuses on safe water acclimation, skill development, and water safety skills. 

 
TYPES OF LESSONS:
Parent and Child (6months-3 ½ years)
In this class parents learn how to safely work with their child in the water. This includes how to
appropriately support and hold their child, as well as how to prepare and encourage their child to participate fully and try aquatic skills. Children receive an introduction to basic skills that lay a foundation for learning to swim. Additionally, parents are introduced to several water safety topics
 
Preschool (Ages 3-5):
Preschool classes are designed to introduce basic aquatic skills and build toward independent aquatic locomotion skills. Children will explore using simultaneous and alternating arm/leg actions on the front and back to gain proficiency in preparation for performing strokes. Participants are
also introduced to and practice basic water safety topics.
 
Level 1/2 (Ages 5 and up): Introduction & Development of Fundamental Aquatic Skills
This level works on the introduction and development of basic aquatic skills that become the
foundation for future aquatic skill development. This level also marks the beginning of true
locomotion skills. Participants learn to glide/float without support, recover to a vertical position, gain confidence and the ability to explore underwater. Additionally, they develop simultaneous and alternating arm/leg actions on front and back, laying the foundation for future strokes. Water
safety topics and skills are also introduced.
 
Level 3 (Ages 6 and up): Stroke Development
This level works on expanding proficiency of previously learned skills by providing additional
guided practice. Participants will learn the basic rudimentary skills of the front crawl, back crawl, and elementary backstroke. Participants will also be introduced to the scissor and dolphin kicks, extend their duration of time treading water, survival floating, and safe head-first water entry.
 
Level 4/5 (Ages 6 and up): Stroke Improvement & Refinement
Participants improve their aquatic skills and increase their endurance by swimming strokes for greater distances and with more advance proficiency. Participants will add arm actions to
previously learned scissor, dolphin, and breaststroke kicks to perform sidestroke, butterfly, and breaststroke. Participants will continue to learn more advanced water safety skills, as well as the basics of open turns and starts.
