Uswim1 - Abington Club Spring Swimester 2017
Mon, Apr 3, 2017, 4:15 PM
The philosophy of the USwim lessons program is to provide quality instruction for a necessary life skill. We attempt to nuture confidence and dissipate fear for the non-swimmer in an aquatic setting. Our main focus is to make the non-swimmer safe while eliciting positive emotions surrounding the water. Results will be our first priority. Instructors will consist of professional, graduate, and undergraduate personnel with swimming and/or lifeguarding experience. Our swimmer to instructor ratio is an ideal 5/1. Classes will run approximately 45-60 minutes, depending on how much progress is made each day. Parents are not involved in the lesson (you get to watch from the sidelines) and no water wings will be used.
Beginner –Any child 3-5 years old who cannot swim across the pool on their back is considered a beginner. Beginners will work on floating and self-rescue techniques while gaining confidence around the water. All children at the beginner level must be potty trained to participate! No water diapers.
Goal: To jump in, surface on the back, and swim the width of the pool without assistance.
Advanced Beginner – Advanced beginners will work on freestyle skills with proper rhythmic breathing.
Goal: To swim freestyle with proper breathing the width of the pool.
Intermediate – The Intermediate level is designed to refine freestyle stroke efficiency and endurance to swim 25 yards (the length of the pool). The backstroke and diving are also elements of this level.
Goal: To swim 25 yards both of freestyle and backstroke using proper technique.
Not sure which level to register your child? Make your best guess. All students will receive a brief evaluation on the first day of lessons and necessary adjustments will be made.
Lessons run Monday through Thursday for approximately 45-60 minutes depending on the student-teacher ratio and progress of each class. All skill levels are offered during each session and children will be divided by ability on the first day of class. Students will be in a group of no more than 5 swimmers per instructor. All instructors are USwim certified in a technique that differentiates instruction for each child within the group.
