Aquatics - Stage 2 - Water Movement

Swim Basics for Preschool and School Age

Students learn personal water safety and achieve basic swimming competency by learning two benchmark skills: swim, float, swim—sequencing front glide, roll, back float, roll, front glide, and exit—and jump, push, turn, grab.

In Water Acclimation, Water Movement, and Water Stamina, students are taught the recommended skills for all to have around water including safe water habits, underwater exploration, and how to swim to safety and exit in the event of falling into a body of water. Activities, games, and drills, geared to reinforce learning, are utilized heavily as students progress in this skill-based approach to swimming.

Stage Descriptions:

1 / Water Acclimation Increases comfort with underwater exploration and introduces basic self-rescue skills performed with assistance.
2 / Water Movement Encourages forward movement in the water and basic self-rescue skills performed independently.
3 / Water Stamina Develops intermediate self-rescue skills performed at longer distances than in previous stages.
