SWIM LESSON INFORMATION
Starfish Swim School®
Students work toward the development of the five core swimming competencies and receive color stage awards for each achievement. The color stages are used to divide students into broad ability groups. Children progress at individual rates with the opportunity to learn the core swimming skills and progress to advanced strokes. Learning is self-paced but challenging. (Stroke School – students will refine freestyle and learn techniques for backstroke, butterfly, breaststroke and more!)
