Woman Teaching Child to Swim
Level 2: Fundamentals of Swimming
OBJECTIVE: To give students success with fundamental aquatic skills to remain safe.
Prerequisites include: ability to fully and comfortably submerge face, float on back with minimal assistance, swim a short distance independently, and demonstrate safe water entries and exits. 
Skills introduced include: Front & back glides, “bobbing”/submerging head, rolling over from front to back for safety, swimming using front crawl and elementary backstroke action. Some classes may use floatation for support.  Students will explore the deep end of the pool.  In order to pass out of this level, students MUST be comfortable in deep water and MUST pass the SoPo SHALLOW WATER SWIM TEST.  This is defined as the ability to enter the shallow water, dunk under, stay afloat to swim (in any capacity) half the length of the pool (roughly 12.5 meters) to end with a 30 sec tread or float in shallow water that is above their head.
