Summer Swim Level V - Stroke Refinement
Summer Swim Lessons-2021/Summer Swim-Session C -
Summer Swim 2021
Objectives of this level: Coordination and refinement of strokes. Participants refine their performance of all the strokes (front crawl, back crawl, butterfly, breaststroke, elementary backstroke and side stroke) and increase their distances. Flip turns on the front and back are also introduced.
Exit Skills Assessment: When participants complete Learn-to-Swim Level 5, they are starting to demonstrate effectiveness and efficiency in all strokes. They are starting to work on endurance through longer swims that require using open and flip turns. They can enter the water using the shallow-angle dive and can then continue swimming. There are two parts to the exit skills assessment:
- Perform a shallow dive into deep water, swim front crawl 50 yards, change direction and position of travel as necessary and swim elementary backstroke for 50 yards.
Swim breaststroke for 25 yards, change direction and position of travel as necessary and swim back crawl for 25 yards.
