  • Level 2 - Fundamental Aquatic Skills: gives students success with fundamental skills.
  • Level 3 - Stroke Development: builds on the skills in Level 2 by providing additional guided practice.
  • Level 4 - Stroke Improvement: develops confidence in the strokes learned and to improve other aquatic skills.
  • Level 5 - Stroke Refinement: provides further coordination and refinement of strokes.
