  • Level 2: To give participants success with fundamental skills, including learning how to float without support and to recover to a vertical position.
  • Level 3: To build on the skills in Level 2 by providing additional guided practice in deeper water.
  • Level 4: To develop participants' confidence in the strokes learned in Level 3 and to improve other aquatic skills.
  • Level 5: To develop participants' confidence in the strokes learned in Level 3 and to improve other aquatic skills.
  • Level 6: To refine strokes so participants swim them with more ease, efficiency, power and smoothness and over greater distances.
