Instructors follow a specific teaching progression beginning at the "Tadfin" level. Progressions focus on the development of Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Butterfly integrated with correct biomechanical posture and water safety. Students practice crossover aquatic skills, (which in time, your child will fully develop in preparation for the next level). Confidence, strength, and endurance along with correct stroke fundamentals is criteria for progressing through our program's flow of learning.
