Tadfin - Level 1  (2 1/2-5 years)
Tadfin Students are developing comfort and confidence in the aquatic classroom independent of their parent as they are introduced to the Family Swim School foundation of correct fundamental swimming and safety skills.  If your child only moves in the water while wearing extra floatation, than this is the class they would start in.

Jellyfin - Level 2 (3 1/2-6 years)

Starfin Students are swimming independently while increasing their coordination in the proper development of the four strokes in a 10-meter course. If your child moves very comfortably through the water but without any type of swimming form, than this is the class they would start in.

Swordfin - Level 4 (5-9 years)
Swordfin Students are gaining strength and endurance while further developing proper performance of the four strokes in a 15-meter course.  If your child can swim using their freestyle, backstroke & breaststroke in nice form, than this is the class they would start in.

Kingfin - Level 5 (6 1/2-12 years)
Kingfin Students are improving their efficiency with the four strokes as they fine-tune their technique; learn circle-swimming and underwater push-offs while swimming greater distances in a 15-meter course.  If your child can swim using their freestyle, backstroke & breaststroke and dolphin kick in good form for 15 meters, than this is the class they would start in.
