Swim lessons Skills Breakdown
Level 1 – Starfish
This level is for first time swimmers or students with a fear of water. Lessons focus primarily on getting students comfortable with full or partial submersion, floating with and without support, and kicks.
Level 2 – Penguin
Our Penguin level is designed to help swimmers make the transition from floating to aquatic mobility. Swimmers will learn to combine freestyle kicks and arms.
Level 3 – Sea Otter
Sea Otter level students will focus on perfecting freestyle technique with side breathing skills and begin learning backstroke.
Level 4 – Swordfish
This intermediate-skills level will improve endurance, introduce swimmers to the deep end, and teach breaststroke.
Level 5 – Dolphin
Our most advanced level helps students to perfect all strokes, further increase endurance, introduce swim team techniques, and learn the butterfly stroke. Students are encouraged to look into pre-competitive swim training or swim team for further progression.
Pre-competitive swim training
This training is similar to the level 5 dolphin but acclimates the swimmer to the group setting of a swim team. Also, the pre-competitive swim training has a stronger focus on building cardiovascular endurance and perfecting each stroke.
Youth Swim Team
The Rancho swim team prepares children for local Summer competitions. Swimmers will work on all strokes, advanced skills, and endurance to give excellent performance. The minimum requirements are to be able to swim 2 laps of every stroke, it is strongly recommended that children are strong swimmers before joining.
