Preschool Aquatics

PSA I & PSA II

(Ages 4-6)

In our Preschool Aquatics class there is much more learning and a lot less playing. As children build comfortability they become ready to take on the next challenges of swimming short distances on their front and back all while recognizing the importance of safety. They are introduced early to front crawl and back crawl techniques to raise stroke awareness as they continue to explore their body movements in propelling themselves forward. Deep-water exploration is important so that they can better understand that it’s never about sinking to the bottom, but remaining at the surface. We believe that practice and repetition is key in building strong skills, not just blowing bubbles or singing songs.

PSA I
