The Kroc Swim Academy takes the water safety skills and developmental progression of traditional Red Cross swim lessons and molds them into a more streamlined, user friendly program. We now offer all levels at the same time to provide more flexibility and have removed age requirements allowing your child to progress based on skill development. The Kroc Swim Team now serves as the capstone for the academy and incorporates the skills traditionally taught in levels 4 and 5.

• Check in to your class at The Kroc front desk, and then find the Swim Lesson table in the Cove Pool. Remember to bring a towel!
• At the end of the set of lessons, your Instructor will recommend the appropriate class level for the next set of lessons. Class levels are frequently repeated to allow students to master skills and feel successful before moving on to a new level.
Aqua Tots is a true beginner’s class designed to introduce parents and children to key skills that will increase water comfort and awareness in a pool and at home. Participants will focus on water response and developmental behaviors that can occur in the water. The goal is to teach parents and children what can be expected as the children begin to understand body movement in the water. Class fee includes parent and child enrollment. Please enroll the parent participant. Average age is 6 months to 4 years.
The Beginner Level is the precursor to our level system. It is designed for the child’s first lesson away from mom and dad with the goal of becoming comfortable in the water. Average age 3–5.
Intermediate Level is a basic water introduction course for those children who are more independent. Being comfortable in the water is the main goal. Things such as blowing bubbles, submerging the head, and floating will be taught. Most skills will be done with assistance. Average age 3–5.
Level 1 teaches the basic fundamentals of swimming so that fear of the water, both deep and shallow, are overcome. It lays a foundation for skills such as floating, front and back streamline, and introducing basic arm and leg actions. Average age 4–6.
In Level 2 the child gains independence in the water. The basic concepts of swimming are introduced with Freestyle and Backstroke. Average age 4–7.
In level 3, the child begins to learn rotary breathing and stamina is increased, as well as the basics of Breaststroke and Butterfly. By this level the child is fully comfortable in deep and shallow water, moving freely by themselves. Average age 5+.
