Kroc Swim Academy (Swim Lessons) 

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.

Not sure what level to sign up for? Give us a call at 208.763.0657 to schedule your free swim assessment. Fridays 3PM or 5:30PM by appointment only.

AGES 6 MONTHS–4 YEARS

Introduction to Parent & Child 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. 

AGES 3–6 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. Required skills for next level: Blowing bubbles, front and back float, swim 2 body lengths with assistance. 

AGES 4–8 YEARS

Level 1 teaches the basic fundamentals of swimming. Fear of the water, both deep and shallow, is overcome. It lays a foundation for skills such as floating, front and back streamline, and introducing basic arm and leg actions. Required skills for next level: Floating face down, gliding on front and back, swimming from back to front. 

AGES 5–9 YEARS

In Level 2 the child gains independence in the water. The basic concepts of swimming are introduced with Freestyle and Backstroke. Required skills for next level: Comfortable swimming on front and rolling over for breathing, backstroke, elementary backstroke. 

AGES 6–10 YEARS

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 the water, moving freely by themselves, in both deep and shallow water. Required skills for next level: Swim 15 yards freestyle, 15 yards backstroke, treading water 30 seconds, dolphin kick.

Kroc Swim Team

The Kroc Swim Team serves as the capstone to our Swim Academy. As a part of the team swimmers will have the opportunity to improve their strokes, build endurance, and foster friendships. As they progress, swimmers gain swim meet experience in an introductory environment as well as an introduction to water polo.

Squid Squad is the next step after completing the learn-to-swim levels. To be successful your child should be able to swim freestyle with side breathing and backstroke as well as display a basic understanding of Breaststroke kick and Dolphin kick. They will also have the opportunity to compete in local developmental meets should they desire. Required Skills for this level: Level 3 exit skills or be able to swim 15 yards of freestyle (with side breathing) and 15 yards of backstroke, be comfortable in deep water. 

By the time your child reaches Silver Team they should be able to swim all four competitive strokes with good form as well as have a basic understanding of flip turns and racing starts. As with Squid Squad, there are opportunities to compete locally. 

The Gold group serves as an introduction to all aspects of competitive swimming including dry land training and general workout design. It is also a great cross training opportunity for those involved in our youth water polo program.
