The purpose of our Level 5 class is to help children refine their performance of all four swimming strokes introduced in previous levels (freestyle, elementary backstroke, backstroke, and breaststroke.) In addition, children will be introduced to two new strokes—butterfly and sidestroke. Children will also learn flip turns and how to dive from the blocks and continue swimming. If all the skills for this level are met, children will be prepared to be a part of our swim team.
