JR KROC SWIM LEAGUE
Refine your skills in Kroc Swim League! Twice a week, children will be coached by experienced Kroc Center swim coaches who break down and critique students’ strokes. Kroc Swim League offers children the opportunity to take the step towards competitive swimming and to flaunt their skills by competing in an intra-squad swim meet held after each session.
Prerequisite: Participants must be able to swim a minimum of 25 yards unassisted using any competitive stroke.
Swimmers take your mark, get set, GO! In the White level, swimmers will look to perfect the freestyle stroke. Broken down into segments, children learn all the necessary fundamentals of the stroke on the path to perfection. In this stage, rotary breathing is incorporated with pull and kick coordination. Participants must be comfortable entering and exiting the water on their own and be comfortable in the water without assistance. Participants also must be able to move 3 feet through the water.
In the Blue stage, students will put their skills together to form complete swimming strokes including freestyle, backstroke, and butterfly. Students will also focus on integrated movement transitioning from basic swimming to proper breaststroke form. They will be introduced to the stroke by learning frog kick and proper scooping arm motion for breaststroke. Students will also work in the deep end of the pool learning how to dive in head first and tread water.
In the Red stage, participants will begin to become independent swimmers by learning correct body positioning and air recovery. Participants will be able to move through the water independently on their front and back, and learn the fundamentals necessary to master backstroke. Children will learn about 911 and how to use general water safety equipment. Participants must be able to fully submerge head, recover to back float for 5 seconds, and move through 3 meters of water unassisted.
