BREATHING FOR SURVIVAL & STROKES: The Silverfish/Goldfish level is one level with 2 progressive stages, Silverfish to Goldfish. The level is designed for children who have a solid comfort level in the water, can kick properly and float independently. The focus of the level is breathing technique development. The techniques learned will be used for both survival and recreational swimming. These breathing techniques will later translate into the proper breathing structure for swimming formal strokes. Water safety and survival techniques are emphasized through a variety of drills. Classes are 30 minutes in length and the student to teacher ratio of the class is 4:1.
