Ages 3-4.99 years old. Before entering this class, children must be able to submerge their face, nose and head while blowing bubbles and float on their front and back for 5 seconds unassisted.  This level will help the child be more comfortable in the water and gain independence with new water skills.  They will learn front and back glides, arm/leg action for treading water and combined arm and leg action on their front and back.  Students must be comfortable in water depth above their head.
