For each level of Preschool Aquatics, our instructors follow a plan to introduce new swimming and water safety skills that are developmentally appropriate for young children.  Each class is loaded with enjoyable, engaging and challenging activities that motivate children to want to perform and learn to swim! It’s common for children to participate in several sessions before they are able to successfully demonstrate all the skills. That’s okay!

In Preschool Level 1, participants learn basic swimming & water safety skills. Some milestones in PSL1 include:

  • Entering and exiting the water independently
  • Submerging mouth and blowing bubbles
  • Gliding on front for at least 2 body lengths with assistance

AquaCub swimming lessons include a variety of activities including direct and indirect teaching techniques.  Each 30-minute lesson can be observed to include the following components:

  • Welcome & Water Safety topic
  • Water Warm-up
  • Review Skills- taught through games and drills
  • New Skills- taught through games and drills
  • Games & Drills- to reinforce learned skills
  • Wrap-up and Water Exit

Please Note: Our swim lesson program progresses participants through the learning process of swimming.  Participants will start at their entry level and after successfully completing a skill checklist can progress to the next level.  Each participant learns at their own rate and repeating a level is normal for the learning process of swimming.  Instructors can provide a variety of accommodations to suit a variety of skills and abilities.  Please contact Jaclyn Pryor at (520) 621-0473 or jaclynpryor@email.arizona.edu to request disability-related accommodations or with questions about accessibility.
