Swimmers must be able to swim across the width of the pool independently. This stage develops forward movement on the front and back, integrating arm and leg action, and introduces rhythmic breathing. Skills will be practiced in deeper water.

Confidence in the Water

Thomas (Name has been changed to protect the child’s privacy.) came to the Milton Y for
private swimming lessons on Saturday mornings. He is four years old and has special needs. His dad would get in the pool with him during his lessons with Cortney Lahr.  His parents said he hated the water.

Cortney worked for two months on swimming lessons and, with dad’s help, was able to get him blowing bubbles, kicking his feet, and laying in the water on his belly. He loves the water now.
