  • Comfortably kick with face in water that is over the head for at least 5-10 seconds
  • Float on back independently or with minimal assistance
  • Go from swimming on stomach to rolling to back and floating to get a breath
  • Independently jump into the pool and comfortably swim 5-10 feet to exit the pool

  • Swim Bag: Bring your child’s swimsuit, change of clothes, a towel and goggles (optional).
  • Instruction: Your child’s swim instructor is thoroughly trained in the proven Aqua-Tots swim curriculum, and they will lead your child through Level 5 swim lessons to prepare them for Level 6.
