This course is for those without swimming experience or whose swimming experiences are uncomfortable.  A small group of peers and a caring, competent instructor will provide just enough support and encouragement to create positive experiences of the water.  

The emphasis in Beginner is on development of confidence and feel for the water. Adults are classified “Beginners” until they are swimming freestyle and demonstrating effective rotary breathing, can swim 25 meters without stopping and tread water for 60 seconds. Other strokes may be introduced to support learning the freestyle. Swimmers are honing their freestyle stroke as other competitive strokes are systematically and progressively introduced. Swimmers learn the complete strokes and some drills that make those strokes more powerful.  Emphasis is on solidifying competent and comfortable, relaxed breathing
