The swimmer is able to float and balance in the horizontal/supine position in order to learn proper locomotion and propulsion. They learn to manipulate and utilize specific muscle groups through the abdominal wall to gain strength and better rotation around the spine, preparing them for proper arm extension through their stroke. Students also begin to learn the kick for freestyle/backstroke and elementary backstroke/breaststroke. The student/teacher ratio is 4 to 1.

Prerequisite: Students have already acquired skills with SwimJim through SwimTots or SwimKids. If they are joining from another swimming program they must have proper front and back floats

Skills Attained:
* Streamline for efficiency in front and back floatation
* Gain core body strength
* Begin arm strokes and proper kicking technique
