The Beginner, or Small Fry swim program is for children who are ready to learn the very basics of swimming. It is a shallow water class. This is a class for children who enjoy the water but do not yet know how, or feel insecure about putting their body in a prone position to swim or float on their own. They might not be putting their face in the water yet. It is not a class for a child who is fearful of the water.

The Advanced beginner or Guppy swim program is for children who have some of the very basics of swimming. It is both taught in shallow and some deep water. Children at this level enjoy being in the pool and will put their face in the water. They can demonstrate basic forward momentum in some way, but haven't put all the pieces of swimming together. They can push themselves off the pool floor to begin "swimming" on their front and back.

Intermediate or Little Piranha program is for children who may be interested in moving on to the swim team. These children have the basics of swimming freestyle and basic backstroke but still need time to develop endurance, perfect their strokes, and become a better diver. The end of this group of lessons culminates in an exhibition swim during the last home swim meet of the season(during the first 4 weeks of lessons). All children at this level are welcome to be in this swim group and do not necessarily have to commit to the swim team after this level is completed.
