You can expect to improve dramatically in one summer or after 8 days and be very proud of yourself! We are a swim school that is set up like swimming grades and there is only so much that each student can learn in one summer depending on their age, previous experience and fine and gross motor skills. For example, a 4 year old is not going to learn all 6 strokes in one summer and acquire pre-lifeguarding skills. They will however, develop water safety, freestyle stroke development, back floating and kicking, breathing and deep water exploration. They could jump from tadpole to goldfish in one summer if they took more than 8 days and improve rapidly. Advanced beginners may go from goldfish to level 1 in one summer or intermediate swimmers may go from level 2, 3 or 4 depending on how many lessons they took. We focus on improvement, swimmer smarter, not harder and on mastery, rather than jumping through the levels fast.
