Level 6 is for ages 6+ and must have successfully completed Level 5.
This class is 45 minutes and runs for 10 weeks.
This level refines front crawl with a focus on hand entry and breathing (25m), back crawl with a focus on arm positions and body roll (25m), and introduces elementary backstroke (15m), safety on ice, and rescue of others with throwing assists. Swimmers demonstrate the front dive and their ability to tread water in deep water for 1 1/2minutes. Endurance is built through dolphin kick and a 75m swim.
Swimmers are evaluated based on performance criteria and progress to level 7 once all criteria have been successfully completed.
