Kids in the Game and Physique Swimming are partnering to offer a swim and sports camp at Riverdale Neighborhood House! This camp will include swim instruction 5-days a week for campers and a variety of sports offerings to keep campers active and engaged with plenty of summer fun!
Learn to Swim
Swimmers will be introduced to the fundamentals of aquatics through a focus on properly mastering primary skills (floating, gliding, rolling over, front crawl, breath control). Swimmers will work towards independent front and back floats, rolling over from front to back and submersions without support. Swimmers will develop combined strokes on front and back and are introduced to deep water through jumps and dives from a sitting position, with an ultimate goal to complete 1 length of the pool independently.
Swimmers have completed the learn to swim levels and can swim fully unsupported for 1 length of the pool. In this class swimmers will develop: breathing coordination, arm & leg coordination, treading water, and changing directions underwater. Swimmers are introduced to the technical fundamentals of backstroke and freestyle with rotary breathing, the rudiments of breaststroke and butterfly, as well as starts and standing dives with an end goal of lap swimming.
