Teddy Bear Program teaches:

  • Our youngest swimmers Level 3 – Flip To Breathe to prepare them with the ability to survive and recover in the event of a water emergency.

4 LEVELS THAT TEACHES OUR YOUNGEST SWIMMERS

WATER INTRODUCTION AND COMFORT

Teddy Bear Introduction familiarizes parents and students to the water environment. Students adjust to water in their eyes, nose, ears, while establishing comfort and confidence floating on their back, and developing muscle memory.

SWIMMING ON TUMMY AND FLOATING ON BACK

Teddy Bear Level 1 takes comfort and confidence to the next level. Students practice propelling themselves through the water with light flotation, floating on their back independently, and safe pool exits.

INDEPENDENT SWIMMING ON TUMMY AND BACK

Teddy Bear Level 2 raises the bar from comfort and confidence to independent swimming on tummy and back. Students practice propelling themselves through the water without flotation providing the skills they will need to master the more advanced flip to breathe for a safe recovery in Teddy Bear Level 3.

FLIP TO BREATHE FOR SURVIVAL AND RECOVERY

Teddy Bear Level 3 takes the skills of Level 2 and adds a flip breath for survival and recovery. Students master flipping to their back and return to swimming on their tummy as well as swimming to the wall to pull themselves out of the pool.
