The objective of
Level 2 is to give students success with fundamental skills.
This level marks the beginning of true swimming skills. Students
explore alternating arm and leg actions on the front and back
which lays the foundation for future strokes. They also work
on holding their breath, submerging their whole body, floating
independently, beginning stroke technique and independent swimming.
At Starfish Swim School we have split Red Cross Level 2 into
two groups; Swim Fish and Sea Turtles. Swim Fish are just beginning
in Level 2 and Sea Turtles are working towards entering Level
3. During the early Levels this gives the students a sense
of accomplishment as they see themselves progressing to another
are tested during their first lesson and placed in the appropriate
Level. At the completion of each "Starfish Level"
the student receives a Certificate of Achievement.
