This program is designed to orient children and parents to the aquatic environment and lay a foundation that will assist with swimming development. It is not intended to teach children to swim or survive in the water on their own, but to provide parents with useful information and techniques to orient their children to the water environment. Parents are REQUIRED to participate in this level.
