Learning to Swim ... The Learn-to-Swim classes are designed to improve each child’s swimming skills at his or her own pace. Swimming requires more advanced motor coordination, which involves considerable practice to develop. It is quite common for a student to stay at one skill level for more than one session due to individual development. For a more accurate placement of your child in our swim lesson program, please refer to the detailed skills sheet for each level, available at the Department Office or online at: recreation.queensbury.net 2 SUMMER 2018 PROGRAM GUIDE
