BEGINNER FREESTYLE & BACKSTROKE
The Puffer level introduces the fundamentals of Freestyle and Backstroke to the swimmer who has developed a comfortable breathing pattern in the water. The key focus of the class is to combine the breathing techniques from the Silverfish / Goldfish level with a technically sound freestyle stroke. Proper posture and body rotation are emphasized on both the stomach and the back. Safety skills are continued through a variety of drills. Lessons have a 4 student to 1 teacher ratio and are 30 minutes in length. Graduates of the Puffer Level move up to the Eel Level.
