Swish, Swish, Little Fish

March 24, 2012

Zoe and Cole have been taking swim lessons at Charlotte Aquatics since the Fall, and I finally got around to taking some pictures during their most recent round of lessons.

Cole is currently in Level 2A and can do the following: retrieve submerged objects with his eyes open, bob 5 times, front float with face in the water for 3 seconds, front glide for 1 body length, back float independently for 3 seconds, turn over from front to back and back to front, demonstrate treading water, and perform a seated dive and then return to the wall unassisted. They also teach basic jump safety and pool safety.
