SALUKI SWIM SCHOOL
TThe Saluki Swim School is the swim lesson program of Saluki Swim Club. The Saluki Swim School is the entry point into Saluki Swim Club. In the Swim School we hope to take beginning swimmers and teach them the basics of swimming. When a swimmer graduates the final level of Swim School, they are ready to join the Competitve Team in the Jedi group!
During the Summer of 2009, Saluki Swim Club began using a new format for our Swim School! Our Summer Swim School was very successful! Our new design offers swimmers the opportunity to be a safe recreational swimmer, participate on a summer league team, or even progress to the Saluki Swim Club Racing Team. Our swim school now offers seven different skill levels that focus on the skills that are the building blocks for learning to swim. Our swim school begins with the Parent and Child class and is followed by the Sphinx, Pharaoh, King Tut, King Ramses, Cleopatra, and Cairo levels.
When trying to decide which class is best for your swimmer, you can use two things to make your decision. First, if you participated in the swim school this summer, sign up for the level your swimmers was working on or the next level if they completed a level. Second, if you are new to swim school, select the level which you feel matches your swimmer's current skill level. You can review the skills in each level below.
