The Racing Koi class is the first level of our stroke school program. Students extend the swim distance to laps of the entire length of the pool (75 feet). Freestyle endurance is built as students learn to maintain their stroke technique as they tire.
The backstroke is taught from start to finish in this level. In addition to stroke technique, freestyle and backstroke starts and turns and speed techniques are introduced.
Prerequisite: Swimming freestyle with bilateral breathing and bent arm recovery 30 feet & elementary backstroke 10 feet
Final Goal: Several laps of rhythmic breathing freestyle with refined technique, mastery of backstroke including flutter kick, body roll, and timing
