Sink or Swim School Programs

What We Teach

Our swimming programs focus on drowning prevention. All students will learn survival swimming skills along with swimming skills. Breath Control is priority #1 before any other skills. All students will learn how to rest and float on their back. Students over 15 months will also learn swim-float-swim. 


A sequence would be:

  1. Proper breath control as the student goes under water
  2. Kicks to a swim
  3. Rotation to a float
  4. Breath Control on a float (improper BC will result in submersion) 
  5. Flip-over back to a swim
  6. Continue to swim and repeat sequence to the side of a pool for safe exit or rest, and hold a float until help arrives. 


We have students perform all of these skills fully clothed and in winter gear, along with resting on their back for a 2 minute rest-and-float. 2 minutes is all it takes for a parent to change a load of laundry or a child not properly trained to drown and not survive the fall into the water.
