Evolutionary Aquatics’ INTRO TO MASTERS SWIMMING via Adult Learn to Swim (ALTS) and INTERMEDIATE MASTERS SWIMMING (IMS) programs are dream makers. 

 

LEVEL 1 (ATLS): INTRODUCTION TO WATER SKILLS:

Description: This is where the dream begins for swimmers with no swim experience, or with past water trauma. Working with in-water coaches and in small groups, you'll learn to increase your comfort in and under the water. This allows for aquatic relaxation and sets the best foundation for your swim journey. 

 

Sample of acquired skill set:

  • Submerge completely and comfortably underwater

  • Breathe out underwater and resurface to breathe in

  • Float and recover unsupported on the front and back

  • Glide and recover unsupported on the front and back.

 

LEVEL 2 (ALTS): FUNDAMENTAL AQUATIC SKILLS 

Description: This level is for those who successfully complete Level 1. New EA swimmers may place in the level after a short swim assessment. 

 

Working in small groups with in-water coaches, you'll learn to work with the water and move the body forward in an efficient manner. 

 

Sample of acquired skill set:

  • Kick freestyle and backstroke from the glide position

  • Use streamline positioning to stay on top of the water

  • Coordinate arm and hip movement to propel forward in the water.

 

 

LEVEL 3 (IMS): STROKE DEVELOPMENT 

Description: This level is for those who successfully complete Level 2. New EA swimmers may place in the level after a short swim assessment. 

 

This group practice builds your endurance with short drill sets led by on-deck coaches. You will receive written workouts and are required to practice in the pool at least 2 times a week. 

 

Sample of acquired skill set:

 

  • Enter deep water safely and comfortably

  • Learn the 4 competition strokes

  • Tread water

  • Read and execute written workouts with guidance from coaches on the deck.

 

Once a swimmer has mastered the skills in Level 3 (IMS), they are welcome to participate in our advanced masters swimming programs: Stroke Improvement and Refinement (SIR), and/or Open Water Swimming (OWS)

 

We will take you as far as your dreams will allow.
