City Pools

In order to meet the needs of numerous aquatic groups the Kingman Parks and Recreation Department takes this into consideration and offers various programs to meet the needs of all ages and types of swimming abilities. If you are interested in learning how to swim, participate in lap swim, free swim, water aerobics, Master swim, or just sitting in the pool, it is offered at one of our pool locations. Centennial pool is a deep water 50 meter pool offering a 140’ waterslide, concessions, picnic tables, and shade area. It is ideal for strong swimmers. Grandview pool is a smaller neighborhood pool with a baby pool that has a newly added wheel chair ramp, grass area, and picnic tables. Grandview (753-8155) pool will open to the public on Saturday, May 31, 2014 & Centennial (757-7910) pool will open Sunday, June 1, 2014. Both pool will close to the public on August 17, 2014.

Swimming Lesson Description & Requirements

The Red Cross program is designed to work with the child at their age & skill level. As a child completes a skill it will be checked off by the instructor. Below are the descriptions for each age group. Please remember that children vary in their swimming skills just like they do in academics and sports. The key to learning water safety and how to swim is continuous practice over time for most children.


Parent & Child (6 months-36 months)

Level 1 introduces basic skills to parents and children. Parents are taught to safely work with their child in the water, including how to appropriately support and hold their child in the water and how to prepare and encourage their child to participate fully and try the skills. Children are introduced to basic skills that lay a foundation to help them learn to swim. Several water safety topics also are introduced that are directed to parents.

Level 2 builds on the skills introduced in Level 1. Participants improve on these skills and learn more advanced skills in Level 2.


Preschool (3-5 yrs.)

Level 1, instructors teach the most elementary aquatic skills, which children continue to build on as they progress through the Preschool Aquatics and Learn-to-Swim levels. At this first level, children start developing good attitudes and safe practices around the water.


Level 2, the objectives of this level are to build on the basic aquatic skills learned in Level 1 and to give children further success with fundamental aquatic skills performed to a slightly more advanced degree than at Level 1. Most skills in this level are performed with assistance. This level marks the beginning of independent aquatic locomotion skills. Children continue to explore using simultaneous and alternating arm and leg actions on the front and back to gain more proficiency for future strokes. Level 2 also adds to the self-help and basic rescue skills introduced in Level 1.

 

Level 3 is to build on the skills learned in Levels 1 and 2 by providing additional guided practice of basic aquatic skills at slightly more proficient performance levels and greater distances and times. Skills in this level are performed independently. Instructors teach children to improve coordination of combined simultaneous arm and leg actions and alternating arm and leg actions. As in all levels, instructors present additional safety skills and improve comprehension of previous knowledge.


Learn to Swim

Learn-to-Swim Level 1—Introduction to Water Skills

The objectives of Level 1 are to learn basic personal water safety information and skills, to help participants feel comfortable in the water and to enjoy the water safely. In Level 1, instructors teach elementary aquatic skills. At this level, participants start developing positive attitudes, good swimming habits and safe practices in and around the water.

Learn-to-Swim Level 2—Fundamental Aquatic Skills

The objective of Learn-to-Swim Level 2 is to give participants success with fundamental skills. Participants learn to float without support and to recover to a vertical position. This level marks the beginning of true locomotion skills. Participants further develop simultaneous and alternating arm and leg actions on the front and back that lay the foundation for future strokes. As in all levels, instructors present additional safety skills and improve comprehension of previous knowledge.

Learn-to-Swim Level 3—Stroke Development

The objective of Learn-to-Swim Level 3 is to build on previously learned skills by providing additional guided practice. Instructors teach participants to survival float, swim the front crawl and elementary backstroke. Participants will be introduced to the scissors and dolphin kicks and build on the fundamentals of treading water. Participants should also learn rules for headfirst entries and begin to learn to enter the water headfirst from a seated position at poolside (if the water is 9 feet deep or deeper). As in all levels, instructors present additional safety skills and messages.

Learn-to-Swim Level 4—Stroke Improvement Outline

The objectives of Level 4 are to develop participants’ confidence in the strokes learned thus far and to improve other aquatic skills. In level 4 participants improve their skills and increase their endurance by swimming familiar strokes (front crawl, elementary backstroke) for greater distances. Participants add the arms to the scissors kick for the sidestroke. Participants also start to learn the back crawl, breaststroke and butterfly and the basics of turning at a wall.

Learn-to-Swim Level 5—Stroke Refinement

The objectives of this level are coordination and refinement of strokes. Participants refine their performance of all the strokes (front crawl, back crawl, butterfly, breaststroke, elementary backstroke and sidestroke) and increase their distances. Flip turns on the front and back are also introduced.

Learn-to-Swim Level 6—Swimming and Skill Proficiency

The objectives of this level are to refine strokes so participants swim them with more ease, efficiency, power and smoothness and over greater distances. Level 6 also introduces other aquatic activities and offers three options—Personal Water Safety, Fundamentals of Diving and Fitness Swimmer. These options focus on preparing participants for more advanced courses, such as the Water Safety Instructor course, or other aquatic activities, such as competitive swimming or diving. Instructor will customize this level to meet the objectives of the participants. Because of the variety this level offers, participants can repeat it to focus on different goals each time.

Learn-to-Swim Level 6—Fundamentals of Diving

Beginning with diving skills and information, instructors will follow the order that skills are presented in this outline. If water depth is not at least 9 feet, instructors are unable to teach headfirst entries from poolside; if water depth is not at least 11½ feet (or deeper if state or local regulations require), instructors are unable to teach diving from a diving board.
