Paducah Parks Department offers swim classes

Staff report

The Paducah Parks Department will offer swimming lessons this summer beginning in June. The classes are two-week sessions held Monday through Thursday. There will be three sessions: June 16, July 7 and July 21.

Pre-kindergarten swim is for 3-4 years old and children must be completely toilet trained. Parents are encouraged to be involved during these lessons. The children will be taught how to enter and leave the pool area, blow bubbles in the water, submerge their head and face in the water and jumping in from the side of the pool. Flotation devices will be used and those who are ready can be taught these skills without the flotation devices.

Levels 1 through 3 are for children 5 years old and up. Level 1 will teach basic swimming skills such as front and back float, glide and flutter kicks. Flotation devices are not allowed in this class.

Level 2 will teach intermediate skills and begin teaching strokes. Kids will learn rhythmic breathing, object retrieval and the front crawl arm stroke.

Level 3 will develop and better swimming strokes and children must pass Level 2 before they can do Level 3. Underwater stroke, treading water and back crawl stroke will be taught.

Level 4 is advanced and children must master and pass Level 3. This level will develop swimming strokes and teach diving.

Registration: paducahky.gov/paducah/parks-registration. It can also be done over the phone or by mail. The cost is $35 per session.
