CLASS DESCRIPTION:

Children who have completed our Liquid Bubbles® 2 course and can independently swim the full length of a 25 yard pool with sustainable underwater arm movements and proper air exchange are ready for Liquid Bubbles® 3. We believe the best way for a child to prepare for a lifetime of swimming proficiency is to introduce CONTROLLED MOVEMENTS from the start. Based on the Liquid Lifestyles® principles of safety and stroke efficiency, this class takes a fun and disciplined approach to introduce controlled and propulsive above-water arm movements, instill proper breathing habits and promote effective balance techniques. Fundamental safety swims, increased underwater skill development and foundational drill progressions will set the stage for effective, life-long swimming enjoyment.
