Zodiac Swim School provides swim programs for adults who want to learn the basics of swimming. They also have other tiers for those who have experience swimming but are looking to improve their skills.
Toronto, Ontario (http://zodiacswim.on.ca/)/ May 2014/ — Zodiac Swim School offers adult swim programs aside from its swimming programs for teenagers and toddlers. The program is designed to help adults who were unable to take swimming lessons when they were younger or for adults who want to improve their swimming skills.
The adult swim programs provided by Zodiac Swim School are divided into tiers for participants with no swimming background and for swimmers with little to more experience. Red Cross Swim Basics 1 lays the foundation for swimming and water safety. Participants are taught the basics of swimming such as comfort in the water, flotation, breathing techniques, movement, and learning how to front swim. The swimming techniques taught to beginners include back and front float, shallow water exits and entries, 10m front swim, and back and front glide with kicks. Once a participant is comfortable in the water and knows the basics, he or she can move on to a higher level.
More experienced swimmers can participate in the advanced adult swim programs offered by Zodiac Swim School. The advanced programs build on the swimming foundation that began in the beginner’s program. The program helps participants swim farther without stopping, improve the swimming techniques and movements they have learned, and increase comfort in deep water without assistance.
The Red Cross Swim Basics 2 teaches swimmers new strokes like back swim with shoulder roll, front and back crawl at 15m, sitting dive, kneeling dive, stride dive and front dive, treading water and swim a minimum of 25 metres. In Red Cross Swim Strokes 1 program, swimmers are introduced to breaststroke, elementary backstroke and sidestroke and continue developing the front crawl and back crawl. Participants must be able to swim a minimum of 25 metres of front crawl with side breathing. Red Cross Stroke Improvement will focus on stroke improvement drills, technical workouts and basic water safety.
