OTHER DETAILSStudents who are crawling (generally 6-8 months) through 15 months will learn survival floating, which includes rotating from facedown position to a back float followed by the ability to rest and breathe calmly until help arrives. Older children will learn a swim-float sequence, which includes 1.) swimming face down using arms and legs, 2.) rolling to a back float when needed to rest and breathe, 3.) flipping back to a swimming position to reach the wall or stairs. After accomplishing these skills in a bathing suit, children will practice their skills in summer clothing and then winter clothing since most children who find themselves in the water alone are fully clothed.
