When is it time to stop swim lessons?
There are 3 milestones in Keystone Swim School that every parent should consider before stopping swim lessons:

Safety – The minimum skills for safe swimming occur after the completion of the Intermediate Swimmers class. At this level, students can swim a safe distance and take a few rhythmic breaths independently. Prior to this level, the student is not able to swim far enough to cough or redirect their navigation as necessary.

Stroke Acquisition – Beyond the minimal standard to keep them safe, your child can learn new strokes, breathing techniques, swimming skills, and survival techniques. These can all be learned in our Advanced Intermediate classes and above.

Expert Swimming – To be considered an expert swimmer, your child must be able to consecutively swim two laps of each competitive swim stroke. This must be done with the proper techniques and without stopping.
