Las Vegas Swim Academy has designed a curriculum and achievement levels that are developmentally appropriate.  We do not believe that your child should be taught a skill that we later will be required to undo in order for them to swim properly.  These skills build upon each other until your child is able to competently swim all four of the competitive swimming strokes plus the elementary backstroke.  To achieve each of the following levels, your child should be able complete the following main skill for each level as well as the other skills that make up each level.
