ClubSport Swim School

ClubSport Swim School offers progression-based small group lesson packages from April through September. Lessons consist of four 25-minute sessions: Two weeks for two-day weekday sessions and four weeks for sessions on Saturdays. Class levels are separated by proficiency and age.

There is a maximum of four swimmers in each group session and a maximum of three in Starfish.

Swimmers receive a detailed progress report at the end of each session. We recommend that swimmers repeat each level once or twice to achieve full proficiency. At that point, the swimmer will receive a ribbon to pass to the next level.

Please check back in the spring for our new swim school schedule. For more information about ClubSport Swim School, visit the Aquatics Desk or contact Aquatics Director Amy Altenburger at (925) 942-6305.


PARENT IN WATER ASSISTING (6:1) — A parent joins their child in the water to help them feel comfortable and happy as they learn the most basic water skills, such as assisted back floats, tummy floats, submersion in the water, and glides to the wall. Both parent and child will learn important safety skills.


FUNDAMENTAL WATER SKILLS (3:1) — The child can swim independently, is comfortable in a back-float position, and has the social skills needed to work away from their parent. They will learn to maintain a comfortable head-down swim, work towards an independent back glide, and learn to streamline and kick.


STROKE DEVELOPMENT (3:1) — For the child learning to swim for the very first time, this class will help them learn to float independently in a relaxed state and will also learn the proper streamline position. The swimmer will have developed a high level of comfort in the water by the time they complete this level.


STROKE EXECUTION — A child in this class is comfortable in the water and can swim a short distance unassisted (to the instructor and back to the wall) in a relaxed state. They will learn to swim freestyle, develop good streamlining skills, and start to develop a good backstroke kick.


BACKSTROKE DEVELOPMENT — Techniques such as streamline, proper exhalation, a propulsive kick, and proper feel of the water are the focus in this level. The child will learn new skills, including side breathing and arms for the backstroke.


INTRO TO BUTTERFLY AND BACKSTROKE — Strong emphasis is placed on learning the correct arms and legs for each stroke to perfection. The child will learn elementary backstroke legs and the full elementary backstroke, using both arms and legs correctly.


BACKSTROKE AND BUTTERFLY STROKE EXECUTION (4:1) — A child entering this level has mastered a comfortable, relaxed freestyle swim and is familiar with unassisted backstroke. In this class, the swimmer is expected to master side breathing and is introduced to breathing to the non-preferred side. They will learn butterfly and backstroke progression, a beginning somersault, and a sit-down dive.

Hammerhead (Y6)

FINAL LEVEL (4:1) — A child entering this level has mastered a comfortable and relaxed freestyle swim, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly stroke, is headed towards the Swim Team, and is fine-tuning their techniques. In this class, the swimmer will be introduced to more advanced breathing in all strokes.
