Child 6 to 12
Star 4 is for children 6-12 years old who have completed Star 3 or who show an equivalent skill level. In this level we will help your child focus on the sidestroke, and we will continue to introduce lifesaving skills. We will also continue to work on technique and endurance of strokes increasing their swimming distance to 350 metres.
Your child will also continue to explore other interests in the pool by selecting more optional skills to learn. They may choose to try something new or focus in on one area — the choice is theirs! Options include competitive swimming, lifesaving, synchronized swimming, aquatic fitness, or water polo.
Star 4 is taught in small groups by a certified YMCA Swim Instructor who will work with your child to learn each new skill.
To learn more or register for continuous swim lessons, please contact your membership services team.
