The objective of Learn-To-Swim lessons is to teach children and young teens ages 6 – 15 years old
(6 – 10 years old for Learn-To-Swim Levels 1-3 and 10 – 15 years old for Learn-To-Swim Levels 4-6) to be safe in, on and around the water and to swim well. Water safety skills are taught in a progression through six levels. Level 1 begins with participants becoming oriented to the water and gaining skills in each category of skills. By the completion of Level 3, participants will have achieved basic water competency in a pool environment. By the end of level 6, participants will have developed the necessary skills and fitness levels to achieve success in classes and programs like swim team and Lifeguard certifications.
 
OKC Parks divides Learn-To-Swim Lessons into two levels: Learn-To-Swim 1-3 and Learn-To-Swim 4-6. The first time that students enroll in a Learn-To-Swim 4-6 course they will be required to demonstrate their ability to complete the prerequisite skills for those classes during the first class of the session.
 
Required Skills/Abilities: Students in Learn-To-Swim 4-6 Lessons will be required to complete the following skills during the first class of the session:
- Perform a jump into deep (9 feet) of water from the side of the pool. Recover to the surface of the water and maintain position in the water by treading or floating for 1 minute. Then rotating to orient to the exit point of the pool (far side) and swim approximately 20 yards of either front crawl (freestyle) or elementary backstroke.
- Push off the pool wall in a streamlined position then proceed to swim front crawl (freestyle) for 15 yards, stop and turn, then return to the starting wall by swimming elementary backstroke.
