Just because your child can't dive-in doesn't mean they can't work on their technique to help them advance and stay safe around water. See below for a list of homework based on swim level.

Besides being great exercise and a challenging sport, swimming is a life skill. The Y offers swim lessons of all kinds for all ages—family swim, competitive swim teams, and many types of adaptive-swim programs for kids and adults with special needs. We want everybody to be safe while they enjoy the pleasures of being around and in the water.
