                           All coaches and assistant coaches must be fingerprinted (at the City of Pleasanton’s expense) as a part of state legislation, which requires all vol-

                           Special Requests
                           Ask for one and only one request. Requesting a coach or coach requesting players is not allowed unless a head coach is requesting the
                           assistant coach’s child. City staff will make every attempt to honor requests that are appropriate, but there are no guarantees.

                Level 1—Beginners
                The objective of this level is to help the students feel comfortable
                in the water and to begin to learn the steps needed to swim.
                Level 2—Beginners
                Students continue to float on their front and back, begin to explore
                forward movement, and learn the foundations of additional strokes.
                Level 3—Beginners
                Students build on skills learned previously and are introduced to
                skills and strokes, such as elementary backstroke, that will be
                needed to pass the more advanced courses.
                Level 4—Stroke Improvement
                Students develop confidence in the strokes that they have learned,
                improve other aquatic skills, such as diving, turns and feet-first
                surface dives, and learn new strokes (breaststroke, back crawl,
                sidestroke, and butterfly).
