The OSA curriculum is split into 5 levels. These levels range from Pre-Beginner to Advanced. All swimming classes are up to 40-minutes in length. Here is a brief description of the various levels of our curriculum:
Pre-Beginner- The Pre-beginner level is primarily for students ages 3-6 years old. This level is great for young children to become acclimated to the water as well as learning basic techniques of the back float/elementary movements.
Beginner- The Beginner level is for ages 6 years and up. This level focuses on the basic elements of swimming, starting with the simple back float and moving up to the freestyle stroke/backstroke movements.
Advanced Beginner- The Advanced Beginner level is for those who are capable of doing all of the Beginner curriculum requirements. Students will learn fine tune their freestyle/backstroke and move on to items such as the breast stroke and how to effectively tread water.
Intermediate- The Intermediate level is for swimmers who have perfected the simple strokes such as the freestyle/back stroke. Perfecting the breast stroke and Introduction to the Butterfly stroke will be the focal point of this level.
Advanced- Students will be working on endurance during their class sessions in the advanced level. Students will also focus on the side stroke, butterfly and the stroke and turn (in a pool only) techniques.
Snorkeling- All snorkeling sessions will take place at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve. Learn how to effectively use your mask, snorkel and fins while learning basic snorkeling techniques in the Ocean. Snorkeling sessions last approximately one hour.

The OSA will go to YOU! We can meet you at your private pool, high-rise pool or your favorite public pool/beach! The OSA would like to make your swimming experience as convenient as possible. So, if you don't have your own pool or if you live in an area that does not have beach access, utilize the City and County of Honolulu's public pools.
