Program Design

Swim and Gym is an after-school program that takes place during each fall and spring semester at Iowa State University. The program includes the following: Team sports, gymnastics, fitness activities, dance, cooperative games, tag games, etc. Children are often divided into an older and younger group. Older children focus on more complicated concepts involved in the physical activities listed above while the younger children focus on the fundamental basics of physical activity. Swimming lessons include instruction for swimming strokes, diving, water safety, etc. Young children spend time becoming comfortable in the water before pursuing swimming strokes and diving skills. The program is led by undergraduates pursuing a degree in physical education.
