Youth lessons. The objectives of Level 4 are to develop participants' confidence in the strokes learned thus far and to improve other aquatic skills. In level 4, participants improve their skills and increase their endurance by swimming familiar strokes (front crawl, elementary backstroke) for greater distances. Participants add the arms to the scissors kick for the sidestroke. Participants also start to learn the back crawl, breaststroke, and butterfly, and the basics of turning at a wall.
