A Clown Fish is a swimmer who is typically between the ages of 4-5 years old. At this level they are completely comfortable being in the water without being held. Typically a Clown Fish should have either experience in a class setting, previous exposure to the water, or high communication skills. As a new clownfish they should have all the core swimming and social skills taught at the seahorse level. This level focuses not only on water safety skills but also the beginning stages of swimming strokes. By the time the swimmer graduates as a seahorse they will be able to show basic forward movement with their arms and kicks, show proper body position in the water while also integrating survival swimming skills. A Clown Fish should have more developed motor skills and coordination. At this level a seahorse will also learn about communication in a class and with adults and friends.
