Swimming strokes such as freestyle and backstroke are an important part of swimming. However, it's vital children learn personal survival skills that are able to improve safety not only at the pool but also in other waterways such as rivers, lakes and the ocean.
In swimming lessons we challenge students to participate in simulated open water conditions and then to think for themselves about how to transfer these skills to other situations.
Programs for all ages
Infants (from 6 months)
A parent supports the child in the pool, while they learn to explore and become familiar with the water, and help build confidence. Children learn to control breathing, floating, paddling and propulsion.
Children grow in confidence and become more independent in the water. Parents are gradually transitioned out of the pool and children start to participate on their own. Children start to learn swimming strokes.
School aged (5 – 12 years)
With an increase in confidence, competence and endurance, children establish a lifelong appreciation for safer activity in the water. The primary program focuses on refinement of swimming stroke techniques, safety and survival skills, and respect for the water.
Aqua Fit is a program desiged to improve stroke correction and encompasses a variety of water based safety skills. It allows the student to keep fit, improve technique and endurance but have fun at the same time!
Entry Level: Participants must have completed Dolphin/ Shark Level or equivalent.
Duration: 60 mins
