Available Classes

Babies

Water familarisation classes are available Monday – Saturday mornings. These lessons require a parent or guardian to be in the water with their little swimmer under the direct instruction and supervision of a teacher. They commence when swimmers are roughly 6 months of age. Numbers are capped at 10 swimmers per lesson.

Lesson Duration: 30 minutes

Transition

Transition classes are available Monday – Friday mornings. These lessons are ‘independent lessons’ commencing when swimmers are roughly 3 years of age, at a time when the parent and teacher both feel as if the child is ready to transition into independent lessons. Independent lessons are lessons where swimmers are in the water with a teacher only. During the transition stage parents may be required in the water with their swimmer for half the lesson to help reassure and settle their swimmer into being in the water without a parent. Where possible, numbers are capped at 4 swimmers per lesson.

Lesson Duration: 30 minutes

Pre-School Aged

Pre school aged classes are available Monday – Saturday mornings. These lessons commence when swimmers are roughly 3 years of age. These classes are not run according to age but rather based on a child’s swimming ability. Where possible, numbers are capped at 4 swimmers per lesson.

Lesson Duration: 30 minutes

School Aged

School aged classes are available Monday – Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings. These lessons commence when swimmers start attending school. During term 4 we endeavor to transition those morning swimmers starting school the following year into afternoon classes so as to help reduce the stress of a changed routine on the child. These classes are not run according to age but rather based on a child’s swimming ability. Where possible, numbers are capped at 6 swimmers per lesson (ability dependent).

Lesson Duration: 30 minutes

Junior Squad

Junior squad is designed for those swimmers who require to be pushed a little beyond the half hour lesson format. These swimmers are working towards endurance and technical correction of the four competitive strokes and are required to be able to complete a set distance before moving into this level. Junior squad swimmers are also introduced to starts, turns and teamwork (relays) where they build a sense of camaraderie amongst their squad group. Many of our junior squad swimmers (and some of our learn-to-swim swimmers) are members of the New Street Sharks, the competitive swimming club based at the VFSS. Squad sessions run Monday – Thursday evenings.

Lesson Duration: 1 hour

Intermediate/Senior Squad

Intermediate/Senior squad is for the swimmer who is able to swim all four competitive strokes correctly. Technique and endurance is still a main focus for these swimmers as they begin to build speed and power in their strokes. Our intermediate/senior squad trains with the junior squad where swimmers are given the opportunity to mentor our junior swimmers. This is great in the building of self-esteem, friendships and camaraderie within our swim school and makes for a happy and enjoyable environment to swim in. Squad sessions run Monday – Thursday evenings and Tuesday and Thursday early mornings.

Lesson Duration: 1 hour (morning sessions are slightly longer)
