Available Classes

Babies

Age: 6 months – 3 years

Water familiarisation classes are available Monday to Saturday mornings.

This half hour lesson is jam packed with activities!  Our instructors focus on encouraging water confidence and developing your child’s  awareness of what movements their bodies are capable of,  while they’re in the water.  We encourage kicking, blowing bubbles and arm actions  relevant to the progression of becoming independent little swimmers.  The use of Nursery Rhymes, Toys and Flotation Aids are used to engage the children while learning these fundamental water skills.

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.  Babies can commence these lessons when they are around 6 months of age.

Numbers are capped at 10 swimmers per lesson.

Lesson Duration: 30 minutes

Transition

Age: 3 years – 5 years

Transition classes are available Monday to Friday mornings.

These lessons focus on developing basic stroke technique with the aim of progressing to independent swimming.

These lessons are ‘independent lessons’ commencing when swimmers are 3 years of age, or at a time when the parent and teacher feel the child is ready to transition into independent lessons.

Transition classes are lessons where swimmers are with the teacher only.  During the transition stage parents may be required in the water with their child for half the lesson to help reassure and settle them, with the view to their child participating independently.

Lesson Duration: 30 minutes

Pre-School Aged

Age: 3 years – 5 years

Pre-school aged classes are available Monday to Saturday mornings.

These lessons commence when swimmers are 3 years of age and older.

These children are proficient with basic stroke technique and are now ready to be extended technically with a continued focus on refining and adjusting their swimming skills.

During term 4 we endeavor to transition swimmers who are commencing primary school the following year into our afternoon classes.  In some instances this may aid in reducing anxiety levels when the routine of starting school for the first time commences.

Where possible, numbers are capped at 4 swimmers per lesson.

Lesson Duration: 30 minutes

School Aged

School aged classes are available Monday to Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings.

These lessons are for school aged swimmers.

These classes are not run according to age but rather are 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 are ready to be challenged beyond the half hour lesson format.  These swimmers are working towards endurance and technical correction for all four competitive strokes.   Junior squad swimmers are also introduced to starts, turns and teamwork (relays) where they build a sense of camaraderie among their squad group.

Squad sessions run Monday to 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 the main focus for these swimmers with particular attention given to building speed and power.  Our intermediate/senior squad members are given the opportunity to train and mentor our junior squad swimmers. This is a wonderful program which assists in building self-esteem, it nurtures friendships and helps to foster camaraderie within our Swim School.

Squad sessions run Monday to Thursday evenings.

Lesson Duration: 1 hour
