We have 7 levels in our learn to swim program for school ages as well as a transition class if your little ones are new to the program. WETLANDERS (3 - 5 years)
Wetlanders is a transition class aimed at easing the journey between parent/child classes to independent teacher/child classes. You will be slowly transitioned out of the water as your child's confidence grows.
Our first level is all about ensuring a strong foundation. We focus on floating, gliding, breathing and confidence in being underwater, so from here swimmers are ready to add on new elements.
Next we really work on kicks, which is crucial to a swimmer's stroke. We look at ensuring a strong technique across all primary strokes.
It's time to add on arms! Once combined, swimmers will develop strong, coordinated movement through the water.
Mastering breathing and timing can be one of the most challenging aspects of learning to swim. Our drive class is dedicated to ensuring swimmers are completely at ease in this area.
Now all the primary strokes are perfected, we look at increasing the distances and improving each swimmer's individual technique.
Continuing with distance drills and technique, swimmers will also focus on safety and how to respond to a variety of aquatic emergencies.
Our final level prepares students for future opportunities such as water sport, competitions and squad programs. We focus on distance and overall fitness in a pre-squad team setting.
Following Graduate we offer a pre-squad program. It’s for kids who have finished our graduate program and want to keep swimming, but don’t want to commit to a formal squads program. We’ll assist with further refining your stroke and keep you fit and focused. Ideal for swimming carnival preparation! BRONZE
