LEARN TO SWIM
Learn to swim program
There are five Learn to Swim levels in our program starting at Water Safety and progressing through to Advanced. All swimmers are constantly monitored and once they are able to perform the skills required to progress to the next level they will be assessed and the parents will be notified. Swimmers progress through the levels as their skills and ability improves. As the swimmer attains each level they will receive a certificate of achievement. It is important to keep in mind that learning to swim is a completely individual experience and all swimmers will have varying rates of improvement.
We welcome children from 4 years of age or those turning 4 during the term.
Starfish (Level 1)
For children learning to kick with strong, straight legs with and without a kickboard, float in a streamline position and start to perform fundamental safety skills. To advance swimmers must be able to kick in a streamline position (no board), with straight legs for 5 metres. Swimmers also need to be comfortable kicking on their backs in a streamline position.
Turtles (Level 2)
For swimmers who can perform have a strong straight kick and correct streamline body positions. This level introduces freestyle catch up arms and kicking on their back without a board. To advance a swimmers must be able to perform at least four 'big' freestyle arms, while maintaining streamline position and straight leg kick and can kick independently on their back for 5 metres.
