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.

For children learning to kick on a board, float in a streamline position and start to perform fundamental safety skills. To advance swimmers must be able to kick in a streamline position, with straight legs for 5 metres. Swimmers also need to be confortable kicking on their backs in a streamline position.
