Swimming Levels (Kids Only)
Introductory level to swimming. This level is for swimmers with little or no experience in the water. Children who will not put their face in the water may demonstrate some anxiety over entering the water or leaving a parent. These classes are designed to encourage children to enter the water with minimal trauma.
This is an introductory level for most children with minimal formal instruction. Students at this level cannot swim but are confident in the water. These students will put their face in water and are able to swim to the pools edge.
This is also an introductory level for most children. Here they are taught how to freestyle swim. They are given an understanding of the breathing techniques and taught importance of continual kicking.
At this level swimmers are confident and will learn to co-ordinate breathing, use of arms and legs whilst swimming freestyle and backstroke. Diving will also be introduced at this level.
At this level swimmers are confident and will learn to co-ordinate breathing, use of arms and legs whilst swimming freestyle and backstroke over the length of 12m to 25m. This is also the first time that students will also be introduced to survival skills. Students coming into the program at this level may be able to swim 25m, but their breathing and kicking coordination will be poor.
At this level, swimmers are learning the beginning and ending of the individual strokes. They will learn the breaststroke technique. The swimmer will soon understand the fundamentals of breaststroke kick. The swimmer will be able to swim a minimum of 25m freestyle and backstroke. Our instructors will instruct from both in and out of the water.
