After 3 years of age, children can have group lessons without parents being in water with them.
To join our small group lessons (maximum of 3 per class), your child should be ready to follow instructions from a swim teacher and happy and confident in the water without a parent.
In our small group lessons (2 or 3 children per group), children are grouped based on their swimming abilities and sometimes their age.
The end goal of our swimming lessons and teaching programme is to teach children all four competitive swimming strokes.
The four main strokes are:
In our lessons, children also learn other important aquatic skills like diving and treading water.
Children progressively learn different skills and swimming strokes at different stages of our programme.
Our aim is to take all of our swimmers to full swimming competency and become well-rounded swimmers based on the Swim England definition.
Children who completed our ‘Advanced Level‘ are able to swim all four strokes, swim 200 meters continuously with good strokes, dive from the poolside and tread water for at least 60 seconds.
