Kids

 

Our Kids Programme is for children 3 years and up and consists of 5 levels from Beginners to Strokes 3. Children go to classes alone. During school term time we run scheduled courses. During holiday periods these classes are available to book as Drop In Classes.
 
We do NOT strap any flotation devices to students - all skills described below are done WITHOUT assistance. 

 

Beginners

If your child does is not comfortable in the water and won’t submerge by themselves, then this is the course for them.

 

We build up your child’s confidence through a fun, no tears appraoch. Students are encouraged to challenge themselves but at their own pace. Upon graduation from this programme children will be able to submerge willingly. 

Class duration: 30 mins / No. of students: 4 / No equipment needed

Paddlers

Children are able to do a rudimentary doggy paddle of at least 3 metres upon starting this course.  

 

The focus of this class will be for children to be comfortable holding floats on their front and back; using a kick board; learn correct breathing patterns; and improving their paddle.  Upon graduation, children will be promoted to Strokes 1.

Class duration: 30 mins / No. of students: 4 / Bring your own kick board
