Our swim school was one of the pioneers of the 15minute Private lesson (1:1 PRIVATE), which we believe is the most effective way for children at the pre-side-breathing stage to develop confidence and competency in the water. Not only do they learn more quickly, but our Instructors are able to focus on technique at this all-important stage. We are often complimented on the stroke technique shown by our students many years later.
Group lessons are also available at the following Instructor : Child Ratios
1:4 (Beg St Devt) 30 mins
1:5 (Stroke Devt – Small Group) 30 mins
1:8 (Stroke Devt/Mini Squad) 45 mins
1:16 (Squad) 1 hour
1:6 (Parent/Toddler Group Classes) 30 mins
Ability Level Codes for Swimmers
It can be very difficult placing children in the right groups via a phone or email booking. Ideally we like to assess each child prior to the start of a new term, however this is not always logistically possible. In order to assist us in placing your child in the level that will best suit your child, please refer to the Levels below.
P = Private Recommended for swimmers not yet competent at side breathing in freestyle. Will be taught Freestyle/some backstroke and a brief intro to fly, breast. We strongly believe that students master these skills at a faster rate than when taught in a group class. 15 minutes one on one lesson.
BSD = Beginner Stroke Able to kick a length of pool on board & swim 25 m freestyle. Learning all 4 strokes but not working the whole length of the pool. ½ lengths only. 4/class for 30 minutes.
SD = Stroke Development Doing all length work. Can swim all 4 strokes but need technique work. 5 / class : 30 minutes
MINI SQUAD Preparation for Squad. Increasing endurance in all 4 strokes/ Intro to drills. 8/class: 45 minutes
