School Age

School Age

School age swimmers will still be concentrating on independence, water confidence, breath control, buoyancy and movement. There is a strong focus on personal confidence building and survival skills.

This group will begin learning correct techniques in the following areas; Freestyle, Backstroke, Survival Backstroke, Breaststroke, Sidestroke, We also begin the skills for learning Butterfly.

Important Notes:

*Children MUST wear caps and goggles for every class. 
*BY the time children begin learning breaststroke we recommend they stop wearing boardshorts and wear either bike short style or speedo bathers to allow for the movement required by the stroke.
*For colder months please keep your children warm after class. Read our Winter Ideas for tips.
