Go Swimstars programme
A childs first learn to swim experience is one of the most important in terms of capturing and retaining their interest.
We believe the best way to achieve this is to create safe environments in which children can be introduced to the water whilst having fun and by providing a progressive learn to swim programme that is both challenging and rewarding.
Our unique programme includes 5 ability stages
Take your child from Splash to Swimstar with:
Water based Instructors assisted by our Water Buddies
Essential lifesaving skills
Fun and interactive themed lessons
Parent portal to track your child's progress
Expertly trained Instructors inspiring your child to swim
Reward scheme to constantly recognise your child's efforts and progress
This is normally our entry level group and often the first time that children enter the pool without their parent. We have Water Buddies in the pool to help with this transition and to focus on building their confidence.
By this level we are introducing all four strokes and basic breathing techniques. We focus on distance swimming with swimmers being capable of 10m & 15m and children becoming less reliant on buoyancy aids.
We introduce more technical stroke work at this level. Our swimmers may still need light support from buoyancy aids which will all help to improve their stroke ability and confidence. We work toward distance swimming of up to 25m.
Swimmers at this stage have a strong level of
confidence and are capable of swimming over 50m. Swimmers will be demonstrating a good breathing technique, strong leg action with a great body position in the water.
Our Shark swimmers are normally swimming in lanes down the length of the pool. We normally 4 lanes to work through. We work on technique and building stamina, along with perfecting diving techniques.
