Swim Kids Level 1 - 14 from Beginner Preschool to Advanced School Age Lessons


All of our courses are based on The Swim Centre's Pupil Achievement Swimming Standards which are part of a structured learning program, we call 'PASS'.


Preschool - Swim Kids Swimming Lessons 1 - 5


Our Swim Kids swimming lessons level 1 -5 focus on introducing and developing Fundamental Swim and ‘Swim to Survive’ skills and reactions.

 

Below are the elements of Fundamental skills taught in our Swim Kids swimming lessons:

 

  • Breath control: static ‘face in’ exhalation  ǀ  exhalation with movement  ǀ  inhalation &  exhalation coordination with movement
  • Body position: relaxed front &  back float  ǀ  streamline glide  ǀ  active movement
  • Stroke development: paddle  ǀ  freestyle & backstroke
  • Leg movement: natural kick  ǀ  freestyle kick & back kick  ǀ  intro to breaststroke
  • Coordination of: breath control  ǀ  body position  ǀ  stroke development  ǀ  leg movement
  • Swim to Survive: treading water  ǀ  sculling  ǀ  ‘return to safety’ intuitive reactions


STEP BY STEP PROGRESSION

Each of the Fundamental skills is progressed in logical steps through the stages of our Swim Kids swimming lessons. Below is an example of the logical steps in advancing one of those fundamental skills -  Swim Kids 1 – 5 : Stroke Development

 

  • Swim Kids 1: learning to paddle with the assistance of swimming aids
  • Swim Kids 2: paddling with confidence and starting to swim short distances without  assistance
  • Swim Kids 3: able to swim short distance unassisted, working hard on coordinating breathing to be able to swim further
  • Swim Kids 4: can swim 5 metres unassisted, it’s time to learn freestyle
  • Swim Kids 5: Able to coordinate 5 metres of freestyle with breathing

" Some swim schools are proud of being BIG, with big pools ... BUT big pools mean lots of classes

side by side and lots of noise. We say children learn best in small pools with warm water as they’re

quieter and not so intimating ... that’s why we specialise in teaching children. Phone 4443752 "
