Teaching is our swim programme for 3 year olds +

 There are five levels of Teaching:

  • Ducklings and Dolphins - Ducklings and Dolphins is our swim programme for 3-5 year olds. There are two levels of Ducklings 1 and 2. After this the swimmers progress to, two dolphin classes also titled 1 and 2. Our priority is water confidence, water safety and introduction to basic strokes. These skills are taught through our FUNdamental principles, incorporating specific tasks with fun elements. Each Ducklings class has 4 swimmers per teacher. Dolphin groups have a maximum of 6 swimmers per teacher depending on ages and level.

  • Improver 1 - improving swimmers with progression through the basic skills of water confidence and stroke technique, in particular the gross motor skills involved in basic kicking and pulling movements in all 4 strokes and the development of aquatic breathing.

  • Improver 2 - improving swimmers while refining the movements and breathing involved in the 4 basic strokes, while building strength and co-ordination.

  • Bronze - improving swimmer refining the movements and breathing involved in the 4 strokes, while building strength and co-ordination.

  • Silver - improving swimmer with 4 strokes, developing stamina in kick and increasing the range of aquatic skills. Consolidation of dive entries, legal starts and touch turns.
