School Age Swimming Lessons

Swimming lessons for swimmers aged 5-12 years. Your swimmer will build confidence and develop strong technique across all strokes in this program. Children will progress through the levels at their own pace.

This program runs in line with school terms and students are assessed on a regular basis, moving up a level when they are ready, at any point during the term.

School Age lessons are taught in both the indoor 25m pool and the outdoor 50m pool with lessons running for 30 minutes. Class sizes range from 4 – 8 students, to one instructor. Here is everything you need to know about our school age program:
