Parent and Baby

15951398_lOur aim is to teach the parent how to have fun with their babies and to enjoy their experience of being in the water.

We teach the basics of water confidence in a friendly and happy environment.

Once confidence is gained we encourage the parent to take their babies swimming on their own and to use the skills learnt in the class, as well as have fun.

Beginners – ASA level 1 and 2

Non swimmers to 5 metres, 5 years and above. Our aim is to teach swimmers to be confident in the water. Swimmers will be able to put their face in the water and blow bubbles, pick an object up from the bottom of the pool and kick their legs with floats using Front Crawl and Backstroke technique, they will also have understanding of Breaststroke. Once they have gained confidence we then encourage them to take their feet off the bottom to swim a distance of 5 metres.
