Waterbabies

These classes are conducted for infants and toddlers from 6 months to 3 years of age. Classes are facilitated by an AUSTSWIM certified instructor with an AUSTSWIM recommended facilitator/carer-child ratio of 1 to 8 (that is 1 instructor to 8 carer/child pairings).

The emphasis in these sessions is on water familiarisation for the participant in a fun and safe environment - with a little bit of singing along the way!

*NB: All Waterbaby classes (Waterbaby 1 and Waterbaby 2) are only conducted on weekends.

Tadpoles

Our Tadpole classes are recommended for preschool aged children who come independently into water. Once again, emphasis is on learning in a fun way whilst mastering the important swimming skills and water safety skills of bubbles, kicking and paddling as well as propulsion, floatation and breath control.

Teacher:Student ratio is 1:4

Frogs

Our Frog classes begin their progression from "dog paddle" to "big arms". We also begin to learn our "bubble and breathe" routines in these classes. Towards the middle of this level we begin the concept of bi-lateral breathing ("bubble, bubble, breath arm" breathing). We also introduce backstroke kicking.

Dolphins

The Dolphin classes continue to learn the basics of bi-lateral breathing (ie "bubble, bubble, breathe") for the freestyle stroke. This class also commences working the length of the pool. We also work on some more backstroke drills and begin to introduce breaststroke (froggy) and butterfly (dolphin) kicking. This class also working on appropriate entries including safe diving.
