Our Swim Levels

We start these classes from just 4 months of age! They are great for water familiarisation and helping babies get used to being in the water. This can help immensely when it comes to bath time! This level is great for social interaction with others, as well as providing lots of stimulus in a new and comfortable environment – our year round warm water really helps!


This is the second level of our parent and child classes and is great for motor skills development. Here we work on water confidence and some more advanced movements in the water. This can be a good opportunity to educate parents on water safety and helping to understand what your child loves about our swimming lessons.


This is our transitional level where we start to get the young swimmers ready for being in the water without a parent. Here we emphasise learning independently and begin to navigate being in the water without constantly being held. It’s a great start to physical activity for young children!


This is where we reduce our class sizes to a low student to teacher ratio. It’s the first level without a parent and swimmers continue to participate independently. The basic skill development for this level includes floating on back and water safety skills with an emphasis on learning to kick.


Here we start to develop strokes, beginning with freestyle and backstroke. We introduce drills that help strengthen swimming abilities, begin teaching breathing in freestyle and start to learn body positioning for streamline.


This is where we begin laps of unassisted swimming! Quality over quantity though so we’ll be looking to see all the skills learnt in previous levels put together and learn to swim fluently with bilateral breathing. This is where we build endurance and develop stamina.


Mantarays have an understanding of freestyle and backstroke and are ready to build up their stamina with continuous swimming. They will learn how to kick correctly wearing flippers. Mantarays will also have an understanding to breaststroke kick and will have an introduction of butterfly kick.


In this level, we introduce breaststroke and butterfly skills and the swimmers begin learning lane etiquette. We build stamina and fitness by increasing the distance now that the swimmers have their basic strokes! Even in our higher levels, we will still focus on continual stroke correction to ensure the swimmers are always practising appropriate technique.


Here we move into starting to learn competitive skills such as race starts, turns and finishes. We prepare the swimmers for a Squad environment as this is the final level of our Swim School Programme! Continual stroke correction is still a focus, whilst we build up the swimmer’s fitness level and increase their speed!
