Learn to Swim Classes
At Go Swimming we follow a stage based survival skill learn to swim program, where children repeat basic core swimming skills every week. Survival skills that we teach for babies and beginners include include safe entry and exit from the water, and floating. As the children progress though our program they will also learn to tread water, and to use kick boards and noodles to help assist in water rescues. We also have a safety week every 6 months where children learn about swimming in clothes! As children move up through our stage based program, we continually introduce more advanced skills to progress their swimming ability. Sometimes a child will master these new swimming skills introduced very quickly, and sometimes these new swimming skills may take significantly longer. All children will however improve over time and become safe and competent swimmers if you remain consistent with your child’s swimming lesson attendance. Trust in our learn to swim program, we have been doing it since 1980, it works, and always feel free to talk to your child's teacher or the swim school manager if you are unsure about how your child is progressing. As a guide we believe that when children pass our Dolphins class (stage 9) they are well on their way to becoming safe and competent swimmers.
