If we are currently running lessons, you can see our most current schedule by clicking here.
We want our swimmers to swim with style, efficiency and water smarts. Learning to swim well is challenging with many little nuances along the way that need to be shaped. It is our firm belief that to learn to swim well and in a safe environment, every child needs 100% of the instructor’s attention for the entire lesson and so we only offer 1:1 lessons.
During most school holidays we run Intensive courses where lessons are daily, Monday to Friday. You can book any and all weeks you wish your child to swim. Because of the intensity, we see rapid progress in this program.
During the term time, we sometimes run courses booked like all other after school activities. You will book a day and a time and attend your lesson every week in your designated spot. Lessons can be requested Monday through Saturday.
Every child’s needs, personality and path is different. Our instructors are all trained in house to use the same teaching techniques, but they too bring their own personalities and strengths to the pool. We take the process of choosing the right instructor for each child very seriously. Our booking process is no joke.
