We aim to support a water loving culture that progresses beyond the swimming pool. We want to give your family the gift of good water skills so you can enjoy all aquatic environments together. We want your little swimmer to grow into a confident, water loving, heathy young person who has formed friendships with other likeminded young people and their families.
Babies: Water acquaintance
Join our 3 to 6 month old FREE ‘tiny bubs’ water bonding program. The three levels in Water Acquaintance is introductory water association. This is the essential foundation of water confidence. Each of the three levels is wonderful bonding time with your baby where you are both learning the importance of water safety.
This is a transitional program where swimmers are developing their confidence without their parents in the water. You will see your swimmer will start to understand how to position their body independently to allow for arcuate kicking, floating and using ‘big arms’. This is a developmental stage of foundational swimming will enable stream-lined and efficient movement through the water in higher level swimming.
Swimmers will enhance their stroke technique and commence preparing for squads and racing. They are introduced to squad drills, swim times, learn how to read and swim to the clock, and apply a clear understanding of each stoke requirement and swimming discipline.
