ASA Stage 2
So it is best never to compare one child to another. Even siblings!! When good co-ordination has been achieved, for breast stroke, back stroke and front crawl over the distance of 5m with minimal aids (one at most); the child will move to the next level. If you continue swimming at the same time as lessons, confidence grows and swimming will become enjoyable and more relaxed. Children then achieve more!

Please don't worry if your child doesn't want to practice when you take them swimming. This is their time to enjoy the water and have fun.
Teaching swimming to your child is a mile stone like learning to drive. And like learning to drive it is less frustrating and far quicker if you don't teach your own!!

We also work with older children to become water confident, over come any fears and improve all four strokes, breast stroke, back stroke, front crawl and butterfly.

All of my teachers are experienced in teaching both the National Teaching Scheme and the Ducklings awards.

They are CRB Checked, Lifeguard Trained, First Aiders, and Minimum Level 2 Qualified in teaching swimming. All teachers attend Continual Development Seminars.


At the next stage, swim aids will be removed in stages. The pupil has to reestablished their balance and co-ordination in the water. This can take time and patience from both child and parents.

All children are difference, so they all take different lengths of time to learn.

Some children take to breast stroke easily yet may hate putting their face in the water; others may live under the water but may not feel confident on their back.
