Once a child reaches the age of four they
can join lessons on their own. Confident
children at this age should be able to
achieve basic stroke co-ordination with
the use of swim aids.
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
In this stage, swim aids will be removed
in stages, until all swim aids
The stamina of the stroke will be worked
on when a basic stroke is achieved
(without aids!). At the same time a high
level of co-ordination is still needed.
Our aim is for your child to be safe in the
water, where ever it may be. When your
child has achieved Stage 4, s/he will be
able to swim under water with
confidence, float and swim 25 meters
breast stroke (the survival stroke), 25m
full back and front crawl.
