This is our main private exclusive pool location. Our beautiful 25m x 10m pool with depth of 0.9m – 1.5m for deep water practice.
We offer classes for all ages and abilities.
For our beginner swimmers an adult is required in the water to support their own child until they have mastered their face & eyes in, breath control and can float unaided. By having this “one to one” parent support, it means they receive 100 percent practice time during their 30 minute lesson. More practice means faster progress.
We do not use arm bands of discs during our lessons. Children need to learn and feel their own buoyancy in the water.
Having Parent Support Classes for all beginner swimmers allows parents and children to learn together, giving opportunity during lessons to work on a 1-1 basis with their own child, meaning 100 practice time. This could be by practicing as a group or doing separate practice where needed during the group class.
It is best to learn to swim without goggles. Please do not bring them to class for your beginner swimmers.
Once “eyes in” has been mastered we do allow goggles to be worn but during every class ALL children will be asked to remove them to reinforce that they “can do it” without them. We won’t be wearing goggles if we unexpectedly fall in!
Our Teachers instruct all lessons from the poolside to ensure they have an overview of the whole class, this also ensures that the correct practice is being performed safely at all times.
We follow the learn to swim principles of water familiarisation, breath control, submersion (never forced), floating, gliding, propulsion and breathing.
Water safety underpins all of our learn to swim principles.
A child’s readiness will determine the introduction of the next progressive teaching skill.
Beginner swimmers cannot progress if they are wearing arm discs or are using a noodle to lean on for the whole lesson. They need to master their independent floating skills, which is the key to learning to swim properly.
We offer classes for all ages and abilities. Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced swimmers.
This type of protective Swim Nappy must be used during classes www.splashabout.com. See Swim Nappy information under our Information tab.
