Aquatots

To embrace our unique name for a swim school which is linked to the heritage of the Wigram Airforce Base, we also have creative exciting names for levels within the swimming program.


Aquatots - 6 months to 2-3 years  (Gliders) 1:8 Ratio

 

Initially we will be offering just one Aquatots. As we are a skills based program we are flexible on what age a child moves from an aquatots class to a preschool class. A child will move to preschool level at 3 years if they have not already moved.

Preschool Transition Class - 2-3 years (Tugboat) 1:3 Ratio

This class is specifically designed for 2 – 3 year olds without the parent in the water.
There is a maximum of 3 children in the class.
This class helps with separation anxiety from the parent and all different reactions from children expected.
This class is ideal for the aquatot that needs that extra and more individual attention to keep progress occurring.

Preschool - 3 to 5 years

All classes are for 30 minutes. Classes will be fun with an emphasis on quality swimming, while learning great foundation skills.

3 levels for children who aren’t confident in the water through to the competent swimmer:

Submarine 1:4 ratio

Cruise Ship 1:4 ratio

Speed Boat 1:5 ratio

School Age - 5 years and up

All levels and teaching within the Propeller programme are ability based rather than age based. We put a lot of emphasis on quality technical based teaching getting the foundations right for each skill. Incorporated into the sessions are fun and water safety.

Swimmers progress to the next level once they have attained the requirements and don’t wait till the end of term. Assessments are ongoing so the swimmer keeps progressing during the term.

We do have specific classes for teenagers who are in the beginning and developing stages of swimming.

All classes are for 30 minutes.

Helicopters 1:4 ratio

Red Checkers 1:5 ratio

Spitfire 1:5 ratio

Boeing 1:6 ratio

Jet 1:6 ratio

Stroke Development - 45 minute sessions

Stroke development levels follow on from the 5 levels in school age and are skills based. In these levels we are refining technique
with extra distance and further developing all strokes up to mini squad level.

Bomber 1:7 ratio

Concord 1: 8 ratio (mini squad)
