If any of the following statements are true of your child, then a Starfish is the perfect class:-

The students are working on gaining breath control, floating, submersion, and back-floats. A great combination of fun and challenges, this class creates a base skill set to build on as our students move into the intermediate and upper levels.

Final Goal: Swim 3-5 meters Doggy Paddle with no floatation, blow bubbles, perform a comfortable streamline pencil manoeuvre and back-float

If your child can swim about 3-5 meters doggy paddle, with no floatation, then the Octopus is the perfect class.

This class is for our intermediate 5/6/7 year olds who pass out of our beginner Learn to Swim classes. A LOT of skills must be mastered to pass out of this class. As an introduction to strokes, the focus is on independence and breath control in the water while extending the swim distance and developing the coordination to gain independent breaths while swimming. This is followed by proper breath control techniques as these students move into building endurance. Technical breakdown of the freestyle stroke also begins at this level.

  • Prerequisite: Swim 3-5 meters Doggy Paddle with no floatation
  • Final Goal: Swim 10 meters with no floatation, face in the water for a 10 count, comfortable rolling to a back-float and can swim basic Freestyle and Backstroke.

If your child can swim 10 meters with no floatation, face in the water for a 10 count, comfortable rolling to a back-float and can swim basic Freestyle and Backstroke then Turtle is the perfect class.

In this class, we transition the unilateral side breathing learned in the Octopus Class into the traditional freestyle stroke, which is bilateral side breathing (to both sides). In addition to refining freestyle technique, our coaches continue to build the endurance of their students. Also, the elementary backstroke is taught from start to finish in this level. This stroke is a safety stroke rather than a competitive stroke, but is essential if ever faced with an open water situation.

  • Prerequisite: Swim 10 meters with no floatation, face in the water for a 10 count, comfortable rolling to a back-float and can swim basic Freestyle and Backstroke.
  • Final Goal: Swim at least 20 meters Freestyle taking side breaths and Backstroke, swim elementary Breaststroke and Butterfly.

Tuition Fees

The fees are for the full term (or Pro Rata amount if you join part the way into the term)  and are normally paid in advance, and at least 7 days prior to the start of the your first class.
We have TWO ways of paying. EFT or card payment at the coffee shop. We prefer not to take CASH!
IMPORTANT – Non-payment of fees by the due date could result in you losing your space, as many of the popular times have waiting lists.

Family discounts

Do you have a big family? We would love to help. We offer a family discount as shown below.
When you “Register” for a class, these discounts are automatically included on your account.

Pro-rata fees if you join after the term has started

If your child misses a few swim lessons as the term has already started,  it will not have a significant impact on their overall progress and development.  Teaching children to swim is all about repetition.  You are most welcome to join our classes at any time, even if the term has already started. Our professional instructors will always make you feel welcome. 

When you join after the term has started you will automatically be billed the pro-rata fees for the balance of the term.

Full classes and waiting lists

If a particular class that you are interested in is full then “Waitlist” will show on the course table. You can add your child to the wait list. Whenever a space becomes available we will immediately let you know. Spaces become available in two ways; the first due to cancellations and the second when we open new additional classes. Please use the “Waitlist” option so that we can gauge demand and open additional classes for you.

Our Make-Up Lesson Policy is the most flexible of any swim school that you will find out there. We help to make our lessons fit seamlessly into your busy schedule. For more information and  full instructions please click HERE!

Automatic Bookings for Next Term

Offering automatic bookings of classes for the next term can be highly beneficial for parents and children. Here are some of the advantages for you:
Convenience:
By offering automatic bookings, parents don’t have to worry about manually booking their child’s class each term. This can save time and make the process more convenient, especially for busy parents.
Consistency:
With automatic bookings, parents can ensure that their child has the same class at the same day and time each week. This can be highly beneficial for children, as they can get used to the routine and structure of attending the same class each week. Consistency is essential in learning any skill, and attending the same class regularly can help children build on their skills and progress faster.
Familiarity:
Children can become attached to their swim instructor, and attending the same class each week with the same instructor can help build a rapport and trust between them. It can be challenging for children to adjust to a new class and instructor every term, which can impact their motivation and progress.
Avoiding the hassle of finding a new class:
Finding a new class each term can be a hassle for parents, as they have to search for available classes that fit their schedule and their child’s needs. Offering automatic bookings can alleviate this stress and ensure that parents don’t have to keep searching for a new class each term.
In summary, offering automatic bookings for classes can provide convenience, consistency, familiarity, and peace of mind for parents and children. It can help children progress faster, build trust with their instructor, and avoid the hassle of finding a new class each term.
