This class is for our intermediate 8 Plus year olds who pass out of our beginner Starfish 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, blow bubbles, perform a comfortable streamline pencil manoeuvre and back-float
- Final Goals: Swims 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.
Note: We don't have a big demand for this class as many 8+ Year old children have passed this stage. If you feel that your child would fit best into this class please add them to the waiting list. Once we have a least TWO children registered we will open a class. The next class up from this class is an Turtle 8+ Years. Please click here for the Turtle Classes.
The tuition fee is R1320 a term for one half hour class once per week. We offer various discounts for additional children from the same family and additional discounts if you would like your child to attend more than one class a week. See the above table for all the prices. Our swim terms are normally 10 weeks (10 Lessons), but due to COVERT-19 messing up the calendars a little, this term is 11 weeks.
Pro-rata Term Fees
If you join part the way through a term then you can take advantage of our pro-rata rates. This will be calculated automatically by our system and will show as a "Discount" on your email confirmation.
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.
No spaces are guaranteed until you have registered online, received an email confirming that you have enrolled in a class and paid for the class in full (Please CHECK your JUNK folder if you don't immediately receive the mail).
PAYMENT TERMS: All fees are due at least 7 days prior to the start of the first class.
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.
Bookings for next term
If your child has a time slot this term, they will automatically be given the same slot for the next and subsequent terms. We will send you an email before the term starts to confirm your class. If you DO NOT want this class anymore please just email us back and let us know, and we will happily cancel your enrolment.
