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: 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.
  • Final Goals: Swim at least 20 meters Freestyle taking side breaths and Backstroke, swim elementary Breaststroke and Butterfly.

Tuition Fees

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.

Full Classes

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.
