Aquakidz is the second programme we offer where children will enjoy progressing through the Swim England National Plan for Teaching Swimming FUNdamental Stages 1- 7.
By the end of the programme swimmers will be competent in all 4 strokes in a relaxed manner.
Swimming will then be invited to join our Aquastarz or Rising Starz squad, or join a local competitive swimming club if this is the route they would like to go down.
We understand that not everyone wants to be a competitive swimmer so our Rising Starz squad will continue swimming development and will also introduce lifesaving skills.
Children will work towards swimming awards in the Aquakidz programme and these will be tested ongoing through the term and children will receive a badge slip with which award they have achieved at the end of term for you to purchase, these are £3.50* each.
In the Aquakidz programme we work on continuous progression and will let you know as soon as your child is ready to progress into the next class.
The lessons run for 30 minutes in the Aquakidz programme and have the following ratios:
- Non Swimmers – Beginners – Improvers: Max of 6 a class (some venues a Max of 5)
- Advanced: Max of 8 a class
In all our Non swimmer & beginner classes we have helpers to assist the teacher if necessary.
