Our syllabus is broken into two half terms, each group will follow a structured Programme. This is based mainly around the Amateur Swimming Association national plan for teaching swimming stages 1 to 10. This programme will help your children develop confidence in the water, independence and water safety skills. The programme will also focus on stroke development as well as distance, safe entry and exit procedures, turns and under water activities.
We also teach ASA Personnel survival, teaching the children a variety of skills treading water, HELP and Huddle, Straddle jumps, swimming in clothing and information about survival in cold water immersion. In 2009 we started The Royal Life Saving Society, Rookie Lifeguard course, which includes basic first aid, resuscitation, reaching and towing, a great course, one to watch out for as this course will fill up fast….!
All children receive certificates and badges at a cost of £3.00 each, this is optional.
