30 minutes (previously 45 minutes)

Class Ratio

9 Children per Instructor per class


Children are divided into three lanes swimming lengthways and are coached by an Instructor poolside


Children must have a good technique on all 4 strokes and be able to swim confidently a distance of 200m.

This class is suitable for swimmers who are working on STA Seal level or ASA stage 7.


We continue to encourage good technique on all 4 strokes with more difficult drills that build on the children’s strength and endurance and longer distances. The pace of this class is much faster.  This is great preparation for those children who are interested in  club swimming.


Covid Secure Measures

We have reduced pool capacity to 9 swimmers. There will be 3 swimmers per lane to accommodate social distancing. Each swimmer will be allocated to a pool station with labelled equipment for their use only. Front crawl side breathing will be taught to one side only. To accommodate a mixed ability class and to reduce any overtaking lanes will be allocated accordingly to stamina and the distance and difficult of each drill will be adjusted to the swimmers abilities.   We believe this set up allows us to use the pool safely and accommodates siblings who may be different levels.
