Beginners & Water Confidence

Class Ratio

6 children per Instructor


Children are supported ‘in the water’ by their Instructor in the shallow end


Children should be in reception, able to follow instructions and wait for their turn without parental supervision. For their personal safety there is a minimum height restriction of 90cm.


The focus of this class is ensuring children can move horizontally through the water. We build ‘water confidence’ and practice the basics of floating, kicking and pulling. Children will work on their fronts and backs. As these children are young we are mindful to keep changing exercises regularly so they stay engaged and focused.

Covid Secure Measures

We are following all Government advice and recommendations from our governing body the STA (Swim Teachers Assoication). We appreciate the huge benefits of having an Instructor ‘in the water’ working closely with our Beginners, it really helps build water confidence and allows us to give support to ensure speedy progress. We will continue to offer beginner lessons with Instructors in the water while restrictions allow.
