Children's Swimming Lessons.

As a centre we have chosen to operate the "Learn to Swim" programme from Swim Ireland as they are the national governing body for swim education in Ireland. The programme will empower and inspire children to challenge themselves on their own personal journey of learning to swim. The curriculum encompasses a range of teaching methodologies with a real focus on repetitive, accurate and quality practice with elements of guided discovery. 

The programme is delivered through structured play, ensuring the lessons are well planned with clear learning outcomes whilst engaging children in fun and relevant activities.



Understanding the programme!

Aqua Skills 1 and 2.
In Aqua Skills Level 1 and Level 2 a number of Core Aquatic Skills are introduced, reinforced and consolidated, whilst developing water confidence. These skills, which are made up of Entries and Exits, Submersion and Aquatic Breathing, Rotation, Floatation, Streamlining, Sculling, Movement and Propulsion and Co-ordination and Balance, will “water proof” children and lay the foundation for the development of stroke technique.
 

 

Aqua Strokes 3 to 7

These later stages will build on the Core Aquatic Skills of the first two levels, encouraging the development of body position, leg action, arm action, breathing and timing of all four competitive strokes. The short and quality practices encouraged in these levels will develop efficient swimmers and, as a result, individuals who will understand the aquatic environment and be equipped to maintain their own safety for longer.




Learn To Swim Passport!
While not compulsory the official Swim Ireland passport is a fantastic way to track our child's progress and it is something that they really enjoy checking weekly to see if they have achieved new skills. Designed to motivate children's in a fun and interactive way they are available from reception.
