Answers to FAQ’s:

  • There are two programs being run: 1 starting on Monday the 2nd Jan and the other starting on the 16th of Jan
  • They both run for 2 weeks and consist of 6 lessons in total; 3 per week on Mon, Wed and Fri, they run for 30 minutes
  • Your children can attend both ‘programs’ and if they do this your children will continue to move up the levels after they have completed them
  • Payment is required in advance; last day to pay is either the 2nd of Jan or the 16th depending on what program your child is going to be part of
  • Once your child has met the requirements of a level they will move to the next one, which will involve joining a new group; generally this is done at the end of each week, unless they are showing great ability
  • Please have your child in their togs and ensure they are ready go at least 10 minutes before their scheduled lesson, this ensures there is no time wasted.
  • There are 5 levels in total and completion of level five would mean your child can swim 50m of Freestyle, Breaststroke and Backstroke. Level 1 focuses on children who are not very confident in the water and need help to put their head under for example.
