Pre Level 1 Classes (Water Confidence) – Aged 2 ½ to 4 years

Aimed at toddlers and children between the ages of 2 ½ and 4 years, the classes serve as an introduction to the core lessons which usually start from 4 years old. Basic principles are introduced such as kicking, submersion, arm action, floating and body position on front and back. They improve and build upon the child’s confidence in and around water and prepare them for a more structured class. Parents participate in the water for this class. The emphasis is on play and fun, as at this early stage it is very important that children are happy in water before they progress to our full lesson programme.

About to Start

Children’s Lessons

We provide a comprehensive swimming instruction and lifesaving skills programme to swimmers from age 4 upwards. All of our instructors are fully qualified and experienced and we implement the Swim Ireland ‘Child Learn to Swim’ programme. This programme sets national standards for the teaching of swimming and comprises 8 levels, all of which have been specifically developed to encourage swimmers to acquire the skills necessary for swimming. It follows a progressive syllabus with each child earning certificates as they move upwards through the levels.
