Programme overview

Water Babies

From water babies to swim stars

Swimming is a skill kids will love for life and it’s important for parents’ peace of mind too. Our world-recognised programme teaches swimming through a great mix of fun activities and they’ll soon become safe, competent and confident swimmers in:

  • Front crawl
  • Backstroke
  • Breaststroke
  • Butterfly

Key stages

Baby and preschool

It’s never too soon to start! Our foundation programme encourages parents to share ‘confidence time’ in the water with their little ones.

Babies and preschoolers learn basic motor skills and have lots of fun as they start their learn-to-swim journey. Play games and watch as they get used to being in the water - all preparation for starting their swim journey when they're older.

5-9 year olds

From the age of 5-8 for girls and 6-9 for boys, children are at just the right stage of development to build on their growing strength and movement skills. At this stage, the focus is on specific water skills like safe entry and exit from the pool, rotation and orientation, and the importance of streamlining, buoyancy and balance. Having gained confidence in and under the water, children go on to learn aquatic breathing, how to travel effectively through the water and accomplish the various stroke techniques.

Making progress

When children have achieved all the elements within their stage of the swimming plan, they can move onto the next one. Our expert coaches conduct individual end-of-term assessments and advise the best way forward for your child.

We offer 12-week courses for children during term times, holiday courses and run our ASA-endorsed exclusive junior coaching for promising swimmers, All Stars.
