Children Swim Courses
The earlier a person learns to swim the better. This is because at a young age, children can learn things very quickly and tend to have no fear. Swimming is a vital part of their PE curriculum and by Grade 6 they are required to swim 150m on their front and 50m on their back to pass the subject. Therefore getting them to learn sooner than later is definitely the best solution! In our children classes, we keep instructions as concise as possible allowing the children to discover and learn new movements. However, the course is very much results focussed with the goal of being able to swim the required distance by the time the child has reached Grade 6.
