Our second group, where children are now a little older and have mastered swimming a little unaided. They are now working on developing their front crawl and a little backstroke, concentrating on developing a great kick and horizontal body positions.

Stage 2 – 4 up to 50 metres unaided swimming in two strokes.

(Advanced)

Our top learn-to-swim group is based on the comprehensive development of all four strokes – butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke front crawl. All of these must be mastered before moving to our Sharks Swim Squad!

Your child will work on some competitive elements of swimming at this level too such as race diving, tumble turns and relay racing.

Stage 7 up to 600 metres swimming all four strokes correctly.

(Pre-competition)

If your child has the necessary skills and wants to advance further we offer a pre-competition level ‘squad’ which will be an hour-long and will give them all the competitive tools they will need to progress smoothly into a club. Coached by two highly experienced coaches, Scott & Josh Mckenzie they will progress quickly and be pushed to achieve several awards too!

Stage 8-10 up to 5000 metres.
