Adult and Baby Swim Classes in Ely

Ages 2-3

Children are wonderful explorers of the deep and their arms and legs work all over the place! We will be working using progressive practice to help them control those arms and legs of theirs and become more streamlined as they swim and have fun.

They will be practicing and beginning to master rhythmical breathing, exhaling under the water as they propel themselves through the water in their sea-horses or motorbikes.

We use the wonderful imagination of your children by playing challenging fun games, while learning new water safety and stroke development skills.

Swimming Crash Courses in Cambridgeshire

Ages 3-4

Children are starting to glide with ease and speed, becoming confident, happy swimmers. Most of your little ones are by this time swimming further and enjoying the transition to independent swimming.

They are practising progressive water safety skills (treading water, jumping in and swimming back the edge of pool) and stroke development. With our support and care, children are now able to achieve this easily, especially as their bodies are more developmentally ready.

As they become more ready, our instructors will guide children through the 7 stages of learning from the ASA national plan for teaching swimming, teaching them necessary swimming skills.

Swimming Lessons in Ely Cambridgeshire

Ages 4-11

Independent swim classes are for children 4 years+ that have developed the confidence to swim in a class without their parent. We teach through the stages of the ASA national plan for eaching swimming.

Within these classes 'beginners' will develop water confidence and basic skills. For new or timid swimmers, 'intermediate' develops alignment, water skills and fundamentals of stroke technique. For children from other swim schools or progressing from beginners we teach 'advanced' techniques developing stamina and good stroke technique.

As children are able to master different techniques they receive certificates to take home and be proud of. We carefully design our swimming lessons so that they are tailored to each child’s individual needs, so it does not matter what their previous experiences are before joining our swim school.
