Learn to Swim

Water Familiarisation for beginner swimmers | AquaBuddies North Bondi Swim School | Sydney
Crab
available at our Coogee & Bondi location 

Our Crab level is for complete beginners that are typically 3 years of age and toilet trained. This level focuses on water confidence and safety.

 

It is a great introduction to our swim school regardless of whether your child has never had a swimming lesson or is transitioning from a parent/baby program.

 

We understand that a child’s first swimming lesson can sometimes be a nervous time for both parent and child, which is why pride ourselves in creating a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

Turtle
available at our Coogee & Bondi location 

Turtles are usually at preschool age. They are at a level where feel happy and confident in the water.

 

They have developed breath control and can float with a board. They are now beginning to swim short distances independently.

 

At this level we progress the skills that were learnt in Crab, therefore they must be able to follow basic instructions from the teacher.

Goldfish

Goldfish are usually advanced preschool aged children or early primary school age. At this stage Instructors build upon the skills learnt as a Turtle, as they continue to gain strength and start to show more strength and coordination.

The focus is on developing propulsive movements whilst maintaining good body position.
