PRIMARY AGED

Primary Aged Swimming Lessons

Our Primary Aged swimming lessons are designed for kids from 5 years to 12 years of age and are a great way to keep your children active and fit, while also learning an important life skill.

Whether your child has been in swimming lessons or just starting to learn to swim, we welcome all abilities. Our program is designed to teach children to swim well and to swim safer. We place a strong emphasis on teaching correct technique and provide a number of pathways for the more competent swimmer.

When kids start Primary School, it feels like parents have to begin to let go of the reigns a little. They are now being looked after by their school, perhaps having playdates without a parent or even a couple of nights on school camp. It’s a daunting feeling, and we all want our kids to be prepared and equipped with the right skills. Learning to swim and having the ability to know what to do in a sticky water situation, is vital – especially when children start primary school.

But let’s not forget about the joy of swimming too. Holidays by the beach, lazy summer days around the pool or even a camping trip along the river, we are surrounded by beautiful water. The joy of being a competent swimmer, and the memories attached to having fun, splashing around with a friend or family is irreplaceable. That being said, we always want them to be safe around water.

Enrolling and attending weekly swimming lessons will provide your child with valuable water safety knowledge and skills that they will keep for life.

Our Penguin and Seal levels guide our students through water safety and have a strong emphasis on building confidence in the water.
When looking at our Penguin level swimmers, we’re seeking a strong underwater pull, propulsive kick and great breath control. We also look at breaststroke kick if there is any understanding of the kick or even survival backstroke.

With our Seal levels we are looking for our swimmers to show a great understanding of freestyle, backstroke and developing an understanding of breaststroke and an introduction of butterfly.
We also want swimmers to increase the endurance and stamina in these levels; it may take 3-4 lessons before the swimmer doesn’t feel utterly exhausted at the end.

We understand that all students learn and progress differently, so don’t be surprised if your child’s class is doing a drill on the wall or even out of the water where the teacher can help manipulate limbs. By doing drills out of the water, it creates a greater awareness to the swimmers of what techniques they may need to work on.

If you’re not sure if weekly swimming lessons with Just Swimming will be right for you and your family, give us a call on 03 9878 7055 or send us an online enquiry, and we’ll extend an obligation-free swimming lesson trial and assessment.
