Seal Class

Age Group – 6 and upwards.

  • Furthering knowledge on the different strokes; freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke. Use of different drills to improve and make the stroke more technically effective.
  • Proper diving technique: this technique will further develop the dive skill for proper body position while improving on speed, balance and agility.
  • A basic introduction to a tumble turn: This skill is different for every stroke allowing the child to quickly change direction when starting a new lap.

The main objective in this level, allows children to develop a sense of swimming as a hobby or as well as a sport. The technical aspects to swimming are endless and can be improved on over a lifetime, but the basics are always developed better and more effectively when they are learnt at the early stages.
Once a clear direction of what the child wants is developed, if their choice is to take it up as a sport, we offer the competitive side of swimming. This opens a lot of opportunities locally as well as internationally.
