This level has been introduced to close the gap between the Turtle and Seal level and is restricted to children aged 6 and up. The children who join the group must have a basic understanding of Freestyle and backstroke and can swim 20 meters unaided. In the Octopus level we will be focusing on perfecting the 3 strokes, Freestyle, backstroke and
breaststroke. We will also introduce children to the 4th stroke which is butterfly.


The course will cover the following

  • Freestyle drills and skills to improve efficiency and effectiveness of the stroke and to be able to hold the proper technique for a prolonged distance.
  • Backstroke drills and skills to improve efficiency and effectiveness of the stroke and to be able to hold the proper technique for a prolonged distance.
  • Breastroke, connecting both arm and leg movement to bring together a complete stroke.


The main aim of the Octopus group is to develop basic technique in all four strokes. Children will acquire a proper understanding of how the body reacts when placed in different positions in the water. Learning dives and different jumps, also adds a fun aspect to the lesson as well gives the child a chance to overcome any fears of doing so. The next step forward once all skills are developed is to move up to the Seal Level.
