GOswim for Australian Kids of All Ages
Swimming lessons can begin from as young as 6 months of age, focusing on water familiarisation and floating. Children from a young age should learn how to float or get to the edge of a pool should they ever fall in.
Swimming Australia and Belgravia Leisure have partnered to develop and deliver a new and effective swimming and water safety program focusing on contemporary experiential and activity-based learning, encouraging and supporting students to explore pathways into competitive and recreational lap swimming.
Implementation of this high-quality, activity-based educational program is designed to better integrate student learning outcomes into real-world settings, offering students opportunity to:
- Gain maximum participation and practice time in activities that encourage, mentor and support the learning process where they are active for most of the lesson
- Be empowered to think, discuss and decide through experiential based learning where mentoring, guidance and challenge encourages them to use and enhance their knowledge, skill and understanding
- Learn and understand essential components of personal survival and water safety elements while concurrently in addition to development of establishing strong and effective swimming technique
- Be supported by professional, qualified teachers as they progress the through the curriculum.
The Learn to swim journey is powered by innovative technology: Active World. It is designed to improve communication and interaction between swim school, parent and swimmer.
Together our goal is to put the fun back into learning to swim and keep swimmers loving our sport for longer.
