February Crash Course  

Tuesday 22nd, Wednesday 23rd & Thursday 24th February 2022


At the Aquatic Academy we see the full range, from the nervous or tearful, to the calm or fearless. And we know just how important it is that these first few lessons lay the best possible foundations. That’s how safe, confident, happy swimmers develop. So we offer something that not every swim school does—and it involves you having some fun in the pool too!

Adult and child lessons are about two things: gently introducing your child to the water, and teaching you how to be safe and have fun with each other. Our aim is to develop your child’s confidence, co-ordination, balance, water safety skills and swimming technique during the course of lessons.

The twenty five minute lessons include playing games, splashing and swimming, along with building the fundamental foundations to enable your child to join a Wave One group class.

We recommend the Adult and Child class if children are under five years old, haven’t had swimming lessons before, and are nervous about a new environment, new teacher, or joining a group. Our experience shows that this is a great introduction to swimming and the children progress to the Wave One group class confident and happy in the water.

We have all the questions

How many are in each adult and child class?

There are only four children and adults in each class.

What do the lessons involve?

Half an hour of playing games, splashing and swimming. The course follows the Swim Wales, Wave One outcomes. The teacher is in the water to give instructions and demonstrations for adults to support their children with developing water confidence and swimming technique. 

I’m not a great swimmer. Could I still join in?

Absolutely. The lessons are in shallow water and our teachers are in the pool too, supporting you every step of the way.

Does my child have to do the adult and child course?

If they are under five years old and haven’t had swimming lessons before then, yes, we would recommend they complete the course before moving on to Wave One group lessons. If you're not sure please contact us and we will help you find the best class for your child.
