Private Swimming Lessons for Kids Sydney

For complete non-swimmers, to children able to swim unaided and learning freestyle and basic backstroke.
We have experienced instructors all over Sydney including North Shore, Northern Beaches, Inner West, Eastern Suburbs, Sydney CBD, Sutherland Shire & St George

Private learn-to-swim classes encourage independence in the water whilst ensuring kids are developing a love of swimming and the aquatic environment.

Kids Swimming Lessons Program:

We work on the fundamental skills required for swimming, including:

  • Developing a strong and effective kick
  • Paddling and sculling actions
  • Breath control for younger swimmers, then learning to blow bubbles whilst swimming
  • Proprioception and mobility in the water
  • Correct streamlined body position in the water, preparing children for freestyle strokes
  • Floating
  • Teaching children water safety in the home pool environment
  • Developing confidence and comfort in the water

Our swimming instructors use toys and aids such as noodles and kickboards to assist kids in gaining skills in swimming strokes.
Incorporating swimming games and songs, where suitable, in classes keeps things fun.

We also specialise in working with children who are fearful of developing their comfort and confidence in the water.
All our activities teach children swimming skills and help them establish correct swimming motor patterns.

We tailor classes to the individual needs of each child. The lesson structure is your choice and may involve the child spending one on one time with the instructor – we usually recommend between 15-30 minutes per child with their teacher.

You may also include up to 4 children in a 30-minute class and split the cost of the lesson. However, we do find the more time each child has with an instructor, the more quickly they progress.
