ASSESMENTS

SCHOOL AGE CHILDREN

Our classes for school age children are grouped by ability, therefore we need to assess each child in order to place them in the best possible class.

Assessments are scheduled regularly throughout the term and are free of charge.  Assessments allow the parent and child the opportunity to visit our swim school and see it in action without any obligation.  During this time you are able to meet us and we can discuss your child's individual swimming requirements.

After the assessment we will be able to recommend the best possible class for your child. 

Please contact us in order to arrange your assessment.  We will get back to you as soon as possible.

BABIES AND PRE-SCHOOL AGE CHILDREN

There is no requirement to undergo an assessment for babies or pre-school age children. 

We offer a free trial lesson so that you are able to get to know us.  This trial lesson can be held on any day to suit you.

If you would like to enquire about baby or pre-school age classes please get in contact and we will be happy to arrange your free trial lesson.
