The Otter 1 and Otter 2 levels are an introduction to Freestyle and Backstroke drills. We will build on the foundations taught in our Clownfish levels to ensure children acquire the essential skills needed to be water safe in any aquatic environment. Our structured program will ensure children continue to learn through positive reinforcement as each new skill is introduced. The program works on building solid swimming foundations ensuring that when children move from these levels they are confident in freestyle and backstroke with the kick efficiency and body position as the solid basis for all strokes.
As part of our learn to swim program we run water safety weeks every eight weeks. This week compliments our Learn to Swim program and children are expected to exit this level confidently being able to tread water.
Otter 1 – maximum 5 children per class
Otter 2 – maximum 5 children per class
