Carlile Swimming has been teaching kids to swim well for 65 years and we’re proud to be offering our School Swimming Program to local school children. Through this program, Carlile Swimming has been able to pass on the gift of swimming to thousands of children who might not otherwise have had the opportunity to attend lessons.
Our Schools Swimming Program is designed to help children feel safer in the water, develop their swimming ability and learn important swimming skills and techniques.
At Carlile, we understand that not all school children can swim, or they might only have limited swimming ability. We also realise that some kids are excellent swimmers who need coaching on correct stroke technique. So, with that mind, this program caters to all ages and abilities, from beginners learning water confidence, right through to squad swimmers learning competitive strokes and turns.
Additionally, every 45-minute lesson includes 10 minutes of water safety training, which further instills the importance of being safer around the water.
Some of the improvements we have seen in children who attend our School Swimming Program include:
- Increased confidence in and around the water
- Understanding the importance of water safety skills
- Improvement in swimming technique
- Greater mastery of strokes and turns
- A general improvement in all round swimming ability
Our program is available every school term between 12:00pm and 3:00 pm on weekdays.
Our highly qualified teachers are present with the kids at all times and are CPR qualified and have Working with Children Checks. For more information on our popular School Swimming Program, please contact one of the following schools.
