Airfield Kids

At Airfield Swim Academy we follow the Learn to Swim programme for 5-15 year olds. Designed to empower and inspire children to challenge themselves on their own personal journey of learning to swim. The curriculum encompasses a range of teaching methodologies with a real focus on repetitive, accurate and quality practice with elements of guided discovery. The programme is delivered through structured play, ensuring the lessons are well planned with clear learning outcomes whilst engaging children in fun and relevant activities.

Aqua Skills Level 1 – 2

In Aqua Skills Level 1 and Level 2 a number of Core Aquatic Skills are introduced, reinforced and consolidated, whilst developing water confidence. These skills, which are made up of Entries and Exits, Submersion and Aquatic Breathing, Rotation, Floatation, Streamlining, Sculling, Movement and Propulsion and Co-ordination and Balance, will “waterproof” children and lay the foundation for the development of stroke technique.

Aqua Strokes Level 3 – 7

These later stages will build on the Core Aquatic Skills of the first two levels, encouraging the development of body position, leg action, arm action, breathing and timing of all four competitive strokes. The short and quality practices encouraged in these levels will develop efficient swimmers and, as a result, individuals who will understand the aquatic environment and be equipped to maintain their own safety for longer.
