Initially your child will be invited for an assessment to determine their current swimming ability and aquatic skills. A place will be offered dependant on the assessed level, suitability to join a club environment and the availability of spaces. The length of a session depends on the assessed level and individual’s maturity. Progress is assessed regularly both by observation of stroke technique, aquatic skills and timed sessions.
