FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
When is the best time to start swimming lessons?
There is no better time to start swimming than the present time! At SaltWater Swim School, we have a variety of levels to specifically cater for your child’s needs, as well as a great range of scheduling options to suit your busy family life.
When will my child go up a level, and how long does it take?
The students are continuously assessed by their instructors and office staff. Every child is unique, learning different skills at different rates. Some may learn side breathing quickly, but may take a while to learn breaststroke etc.
Should you ever have any queries or concerns regarding your child’s progression, please feel free to discuss it with the coordinator on duty.
Are your instructors qualified?
Yes they are. All instructors have completed either an AustSwim or Swim Australia qualification. Many have also completed further specialist qualifications, including toddler classes, special needs classes, adult classes, and competitive stroke coaching.
All staff also hold current Working with Children checks and current CPR and Resuscitation qualifications.
What can I do to assist my child's swimming progress?
Parents are encouraged to praise specific efforts that your child has made (from the viewing area or within the class, depending on your level), in order to assist their confidence. After class, be prepared with their towel and lots of smiles for a great swimming effort! If you are encouraging your child to practise at home or whilst in the bath, reinforce skills learnt within the existing lessons you are attending. Simple tasks such as making bath time fun or letting your independent swimmer explore the water are great activities to assist their aquatic development.
My child missed a class. Can they have a make-up lesson?
