Learn to Swim


Stages 8-10
These stages are for the more competent swimmers. They are discipline-specific and build on the swimming skills learned in Stages 1-7. Key areas of focus are building sport specific (diving, water polo or synchonorised swimming etc) skills and extending the skills and abilities of young swimmers and introducing Rookie Lifesaving and snorkelling. They have been developed with the grass roots programmes of the individual sports so are great if your child wants to take up competitive swimming, water polo, synchro, or diving.
