Advanced

Our Advanced course is designed for people who have begun to develop coordinated breathing and stroke techniques.

This course will help to further build on their existing front stroke skills by teaching other front stroke techniques, such as breast stroke and will also teach children the basics of how to swim on their backs and introduce arms.

Safety wise, they will learn how to independently do more complex routines such as floating, sculling, bike legs, doing simple water rescues.

This class is 30 minutes long and at 1:6 = 1 Austswim or Royal Life Saving teacher to 6 Students ratio;
This is to allow each child to get the most out of the class, this class will be swimming in lanes and laps adjusting and fine tuning stroke and skills so that they can move onto Squad training.

This is our last stage before we refer students onto the Beresfield Barracudas

We ask that all swimmers observe sun safety protocols by ensuring they are appropriately clothed and sun cream is applied before entering the pool. Ideal clothing consists of rash shirt and swimmers. Hair should be tied back and any jewellery is removed. Hair cap and goggles can be used, but are not necessary in most cases.

Whilst some classes may involve using flotation devices such as noodles or kickboards, permanent flotation devices (e.g. arm floats) are not allowed, as they can both hinder movement and provide a false sense of security to the student.

Once complete, the Joy of Water team will sit down with you and discuss what your options are, custom classes, Swimming Squad etc.
