Our Platypus class commences the journey for your child, of learning swimming strokes. We start with freestyle in this level, with children practicing their freestyle arms and starting to learn the concept of side breathing. This level also develops your child’s skills on their back through sculling and kicking which form the very basic skills for backstroke. Water safety elements become more advanced with children learning to tread water and roll onto their back and perform more advanced safety falls. By the time your child is ready to move out of this class, they will be swimming basic freestyle independently, and be comfortable while floating on their back.
