What Happens in a Kindergarten 2 Lesson?
In Kindergarten 2 swimmers will continue to learn our specially-developed under-arm stroke that they’ve learnt in Kindergarten 1, which prepares them for the full Freestyle stroke they’ll learn in the 400 Gold program. These lessons focus on swimmers having their face in the water more frequently, beginning to swim greater distances without floats and developing water safety skills to increase the chance of survival in the unlikely case of an accident.
What skills will toddlers learn?
- Under arm stroke
- Front and back floating
- Jumping into the pool without floats
What Merit Awards will toddlers receive?
- Push off the wall and swim 2m to the instructor without floats
- Swim 10m without floats
What happens when a toddler graduates Kindergarten 2?
Following swimmers turning 4 years old they will graduate to the Gildes class, the first class of our 400 Gold program. If your child has received all of their Kindergarten 2 Merits they will be fast-tracked to Torpedoes, the second class of the eight-stage 400 Gold program.
