Why Kick Start?
While Kick Start is not a mandatory program, we do strongly recommend it, especially if it’s a swimmer’s first time having lessons. We have seen many new swimmers benefit from the program as it offers swimmers:
For children who have never been around water before, the Kickstart program gives a strong introduction to the aquatic environment that can help your child become confident with the basics of water safety quicker and retain that information better.
Swimming twice per week can help your child learn to be a better student. Attending regular swimming lessons can help your child build a stronger relationship with their instructor, which can set the tone of not just their progression through our program, but also through their schooling.
Intensive learning has proven benefits which is why repetition and revision of skills is a fundamental part of the State Swim program. By swimming twice per week, your child has double the opportunity to practice.
Water safety – it’s important year-round
Swimming skills are made in the winter! It’s false that swimming lessons are more important for children in summer – they’re important all year round. By swimming twice per week no matter the season, your child will become a stronger, safer swimmer.
