Torpedoes

Torpedoes Swimming Classes for Kids

Torpedoes is the second stage in the 400 Gold program
Max 4 pupils per class / Duration 30 minutes

In the Torpedoes class, children continue to develop their freestyle and backstroke kick. Children progress into this class by achieving the Glides certificate or by graduating from our Kindergarten 2 classes.

What Happens in a Torpedoes Lesson?

The swimming lessons in our Torpedoes level form the main building blocks for teaching the freestyle stroke. Swimmers in these lessons will learn how to perform a freestyle (Torpedo) kick and will also develop their backstroke kick in preparation for the Marlins swimming class.

What Skills Will Swimmers Learn?

  • Develop breath control
  • Freestyle kick off the board
  • Back and front floating
  • Deep water safety skills

What Merit Awards Will Swimmers Receive?

  •  Freestyle (Torpedo) kick with board

What Happens When a Swimmer Graduates Torpedoes?

The "torpedo" kick is a very important fundamental skill  in learning freestyle, as the stronger the kick, the easier it will be for the child when arm stroking is introduced in our Marlins swimming level.
