What happens in a Crab swimming class?
Plenty of fun melodies to make learning to swim exciting for your child
Breath control and submersion development
Our expert instructors will work with your child to teach them kicking techniques and self-propulsion through the water with their eyes down
Crab child lessons are all about developing mobility and buoyancy skills through independent floating, paddling and kicking
Your child will learn how to enter the water and submerge independently, swim unassisted to a teacher for 5-7 metres, and comfortably kick and float on their back with little support. By the time your child is ready to move up to the Octopus class, they will be ready to learn how to swim basic freestyle. Throughout the Crab class we practice lots of independent swimming to ensure your child is getting the most out of each lesson.
