Project Description

Goldfish

Develop your baby’s confidence and mobility in the water with our Goldfish infant swimming lessons. Through activities and games, your baby will learn the basics of swimming and water safety.

Goldfish is our advanced baby class where we focus on extending the children’s breath control through blowing bubbles and submerging and their mobility skills through kicking and paddling. We encourage the children to be independent swimmers as much as possible so when they turn two they are able to move onto our Independent Turtle class.

What is a Goldfish?

  • Infant swimming lessons for babies aged between 1-2 years

  • Group classes of 4 to 6 with their parents in each and every lesson

  • Perfect bonding sessions between bub and Mum or Dad!

  • Comfortable having water on their face and body

What happens in a Goldfish baby class?

  • Plenty of fun melodies to make learning to swim exciting for you and your little one
  • Goldfish baby lessons are all about comfortably submerging, extending breath control, and learning to be independently mobile
  • Our expert instructors will work with you to get your little one kicking and reaching
  • Strengthening your baby’s mobility and buoyancy skills so they can kick, paddle and float
  • Your baby will learn how to independently float on their back with your help
By the time your baby turns 24 months, our aim to is to graduate them to our Turtle class where they will be able to advance their swimming abilities without a parent in the water. Throughout the Goldfish class, we encourage our students to be as independent as possible with their swimming.
