ISA INTERMEDIATE PROGRAMS
Children must complete THE BASIC PROGRAM (age depending) in order to participate in our Intermediate Programs. If you are unsure of your child’s current swimming level, please get in touch to book an assessment session.
SWIM LIKE A DOLPHIN
(from 7 months to about 2,5 years old)
*Older children and special needs swimmers may be attending this level
“Swim like a dolphin” is the stage for children who have already mastered the turn and float skills and are confident in the water. During this program stronger techniques are implemented. Skills such as jumping, swimming under water and an introduction to diving are our focus, teaching our dolphins how the water can be a safe place to have fun!
Now is the perfect time to increase the swimming distance, develop a strong kick so that when a child progresses to the “Swim like a Shark” program where the lesson time is longer they are prepared for the activity as well as understand what is required of them.

SWIM LIKE A SHARK
(from around 2,5 years old)
“Swim like a shark” focuses on the physical techniques of swimming for children. Activities focus on body alignment, stronger kicking and introduces the arm action. This program is popular due to the freedom it allows them. They can swim further distances, control their own breathing using the swim-float-swim sequence, dive to the bottom for sinkers and swim with flippers, which allows them to feel the speed and power they will one day garner on their own.
This program runs for 20 minutes in a 2-to-1 setting or 30 minutes in a 3-to-1 setting.
At ISA we recognise each child is special; different skill sets, different learning styles and different personalities, but we expect all children of all abilities to be able to complete this course. Our methodology works for everyone, including children with Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, as well as other disabilities or special requirements.
