Intermediate Level 01 "Swim like a Dolphin"
Main Outcomes - Intro to ISA Key Sequence 2: Kick-Float-Kick (Guided), diving and jumps, intro to underwater skills.
Having mastered the ISA’s Key Sequence 1 “Rollback-and-Float” on the Beginner level, your child is improving their technique of kicking their legs in order to move through the water. They then combine swimming on their front with turning to float when they need to rest and breathe. Your child will begin to put these skills together with the instructor’s guidance, moving into ISA’s Key Sequence 2: ‘Kick-Float-Kick’ (Guided).
What your child will learn
Your child will work on their leg kicking action to build strength and independence.
Your child will begin to swim longer distances with their Instructor’s guidance.
Your child will love learning how to have fun through diving and jumps respecting the safety skills.
Becoming an independent swimmer
As your child grows in age, confidence and ability they will also be introduced to fun activities such as jumping in and coming up to float (Rollback-and-Float), swimming underwater, and diving for sinkers. At the end of this stage your little dolphin will be super confident, ready to move onto the next level and start swimming like a shark!
We welcome parents in
We do encourage parents to get into the water with us at least once before going on holiday or taking your child swimming outside of lessons so that you can be taught the best way to support your child’s learning in the water.
We don't leave anyone behind
While our programme is suitable for all ages and abilities, lessons will progress at a pace suitable for each individual. Lessons may look slightly different as we cater to your child’s developmental age and needs. Instructors continue to work with breath control and body alignment, whilst encouraging your child to swim with their face down in the water.
How long it will take for my child to learn?
How quickly your child moves through the levels depends on your child’s developmental age and abilities. Each individual will progress at their own rate.
Babies up to 12 months
Toddlers up to 3 year old
Children aged 3 years +
*Please note: this is an approximation based on regular attendance of one short 10-minute lesson per week, depending on the child and your consistency in attendance. You can tailor your child’s lesson length following a 10-minute slot increment charge; e.g. 10 minutes, 20 minutes, 30 minutes etc. In a 20 or 30 minute 1:1 ISA lesson, there is more time for building up a relationship with the instructor, play and accelerated learning.
