STAGES OF LEARNING
From beginner to expert
Our ISA swimming programs set us apart from most other Swim Schools in the UK because at the core of every class is our sole focus on teaching your little one to be a FUNTASTIC, safe, confident and independent swimmer. We offer lessons from just 2 months old onwards!
We have combined more than 13 years of industry experience, from several different countries, with the best programs out there to create a method that sets the industry standard for swimming lessons, teaching a comprehensive set of critical water skills to all.
We love what we do and we haven’t met a single student we couldn’t teach. All abilities are welcome (Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy…) – we leave no student behind!
THE BASIC PROGRAMS
At ISA our basic programs are designed to deliver the necessary skills of safety and independence to swimmers as well as help parents understand how to conduct their child in the water for a promising swimming future. This program introduces floating, the most important to step to swimming unaided and progresses onto propulsion, the physical aspect of kicking to move themselves.
The basic programmes are not limited to teaching children to float, the parent and baby course is important for parents who want to prepare their children to swim by having parents understand correct positioning in the water as well as provide useful exercises to have some fun with their children in water.
THE INTERMEDIATE PROGRAMS
The intermediate programs are for confident dolphins who have mastered the basic program and are ready to delve into the more technical side of swimming. Body position, introduction to arm movement and swimming to different depths are all skills learned in the intermediate programs and prove to be fun amongst children.
Children explore a more physically demanding side of swimming in the intermediate programme which is great as it relates to all sports and they become accustomed to further distances.
THE ADVANCED PROGRAMS
From about 4 years old , once your child has gone through the Basic and Intermediate Programs and the swimmer can demonstrate the SWIM-FLOAT-SWIM efficiently is time to SWIM LIKE AN OLYMPIC SWIMMER. In this course your child will learn all the principle swimming strokes: Front Crawl, Backstroke, Breastroke and Butterfly through 5 different enjoyable swimming levels.
We introduce them to Snorkelling and they love it! as they can use the mask and the tube during their holidays time.
Every term we celebrate our swimmers's achievements with medals and awards.
A real water confident child is the one who is not goggle's dependent that's why our programs encourage them to swim with and without goggles, swimming cap and even with street clothes to make sure they will be safe in any swimming pool around the world!
