Baby Classes

What a fabulous way to spend quality time with your precious baby as well as social interaction with tots of similar age.  At Leigh’s Swimming Academy, we believe that all milestones achieved on land (rolling, sitting, pulling up, crawling, walking and running) can and must be mirrored in the water.

In this programme our aim is to guide Mum, Dad or Caregiver through the do’s and don’ts of teaching your little one to be safe in and around the pool while learning the love of water. This is taught in a fun and interactive sing along class.

Groups are kept to a minimum of 8 babes per class!

Classes are 30 minutes each:
R700 per month (1 class per week)
R1100 per month (2 classes per week)

Certificate levels: Tadpole and Frog

Stroke Correction

Our stroke correction classes start from as young as 4 years old. As long as the child is 100% waterborne, we move onto teaching and correcting the four strokes.

Each week is dedicated to one stroke and furthermore we spend time practicing starts, turns and finishes as well as tumble turns and diving. We believe that each stroke should be broken down using various FUNctional drills and then pieced together again.

These 20 minute sessions with a maximum of 4 children in each class bring huge amounts of fun to learning the formal swimming strokes while having a good physical work out. These sessions are a fantastic grounding for children who would like to join their primary school swimming team as well as for those that just enjoy the water and would like to further their swimming ability.

Groups are made of up 4 children per class!

Classes are 20 minutes each:
R600 per month (1 class per week)
R950 per month (2 classes per week)

Certificate levels: Seal, Baby DolphinAdult Dolphin, Marlin and Shark
