Class Information

Class sizes will include either four, five or six children per class depending on the swimming ability of the swimmers. Each child will follow an individualised programme within the group setting. Core Aquatics will inform you when your child(ren) are ready to move to the next stage. You will be provided with days and times that are available based on your child(ren)’s swimming ability. If the whole group has progressed at the same rate then the group will stay the same and continue to progress through the awards pathway together.
