Private Swimming Lessons

Private lessons will ensure classes are tailored to your child’s specific needs and that 100% commitment will be given to further develop their skills, techniques and abilities in the water. We offer private lessons as an additional class to your child’s regular swimming classes at Southern Swim School. Private lessons will be taught by quality instructors and will provide value for money in achieving best outcomes for your child’s development.

Stroke and Skill Specific Classes

Southern Swim School endeavour to assist all children who are having difficulties in certain areas of their swimming development. Breaststroke and Butterfly techniques can often be difficult and complex to learn and become technically competent. Instead of having our swimmers development come to a halt , we offer these additional classes to help push your swimmer along as these skills are  isolated and practised repeatedly.

Adult Learn to Swim

It is never too late to Learn how to Swim! Learning to Swim as an adult is a huge accomplishment and an extremely rewarding experience, however at Southern Swim School we are aware that it can also be an extremely confronting challenge.

The Southern Swim School adult private lessons will be taught by experienced, qualified and passionate staff in a welcoming, relaxed and friendly environment. All fundamental swimming skills will be taught in a calm and progressive way to meet the needs of even the most nervous adult swimmers. We guarantee results with consistency and huge smiles along the way!

Transition classes

The Aquatic Industry guidelines state that it is best practice for a child to be supported 1:1 in the water until a minimum age of 30 months.
As our baby and toddler program is so strong, we have many young children who are swimming independently before this age. We have created a Transition Class for swimmers between the age of 2 years – 2 years 6 months who have achieved the skills of our Starfish class. For these swimmers, we may look to move them into a Transition Class, which will be a 15 minute private class, until they turn 2 years and 6 months old.
To meet the Transition Class criteria, your child requires the following skills:
  • Swimmer will be able to swim 3-4 metres completely independently at all times throughout lessons. Examples are: from teaching platform and back to teaching platform and from the wall and back to the wall. This distance will be with parents/ teacher stepped back the minimum 3 metre distance.
  • Swimmer will be able to float independently and happily on their backs
  • Swimmer will be able to fall into the pool, turn around and recover back to the wall independently and climb out
  • Swimmer will show signs of maturity, and the ability to listen to instructions and wait.
