Elite Swimming Program

Water babies (6 months – 36 months)

Elite Sports are now offering swimming lessons for babies, toddlers and young child. Becoming a water baby is a magical development process through many stages, each one building on confidence and gentle progression. Our program based on play, word association, popular nursery rhymes and lots of smiles encourages babies to become confident, relaxed and able to help themselves in water. Many parents also report excellent sleeps on the day of their lesson!

Learning one of life's most important skills can now begin earlier than you think. You may not realise but babies have a natural response in and under the water using the gag reflex to allow breath holding when submerged. This reflex is at its strongest in small babies, meaning your child can now learn to swim as early as 6 months old. It has been found that the sooner your baby is introduced to water after birth the more confident they are around water and the easier it is for them to develop swimming skills later on.

Learn to Swim

Our Stages system places students on a journey towards complete proficiency in all strokes (e.g. freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, side stroke, inverted breaststroke) and swimming skills (treading water, sculling, floating, gliding, diving etc). These lessons can be tailored to suit very young children up to adults.

There are 5 levels in our Learn to Swim:

  1. Turtle
  2. Penguin
  3. Starfish
  4. Nemo
  5. Dolphin
