Competitive Swim Training

The minimum entry requirement for competitive swim training is the completion of all Learn to Swim levels. The student technically masters correct Breaststroke and Freestyle with basic knowledge of Backstroke and Butterfly. It is highly recommended to attend a minimum of two training sessions per week. We encourage children to join all training sessions up to a maximum of five times per week to achieve best results.
