Competitive Swim Training

The minimum standard for competitive swim training is Proficiency 3 (Learn To Swim). 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.
