Aquamad Swim School

Parent and Toddler

8 months – 3 years

This is a fun and effective program for introducing parents with babies or very young children to the exciting world of aquatics. It incorporates water safety, free movement, structured play, exercise to songs and guidance in physical and educational development..

Learn to Swim

Through fun and enjoyment we develop confident and competent swimmers. Being safe in the water is our number one priority. We teach a child to swim the four strokes (Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Butterfly) as well swimming skills and water safety whereby they will be confident to do any water sport. Swimmers work through a progressive, incentive based 11 level programme.

Stroke Correction

Based on international FINA rules, we analyse a swimmers stroke. We focus on body position, correct mechanics, distance per stroke and timing among many other factors, working towards an efficient stroke technique.

Private Lessons

With private swimming lessons, the swimmer will receive one-on-one personalised attention. These lessons are tailored to the swimmers needs and will help them become better swimmers regardless of their skill level.

Survival Swimming

In survival swimming i teach infants, toddlers and children up to 6 years old how to swim, as well as the most efficient and effective way to survive an accident or panic situation in the water.

The motor skills learnt become an automated response when finding themselves unexpectedly in the water, panicked, tired or when they cannot get to safety in a body of water. They learn, in just a matter of weeks, to become independent problem solvers. Not reliant on another person or floating device for safety.
We work at the child’s pace using a variety of methods, combining  knowledge, expertise and over 19 years of swimming teaching experience.

Initial lessons are conducted on an individual basis for 10 minutes, ideally 3-4 times a week. A commitment to 24 lessons is necessary.

Generally in just a matter of weeks, a child will achieve this instinctive self rescue technique. On average, after 24 lessons a child is generally ready for their ‘Safety Test”. This is where they perform self rescue skills unaided and while fully clothed. Children older than 1 year old are taught to swim-float-swim, firstly the width, and then the length, of the pool.

Happy Swimmers

since 1999

My daughter, Caiside (7 years old), joined Aquamad Swimming School in November 2016. Tori and Jose came highly recommended and Caiside needed a coach to take her to the next level.

Caiside loved going for lessons and her confidence as a swimmer grew substantially.

She was enrolled for three lessons a week and ended last season as a shark. In my view this is completely due to Tori and Jose’s excellent coaching skills.

Aquamad Swimming School is run very efficient and Caiside missed no lessons due to cold weather. The pool is heated and in typical Howick weather (overcast and often chilly) this meant happy kids all round.
