NURSERY PROGRAM (AQUATOTS)

0 - 3 YEARS OLD

Nursery classes (or the Aquatot program) is one of the most rewarding experiences a parent and child can share. Aquatic experiences begin before a child is born, and we believe a child’s development in dealing with these experiences should continue from birth. Pool-based lessons commence when your child reaches 6 months, but for younger children we can offer a huge range of key skills to practice at home ensuring the aquatic transition is seamless for both child and parent.

 

You and your child will experience an aquatic program full of fun and parental bonding, whilst tackling underlying skill development and water confidence.

 

Classes are 30 mins long and consist of up to 8 students and are available Monday to Sunday mornings.

SQUAD

Menai Swim Academy offers a squad program that caters for swimmers of all abilities, be they competitive or just wanting to stay fit.

The program is IM based and aims to build on what the swimmers have learnt in our LTS program and to produce swimmers that have good technique as well as having endurance and stamina.

Swimmers in the program will be encouraged to attend multiple sessions and also become part of the Menai Swim Club to attend the monthly Friday race nights, as well as external meets.

Regardless of their ambition, all swimmers in the program will learn racing techniques that can be used either in the competitive swimming environment or just in their school swimming.

 

Squad time availability ranges from early mornings to late evenings.
