OceanFit’s open water swim school gives your child an opportunity to build confidence in the open water environment, learn skills to keep safe and make smart decisions in unfamiliar water, and develop a love for open water swimming.
The 4-lesson intensive school holiday program for 5-10 year olds is designed to enhance swimming skills learnt in traditional pool swimming lessons by introducing the unfamiliarity and unpredictability of the open water environment.
Each lesson is one hour, with outcomes focused on open water familiarisation, comfort in cooler, darker, deeper, ‘scarier’ water, and self rescue from an unintentional fall into water.
In collaboration with the Pilot Station – Boating Safety Education Centre, there will also be water craft, boating and lifejacket learning components for an all-round education.
This summer, invest in your child’s aquatic future with open water swimming lessons.
