In swimming schools child will practice elementary skills in swimming. We teach also the important pre-skills for swimming such as floating, gliding, and jumping in to the pool. When a child completes swimming school he/she will get a diploma and a FSL’s (Finnish Swimming Teaching and Lifesaving Federation) badge accounting to the skills achieved. The teaching takes place mainly in the teaching pool but as the skills develop we will spend more time in the deep pool. Our instructors are educated by FSL. We recommend the use of swimming goggles for the participants.
