Swimming as a hobby
Cetus also offers non-competitive alternatives for children who want to continue swimming. These include hobby swimming groups, after school clubs and summer swim camps. Regular swimming helps a child or youth develop not just in the pool, but also socially and emotionally. Swimming is great aerobic exercise and strong swimmers are less at risk in an open water environment.
Hobby Swim Group
To participate, a child must have successfully have completed Children's Stroke Technique or Vesiralli 4 (Dolphin pin) or, alternatively, demonstrate the ability to swim a distance of 200 meters and mastery of the basics of the four strokes.
Joining CetusMix is only possible at the recommendation of an (Vesiralli) instructor. CetusMix is an ideal choice for keen swimmers who want to train twice per week once they've completed the Vesiralli 3-4.
WAU After School Clubs
The clubs meet at the Espoonlahti, Leppävaara and Keski-Espoo pools. The clubs are offered at no cost to the participants. For safety reasons the number of participants is limited and the clubs require registration in advance.
