Swim Classes (4+ years)
In swim classes children practice basic swimming skills: floating, gliding, swimming under water, elementary swimming and jumping into the pool. Lessons are primarily held in the children's pool where the water is 26-28°C and 0-0.9 meters deep. As the children's skills develop, the group will spend more and more time in the big pool. Upon completion of the class, the children will receive a diploma, which includes a list of the skills they have learned and the instructor's recommendation for their next class. We recommend the use of goggles (and learning how to use them before the class begins).
Our instructors are trained and certified by the Finnish Swimming Teaching and Lifesaving Federation.
