About the SwimEasy Way
Our aim is to make the process of learning to swim EASY, ENJOYABLE and EFFECTIVE
EASY – During the early stages, our swimming teachers deliver the lessons in the water in order to provide direct contact with the learner and help boost confidence at this critical stage of learning how to swim.
ENJOYABLE – All lessons are delivered in a relaxed and fun atmosphere, utilising water games where appropriate.
EFFECTIVE – The classes are kept small in order to assure the best attention of our swimming teachers, enhance the development of the correct skills and to produce safe and competent swimmers.
TEACHERS are recruited from a variety of backgrounds that include: current competitive swimmers, former competitive swimmers, school teachers and parents.
All SwimEasy lessons are delivered in accordance with our unique 'Passport' system.
When first joining the programme, each swimmer is given a Passport booklet, which they keep for the duration of their time with SwimEasy. This Passport guides the swimmer through all the different levels, outlining each stage of the swimming lessons pathway and all the skills necessary to accomplish, within each level and stage. The swimmers receive a small ‘smiley face’ sticker when they successfully master the various skills and a large ‘smiley face’ upon completion of each level.
Once a swimmer receives four large (or ‘maxi’) stickers, they are ready to progress to the next stage. These ordered in each level as Wall Skills, Kick Skills, Swim Skills and Body Skills.
Similar to our swim caps, stages are colour coded to ensure easy identification by the teachers and easy recognition by the swimmers. The early classes are coded white then, red, before moving to yellow, orange and finally green which is now the final level before graduating.
When all the available stickers have been obtained and placed in the Passport, the swimmer is ready to graduate into ‘club swimming’.
Our normal procedure is to graduate our students into a swimming clubs in their local areas.
