Baby and toddler Courses

All our baby (10 weeks – 2 years) and toddler courses (2-4 years) takes place with a parent in the pool, where instructors  and parents cooperate to conduct the exercise with your child.

Waterproof swim diapers are mandatory in all our baby and toddler courses for kids under the age of 4. Not using a diaper may result in being refused to participate.

This rule has been introduced with regard to hygiene in the pool, as we unfortunately have experienced feces in the pool from babies/toddlers without the mandatory swim diaper. The pool must then be closed until the day after as treatment and shock-chlorination of such cases.

Imitation and independence are two characteristics that predominate in this age group. At this level, we will begin to “glide” in streamline, swim with the help of pool noodles, dive after dive toys and we’re going to jump! We still use songs and various toys.  The father or mother cooperates with the child.

2-3 years

The child begins to develop new skills and become more independent. The child begins to enjoy the water with more confidence, and they become very proud of themselves as they can do so much on their own. On this course we will practice floating, both on the stomach and on the back, in cooperation with the father or mother, this way we ensure that the child feels safe. We’re going to swim and glide in streamline. We should start to swim small distances with and without assistance. There will be an introduction to crawl technique and we will learn a little breathing technique. At this level our swimmers begin to learn lifesaving skills.

In this age group the child’s strength increases and they are much more stable. On this course, we continue to practice floating, both on the stomach and back, we rotate from stomach to back and swim in streamline. We work a bit more with kicking and improve the crawl- and breathing technique. We help your child to develop their balance and coordination so they may move smoothly and efficiently in the water.
