Learn to Swim Programs for kids 4 – 18 years of age
We offer a variety of programs for kids of all ages based on age, ability and goals. We can give your child the skills to move into competitive swimming or they can choose just to swim for fun and fitness.
~ Wavemakers 3- 6 year olds
These programs are available and registered through Saanich Commonwealth Pool Recreational programs. We provide our trained coaches. Swimmers will develop advanced levels of endurance, kicking, body, hand and breath control. Your child should be able to submerge their head underwater, perform a basic front glide and be in the pool without parent's help.
From January 11, 2013, Island Swimming is pleased to announce that Wavemakers will also be available at and registered through Juan De Fuca and Seaparc recreation centers.
~ Island Swim Skills 6-11 year olds
These dynamic programs offer a fun introduction to competitive swimming. Your child will learn to be a strong swimmer in a fun, encouraging environment. Can your child retrieve an underwater toy, flutter kick on their back, and swim for 3 metres? If you are unsure of your child’s skills, contact us for a free assessment.
~ Youth (12 and over)
This program is a great start for kids 12 and over who want to become stronger swimmers or just swim for fun and fitness. Teens can choose to just have fun and keep fit or develop their skills and transition into a full competitive training group.
Recognition and Skill Testing
All our Island Swim Skill swimmers receive progress reports that highlight their achievements and allow mom and dad to follow their progress. We also offer the iRace Series swim meets where your child can show off their skills, win prizes and have a ton of fun.
