OUR CLASSES

In The Deep empowers kids to flourish in the water, by teaching them how to swim.

With our world-class program and structured, thorough approach to teaching, we break down a complex skill into an easier-to-grasp, personal experience.

Our classes have been carefully designed to meet the strengths and weaknesses each child uniquely faces in their swimming journey.

We slow things down so it’s easier to grasp and master the skill. We're not one to teach everything overwhelmingly all at once. Hello, recipe for a stressed and fearful little learner right there!

Instead, we take a relaxed and safe approach, thinking about the long-term impacts of teaching kids to swim, how we can best set them up to build confidence and achieve, rather than rushing them through what is a complex skill to learn.

We do this with our proven progressions. Our method of skills-building in smaller steps, helps kids focus on getting good, one skill at a time. It creates lots of milestones where we can celebrate a win with a beautiful ribbon.

Progressions help to relieve the overwhelm of learning to swim. When your child has mastered a progression, they're ready to move onto the next challenge and further develop their abilities.

With lots of fun and courage-building along the way, we reveal the wonders of being in the water, gently guiding kids to become relaxed, stress-free swimmers.

BABIES

Our aim for all of our Squirts classes is to develop confident parents resulting in confident, relaxed children.

And all of this with a sense of fun and adventure as we navigate all that's involved in learning how to swim safely.

LEARN TO SWIM

Learning to swim.

Learning to float and relax in the water is key to gaining the confidence kids need when learning to swim.

At In The Deep our Learn to Swim program is purposefully designed to slow down the process of learning a complex skill, so that children find joy, rather than fear in the water.

YOU’LL FIND IN OUR TAILS CLASSES WE:

Avoid the use of floatation devices. These devices remove the beauty and sensation of the water from the learn to swim experience and hinder your child's progress.

We'll teach children how to swim before learning competitive strokes. You won't see kids do over arms until they can swim the length of our 25 metre pool. Over arms causes us to go under water and is unsafe for young children learning how to swim.

All teach the same thing. Consistency and repetition is key when learning a new skill, so all of our teachers are trained in and follow the same program.

Focus on quality technique and skills. We take our time to get things right for amazing long term results.

We'll teach and encourage your child in:

  1. Adding horizontal rotation to their body position. For freestyle breathing, this is the key foundational skill in mastering freestyle swimming.
