Lessons run for an hour each and are being offered in two different classes:

Beginner Swimmers: This offers water familiarisation including safe entry to water, head submergence, front floating, and opening eyes underwater. This is for Stage 1 swimmers (4yrs and above), with a maximum of two per class.
