Infant swimming starts from the age of three months to four years. The actual swimming and all the rest of the actively is proceeded with the patents in the water.

What the lessons are like at infant swimming and when do we start the fly stoke?
The first month of the course is all about adapting, the babies adapt to their instructor to the pool, the atmosphere, the games and the songs. After about a month comes the stage of diving – or to be more accurate – putting the children’s faces in the water. Once the adaptation period is over we continue to work on mussel strengthening, coordination, body weight balance, breathing and the children’s self confidence.
The whole lesson is accompanied by songs and games and endless love.
Up to the age of two years (more or less) we prepare the child to the real stage – the swimming stage. We start by practicing drawing big circles with our hands and kicking with our feet. The kids success in swimming 1-5 M underwater without having to lift their head above the surface. Around the age of three children work with fins on their feet and work very hard to strengthen their shoulders in order to be able to lift their head above water surface and breath.
From the age of three to four years the children learn to swim full breast – stroke (hands and legs), just like we adults swim.
About fly-stoke, children who attend their swimming lessons continuously once a week – are able to swim all four strokes!!! Amazing isn’t it?!
