Kids Swimming Lessons

Swimming is a great form of exercise and leisure activity for kids. The best way to help them learn to swim is through one-on-one swimming classes with a SDA professional instructor. 

Learning the swimming will aid in building a child's skills in a water environment. Not to mention, the application of learning in a private pool makes swimming classes relaxed for children. Therefore, it is highly beneficial to receive guidance from the Swim Development Australia Coaching Team that brings the swim school to the confines of a child's home, particularly in a family-owned pool.

Key Considerations on Swimming Lessons

Children in Sydney aged at least five years old are a perfect match for kids swimming lessons from SDAs' instructors. The custom program will broaden their  swimming skills and encourage baby steps towards swimming. Kids will have the privilege of raising questions that are answered based on the first-hand swimming experiences of their instructors.


Within the term or length of the custom program, each child can:

  • Learn swimming alongside safety awareness

  • Develop swimming skills for usage at the pool or the sea

  • Have great endurance to do a swimming lap

  • Make swimming a great individual skill

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons
  1. Individualized Attention: Instructors can focus exclusively on your child's strengths, weaknesses, and learning pace, leading to more effective and faster learning.

  2. Customized Lesson Plans: Lessons can be adapted to meet the specific needs and goals of your child, whether it's basic water safety, stroke improvement, or advanced techniques.

  3. Flexible Scheduling: Private lessons often offer more flexibility in scheduling compared to group classes, making it easier to fit into busy family schedules.

  4. Improved Confidence and Comfort: Personalized attention can help nervous or anxious swimmers become more comfortable and confident in the water.

  5. Enhanced Safety: With one-on-one supervision, the instructor can ensure your child’s safety at all times, minimizing risks and ensuring proper technique.

Structure of Private Swimming Lessons
  1. Assessment: Typically, lessons begin with an assessment of the child’s current swimming ability. This helps the instructor create a personalized lesson plan.

  2. Goal Setting: The instructor and parents (and sometimes the child) discuss specific goals, such as learning basic water safety, improving certain strokes, or preparing for competitive swimming.

  3. Progressive Learning: Lessons are designed to gradually build skills, starting from basic water comfort and safety, progressing to more advanced techniques as the child improves.

  4. Varied Activities: Lessons often include a mix of drills, games, and exercises to keep the child engaged and make learning fun.

  5. Feedback and Reinforcement: Instructors provide constant feedback and positive reinforcement, which helps children learn correct techniques and gain confidence.


Tips for Parents
  1. Regular Practice: Encourage regular practice outside of lessons to reinforce skills learned. This can be done during family swim times or extra practice sessions.

  2. Positive Reinforcement: Celebrate progress and milestones to keep your child motivated and excited about swimming.

  3. Patience and Support: Learning to swim is a gradual process. Be patient and supportive, especially if your child is initially fearful or struggles with certain skills.

  4. Safety Emphasis: Reinforce water safety rules and ensure your child understands the importance of safe swimming practices.

Private swimming lessons can be a valuable investment in your child’s safety, confidence, and enjoyment of the water. By selecting the right program and providing ongoing support, you can help your child develop essential swimming skills that will benefit them for life.
