Our Swimming lessons for children!
We provide swimming lessons for children as a result of our passion for teaching and our deep respect for the water. Our swimming lessons incorporate traditional teaching techniques, which we have adapted to become more fun and interesting, encouraging water confidence in our swimmers.
It is our belief that every swimmer matters and we understand that everyone we teach is unique – so class numbers are kept low, enabling everyone to receive the utmost attention. We tailor our swimming lessons for children methods to suit each individual.
Make A Splash is an ASA Swim School and we follow their National Plan for Teaching Swimming (NPTS). This is a programme the ASA has developed to take children through from their first splash to full competence in the water. The plan teaches your child using fun and games so they enjoy learning to swim! Your child will go through different classes (based around the stages in the plan) where they will learn basic skills – such as how to enter and exit the water safely – through to more advanced techniques – such as how breathe in the water and perform different strokes. Your child can be rewarded for their achievement at each stage with the ASA’s ‘National Plan Awards.’ They can buy certificates and badges to track their progress and motivate them onto the next level.
Where do our swimming lessons for children take place?
We offer swimming lessons for children in Solihull & Birmingham of a broad range of activities including: Swimming, Baby Swimming, Synchronised Swimming, Lifesaving, and Water Yoga. Swimming Lessons for children take place on most days of the week and we are a growing swim school with new lessons being created – watch this space!
Swimming lessons for children the safe way!
As you might expect, this whole process is much easier if you start early. As well as for safety reasons, swimming lessons for children can encourage a healthy lifestyle, discipline and good behaviour; not forgetting, they’re lots of fun!
To ensure what they learn is delivered in a safe environment and doesn’t move too quickly, Make A Splash Swim School lessons for children must be a little different to adult classes. Working together with schools, clubs and coaches, the ASA has put together a ten-step path called the National Plan for Teaching Swimming (NPTS) which we follow.
This safe and trusted programme includes:
- How to get in and out of the water
- Using floats or armbands
- Basic motor skills such as body rotation or kicking
- Treading water
- Breathing in the water
Once the basics are covered, children can begin proving themselves, which does wonders for their self-esteem. By stage 5 they will be able to swim 10m in any stroke, and by stage 7, they should be comfortable covering 100m. In more advanced stages, they can be taught diving, aquatics or even lifesaving techniques, all delivered by our qualified instructors.
What swimming lessons for children means to us
Fun and safe swimming lessons for children is our main aim. Our team have all been hand selected for what they can bring and add to Make A Splash and are all passionate about swimming and aquatics… But we wouldn’t be very nice or caring people if we forgot about adults now, would we? So – of course we offer adult swimming lessons too – within the same safe and innovative environment with our professional and talented team. We want every swimmer’s time with us to be fun and informative and believe that creating a friendly atmosphere will help with learning how to swim and gain essential water skills.
Who We Are
All of us truly strive for Make A Splash to be a reponsible and ethical swim school which is committed to the impact we make through our swimming lessons for children and the environment. We know this might make us sound like we’re trying out for the ‘Miss World’ competition – but it’s what we believe in. As a result, we are all fully CRB checked, use fair-trade and organic products as much we can and have even made sure that our printed uniforms are made from 100% organic cotton! Our Make A Splash swimming lessons for children courses form the latter stage of our overall swimming journey – with younger swimmers making a seamless progression from Happy Aqua Babies.
Our swimming lessons for children cater for all abilities and we welcome everyone to join us and Make A Splash!
