400 Gold

400 Gold is the final stage in the 400 Gold Program

Max 8 pupils per class / Duration 45 minutes

400 Gold is the final class in the 400 Gold Program and graduating from this class is what all our swimmers have been striving for since they were first in our Glides or Kindergarten 2 classes.

During your child's swimming lessons in our 400 Gold level, we will continue to work on refining their technique in freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke. They will also be introduced to butterfly and turns, as well as improving their dive starts to be ready for the State Swim Teams program (our version of a squad training program) and competition.

In addition to swimming all the strokes, the 400 Gold swimming classes take a holistic approach to teaching your child the swimming "rules of the road", how to swim in larger groups, and how and why swimming can improve general health and fitness. Swimmers in our 400 Gold level are also invited to attend monthly time trials, called Super Swims, and to also represent their Swim School at the State Swim Interschool Swimming Carnival.

To graduate from this class and the State Swim 400 Gold Program, your child must demonstrate competent technique in all strokes and skills, as well as performing a 400 metre freestyle swim non-stop.

Once this is complete - congratulations! Not only will you have ensured that your child has learned to swim - but they will then be eligible to join our Teams program, State Swim’s training squad.
