Torpedoes

Torpedoes is the second stage in the 400 Gold Program

Max 4 pupils per class / Duration 30 minutes

Learning to swim properly is what excites a lot of young swimmers - and this swimming class is where they get to begin to learn to swim freestyle! Children progress into this class by achieving our Glides certificate or by graduating from our Kindergarten 2 classes.

The swimming lessons in our Torpedoes level form the main building blocks for the teaching of traditional freestyle. Swimmers in these lessons will learn how to perform a “torpedo” (freestyle kick) and will also develop their backstroke kick in preparation for the Marlins swimming class. The "torpedo" kick is a very important fundamental in learning freestyle, as the stronger the kick, the easier it will be for the child when arm stroking is introduced in our Marlins swimming level.
