Kids’ Swimming Lessons
Children can be introduced to water polo in their swimming lessons. Our Learn to Swim Programme has water polo specific modules in Levels 8 – 10, known as the Aquatics Skills Framework.
These three steps on the Programme involve learning the basics of the sport from movement, shooting and passing to more complex skills and technique. Ask your child’s swimming teacher about it at the next lesson.
The Aquatics Skills Framework also involves playing Mini-polo – a beginner’s version of water polo with a smaller ball.
The rules of Mini-polo are more relaxed – players can stand up for example – so you can play in shallow water and just use floats or cones as goalposts.

LEARN TO SWIM PROGRAMME
START YOUR SWIMMING JOURNEY WITH US NOW.
Our Learn to Swim Framework is about developing confident and competent swimmers through fun and enjoyment, and Learn to Swim Stages 1-7 are at the heart of our Learn to Swim Programme.
It is the most widely known part of swimming lessons for children and is the backbone of swimming lessons for primary school aged children.
Each of the seven stages of the Learn to Swim Framework has a clear set of targets for the pupil to meet so they can get to the next stage.
This part of the Programme not only teaches a child to swim using the four strokes. It also gives them a number of other skills, which when put together, give children the ability to do a range of other water-based sports.
The Learn to Swim Framework gives children confidence in their ability to swim. From this comes more enjoyment of swimming, a love for swimming and being in the water and the skills and motivation required to lead a healthy and active lifestyle through regular swimming through to their adult life.
