Learn about our classes

Our small classes and individual lessons are tailored to each swimmer. We plan and deliver each session to meet the specific needs of every swimmer at Great Waves Swimming Academy. Great Waves swimmers progress at a quicker rate, learning the importance of water safety and confidence, and applying this to stroke technique and water skill acquisition in a safe and enjoyable environment.

Child Progression

It is important that parents and swimmers alike see their hard work pay off and so at Great Waves Swimming Academy, we are committed to providing parents with written term reports to follow their child’s progression, as well as constant encouragement through our Teddy Mascots and Swimming Excellence Awards. We follow the ASA National Teaching Plan, which provides swimmers with a comprehensive understanding of the strokes and water skills.
