WELCOME TO AQUAJETS SWIM SCHOOL

We are a not for profit swimming club based in Newcastle upon Tyne

The club was established ten years ago and many of our teachers have been through our swim programme from being very young and are still training on a full time basis and competing at the highest levels.

All our swimming instructors are fully qualified Life Guards

We aim to provide an environment where swimming is taught in a fun, positive way with teachers that can demonstrate to the children the skills they are aiming to learn.

We operate out of two pools in Newcastle – our swim school is based at the Royal Grammar School term time only and our competitive club trains out of Sport Central Northumbria University all year round.

OUR TEACHING PROGRAMME

All children at all levels are given a swimming record card on joining

This card is marked up by the teacher each term

There is a reward structure for completion of each level

Learn to Swim

Classes are never more than four children in a class

The teacher is in the water with the children

We teaching floating on back as a priority – then full backstroke

All children are taught lifesaving skills from entry age ie falling into the water rotating onto back and floating, we view this is an essential skill for pool safety and parents having peace of mind on holidays.

Once a child can swim one length of the pool safely on their back they would progress to hour development classes level 1.

Hour Development Classes Level 1

Classes are never more than six children in a class

Teacher is in the water with the children

This group is focused on the technical skills of backstroke and front crawl

The children will start to use equipment, alignment boards, fins and snorkels to improve their skills

Once a child has mastered the kick and arm entry position for backstroke as well as being able to use a snorkel they will move onto development classes level 2

Hour Development Classes Level 2

Youth Club Session
