Frequently Asked Questions

What survival skills do you teach?

The survival skills component of our swimming programs is unique to Paul Sadler Swimland and is something we’re proud of. Although it is important to work on stroke development, we also focus on:

  • Teaching children what to do if they fall in the water, by having them jump into the deep end, flip onto their backs and then swim to the edge
  • Ensure they repeat any survival skills over and over again to help build their muscle memory and strengthen their confidence 
  • Teach children how to tread water unaided 
  • Help children learn how to float and blow bubbles 
  • Deep water recovery 
  • Ensure children in early levels do not use goggles so they get comfortable without them, just in case they ever fall into the water

We want every child to feel safer in the water and be more prepared to help themselves in the event that there is an emergency. However, as your child learns these survival skills, they will still be having fun and be able to enjoy their time in the pool.

How often should my kids attend swim schools?

Ideally, your child should attend a swimming lesson at least once a week to give them the best chance at progressing their swimming and survival skills, confidence, and coordination.

If you want your child to attend more than once a week, don’t worry, they can! We also have a holiday program that is available for any child seeking to swim and practice their skills more consistently throughout the school holidays. Just imagine the amount of progress they could make by swimming multiple times during the week!

Are your swim teachers experienced?

Unlike many swim instructors, our swim teachers have up to 200 hours of swimming school training before they teach any lessons. When running both their private and group classes, our teachers ensure that they give individualised support whenever possible, and remain empathetic and encouraging as they teach.

For one of the supportive swim schools around, choose Paul Sadler Swimland when learning your swim survival skills and building your water confidence. We’re here to help you succeed.
