  • Q: Where is the Swim Pool located?

    A: Our pool is located next to Nguyen Du School 267 Tran Nhan Tong, Cam Chau , Hoi An.

    Q: How long will it take to learn to swim?

    A: All children learn at different pace. We must never compare them against other children or try to rush or push them beyond what they are capable of. It’s just not possible to put an exact time on things however, we can tell you the more the children are exposed to water the quicker their progress is.

    Q: What will my child learn in the lesson?

    A: We have six levels at Aquatic Training School. All levels include teaching water safety skills.

    Level 1 – Entry level where children learn water familiarisation, confidence in the water, floating and submerging, kicking on front and back, dog paddle and water safety skills. All are supported by the teacher.

    Level 2 – Continue with skills learnt in level 1 and progress learning these skills to be able to do by themselves. Focus is on preparing for the next level.

    Level 3 – This is our intermediate level. We progress from learning dog paddle to learning freestyle and backstroke. This level is the most challenging and can take a number of lessons before assessment to the next level.

    Level 4 – In this level we are working on technique and strengthening our swimming skills for freestyle and backstroke and also introduce breaststroke.

    Level 5 – This level the focus is on correct swimming style and length of distances to swim. Breathing in the correct way for each swim stroke is reinforced and adjusted.

    Level 6 – We are at our last learn to swim level. Students perfect all the swim skills in preparation for junior swim fit group if they wish to continue to build their strength and fitness in swimming.

    Junior Swim fit class are for students who wish to continue swimming for fitness and fun.
