MSAC SWIM LEVELS 

Welcome to the New Look MSAC Swim School. Our new swimming lessons program for everyone’s individual swimming goals. Whether you're looking to teach your young one to swim and be safe around the water or looking to start open water swimming as an adult, our program offers the opportunity to challenge you as your technique progresses whilst offering pathways for your individual interests and goals.

MSAC’s Water Babies program allows parents to bond with their babies in a relaxed and enjoyable aquatic environment. Our Water Babies classes build water familiarisation and confidence through a mix of songs, activities and games. All of our activities are targeted to teach kids vital swimming and survival skills in an engaging manner. Our lessons are also supporting children gross motor and fine gross motor development, and swimming has been proven to increase left and right brain patterning, supporting your child’s cognitive development. These classes are beneficial for both babies and adults, providing a forum where parents can explore relevant issues and learn to feel confident around the water with their children. 

MSAC Swim Schools new swimming program now caters to Preschoolers and School Aged Children. Our preschool aged lessons are designed to have your pre-schooler building skills and confidence over distances that are appropriate for their development, as each skill is mastered they are upgraded and new skills and distances are introduced. With regular assessments and feedback, along with small class sizes you will find your pre-schooler coming along quickly through our fun based teaching approach for this age group. Once 5 your child will be assessed and moved into the appropriate school age level based on the skills acquired.

Our School aged program caters for beginners from 5 and up and for children coming out of our preschool program. The program is designed to build on your child’s existing skills and water confidence. Children in our school aged program are regularly assessed to ensure their progression right through to the final level our school aged program. Each level is designed to extend the distance of existing techniques and introduces a new skill so that children feel comfortable and confident trying new techniques. The MSAC Swim Schools learn to swim program focuses on the development of swimming techniques across both competitive swimming and water safety.  Upon their final assessment for this program children will be able to demonstrate all the required skills for them to explore our their interests in our extension pathways program.

FITNESS SWIMMING

There are many health and wellness benefits to swimming. This Extension Pathway stream is about teaching people the benefits to a well balanced training module, how to structure your training, set goals, and work hard to achieve them under the guidance of our instructors. 

TEEN  LESSONS 

The MSAC Swim School understands that sometimes the drive to learn swimming comes once participants can voice their concerns and feel more in control of their body. With this in mind we have introduced our Teen Lessons, catering to Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced Swimmers this stream is there to refine technique and ensure participants feel supported by their teacher and peers whilst they gain their swimming goals.

Emphasis in our Adult classes is on creating a relaxed and encouraging environment where adult swimmers can learn basic swim strokes while developing water confidence and safety skills. Intermediate and Advanced classes offer the opportunity to refine technique and build fitness. Our Fitness streams then offer participants an opportunity to embrace their new knowledge and skills into their weekly health and wellness regime.
