Programs Group Lessons

Ivanhoe Girls’ Aquatics provides a program for boys and girls which enhances swimming ability with a strong focus on technique and the development of water safety practices.

The program has five levels of 30 minute lessons: Blue, Low Green, High Green, Bronze, Silver and Gold. The 45 minute Elementary Session further develops fitness and prepares students for higher levels of squad swimming. These levels build on water confidence and basic water skills, through to the development of freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly.

Class numbers are small, with only four students in Blue classes, five students in Low Green, High Green, Bronze and Silver classes, and six students in Gold classes. Elementary Pre-Squad classes have between 10-12 students.

While student progress is monitored by your child’s teacher throughout the term, additional assessments are conducted by the Teacher in Charge (TIC). Customers are also welcome to speak with a TIC to request an assessment at any time.

Eligibility to progress to the next level requires students to consistently and effectively demonstrate correct technique for all level criteria. Do not hesitate to consult your child’s teacher or the Swimming Manager for more information.
