If, for any reason, your child misses an assessment, they will have to wait until the next scheduled date for a complete evaluation of their progress. Please note that this rule applies to everyone, except for new starters who join the programme.
Why are these assessments so important?
These assessments are scheduled every 5 weeks and are vital for monitoring the progress of our budding swimmers.
Our swim lesson Instructors conduct swim assessments based on specific guidelines. They assess not only swim strokes but also broader water survival skills, ensuring your child learns essential skills to be a competent swimmer.
Assessing your child’s swimming ability can be challenging for parents, especially if they didn’t grow up on a swim team or take swim lessons themselves. Our instructors are experienced in evaluating body mechanics and can provide valuable insights on correct hand, body, head, leg, and hip positions during swimming.
Participating in a swim assessment allows us to get to know your family better and helps us place your child in the right swim lesson stage. This personalised approach ensures your child learns in a positive environment, increasing their chances of success.
Most importantly, swim assessments are FUN! Our instructors create a positive and enjoyable experience for every child. If your child feels unsure about their swimming abilities, a swim assessment with one of our swim instructors not only helps them learn but also makes the process enjoyable.
With LiveWire, there’s no rush when it comes to water safety. We focus on ensuring all swimmers are happy and safe around water. Whether your child excels or needs more time, our instructors will guide them until they are ready to move to the next swim stage. Safety and confidence always come first!
