Three Levels of Learning Excellence

At Goldfish Swim School - Birmingham, we understand that every child is unique, and their swimming abilities vary. That's why we offer three distinct levels of Glider swim lessons to cater to kids with varying levels of experience and comfort in the water.

Level 1: Water Discovery (No Experience Needed)

If your child is taking their first plunge into the world of swimming, our Water Discovery level is the perfect starting point. Our 30-minute swimming lessons for beginners are packed with fun and engaging activities that introduce fundamental skills such as submerging, breath control, and basic water safety. We create a nurturing environment where kids can develop a strong foundation while having a blast.

Level 2: Water Exploration (Building Confidence)

For kids who are starting to feel comfortable in the water but need to refine their skills, our Water Exploration level is the next step. We continue to focus on building confidence and competence through techniques like rolling over and back floating. Our experienced instructors use games and rewards to make learning enjoyable.

Level 3: Stroke Development (Independence Achieved)

Once your child has mastered the basics and is ready for more advanced challenges, our Stroke Development level is the ideal choice. In this stage, swimmers refine their strokes and develop the skills necessary to swim independently and with confidence.

Small Swimming Classes, Big Results

At Goldfish Swim School - Birmingham, we believe in providing personalized attention to every young swimmer. That's why we maintain a four-child limit per swimming class. This ensures that your child receives individualized instruction, making their learning experience safe, effective, and enjoyable.

Our Glider kids swimming lessons are designed to be more than just a class; they're an opportunity for your child to make lasting memories while building vital swimming skills. We create a positive and fun environment where each student can thrive.
