Private swimming lessons from 6 months to adults

We realised when we commenced the business that there was a need in our area for high quality one on one private lessons at a reasonable cost. Therefore the main focus of our swimming tuition is private one on one lessons where children of all ages and abilities learn and progress at an accelerated rate due to the individual attention given to each student. Each teacher only focusses on one child at a time giving the teacher the opportunity to gear the lesson specifically to that child.

We run lessons for children from 6 months of age, and parents do not need to be in the pool as the Austswim teacher will look after the child in the water. We realised that a lot of parents do not want to be in the water for the lesson and are more than happy for the teacher to fully conduct the learning process. Children often will do better with a teacher, rather than parent, when it comes to swimming lessons. Children build up a trust with their teacher because they have the continuity of having the same teacher each time they come along for a lesson and develop a incredible trust with the teacher.

  • As our lessons are private, we can try to match teachers personalities to childrens personalities.
  • All lessons contain a water safety component to meet with Austswim guidelines.
  • We also do private lessons for adults and our trained coaches specialise in stroke correction.
  • We have been conducting learn to swim programs for some of the local schools in our district for a few years now and they are very popular.

School holiday intensive programs

The swimming intensive programs we run in the school holidays - the aim of these programs is to achieve the maximum amount of progress from each student by having them participate in a lesson each day for a week. This continuity works wonders for their progress.

At Vitarose Swim School we promote a relaxing quiet stress free environment. We speak quietly and calmly in the pool, and give instructions in a clear and concise way using words the student will understand relative to their age/intellectual ability.

Lessons are taught with teachers in the water with the students during the lesson, not out on pool deck. This is a safe way to teach as the student is always only a arms length away from the teacher. The only time a teacher would be out on pool deck during the lesson is to walk along and do stroke correction with lap swimmers.

School holiday intensive programs every week of school holidays all year round. - private lessons only.
