Trial classes at Swish
We think trial classes are important for your child as well as your opportunity to meet us! We charge $40 weekday and $44 weekend (prices exclusive of 9% GST) for a trial class What to expect at your trial class:

Pace of Class

Trials take place during regular class sessions. During the class, the Swish swimming instructor will ensure they balance your child’s needs with those of the rest of the class. 

The instructor will explain each activity so that you have a chance to see what the other children are doing.

As young children tend to get distracted if the instructor stops the singing and games, we try to ensure the class continues at pace. 

Generally, all activities are performed twice, so if you feel more comfortable watching the first time around, feel free to take part on the second round!

Help Your Child to Trust The Instructor

It is natural if your child feels anxious in a new environment with people they don’t know.

While some children will happily trust the instructor, others may feel apprehensive, and may not want to be passed to the instructor for the “swim” section of the program.

We understand it is difficult to watch your child experience anxiety, however we would ask you to reinforce that the instructor is there to care for them.
At Swish, we follow the AUSTSWIM curriculum and do not submerge children unless:

The parent advises that the child has had previous experience being submerged (even then, the instructor may choose to let the child “swim over the top” until the child is comfortable with them) or if the instructor sees the child showing some readiness to be submerged.

Questions

Generally, the instructor will have a class straight after yours and may not be able to spend time speaking with you personally about your child at that point in time. However, Swish instructors are always happy to speak with you once they have finished with their classes, so feel free to ask them when they would have a suitable time to speak over the phone. Additionally, you can also email admin@swishswimming.com and we’ll get someone relevant to call you.

Payment

Trial classes cost $40.00 weekday and $44.00 weekend. Payment is made within the customer portal when booking the trial class.

We try to encourage fun, friendly group dynamics in classes at Swish, and genuinely care about teaching your child water safety, swim strokes (age-appropriate) but most importantly, how enjoyable water activities can be! Learning to swim is not just about strokes – it’s about learning to communicate with water in a way that unlocks an aquatic lifestyle that will set them up for a myriad of fun pursuits later in life.
