The founders of ORCA Swim Schools believed there was a real need for a specialised facility to teach babies and infants critical first skills in the water in our community.
Previously babies and infants have learnt in aquatic centres along with squad swimmers, public swimmers and other members of the community. These facilities were often noisy and intimidating for little beginners, who need a calm and more personal environment to help them build confidence and those tentative water early skills. Our facility is purpose built in a local warehouse, in Phoenix Street Warragul.
Children are capable of amazing things given the right instruction and confidence. Parents who have seen results of infants in swim lessons swear by it, as their progress in their abilities are nothing short of amazing.
At ORCA Swim Schools we aim to give our kids everything they need to achieve their potential in the water. Low class numbers, 32-33 degree indoor heated pool, UV and Ozone sanitation (no yucky chlorine smells), clean and private facility, detailed teaching curriculum and ongoing personal attention is all part of the journey with us at ORCA Swim Schools and we can’t wait to see you in the water to join us in your child’s journey.
ORCA Swim Schools Innovative Learn to Swim Program
Our swimming program has embraced the recent development in babies learn to swim. Our babies program focuses on building abilities in the water for babies as they grow physically, just as their ability on land increases. It uses best practices from programs across the world, and focuses on the core elements of Conditioning, Buoyancy, Breath Control and Mobility.
The ORCA Swim Schools swimming program is a huge leap forward in teaching babies the basic elements of swimming at a young age. This strong curriculum foundation combined with small classes, and private facilities makes ORCA Swim Schools a critical part of many children’s development in the pool.
ORCA Swim Schools run quarterly training programs for our swim teachers to ensure the most up to date advances in the learn to swim industry are integrated with our own ideas so that your child gets the best learn to swim experience every time.
