At Roar Fitness Bibra Lake, we are committed to providing high quality, skill-based swimming lessons for children aged 6 months upwards. Our instructors are Austswim certified, and we follow the Royal Life Saving Swim and Survive program to equip your children with the skills they need to keep themselves safe in and around the water.
The Wonder Program is the ‘water familiarization’ component of the Swim and Survive program, and is designed for children aged 6- 36 months. In this level, a parent or carer accompanies the child into the water where they are taught a variety of skills including floating, breathing and movement. Wonder classes are a fun, challenging way to introduce your child to the water.
Courage is the ‘water confidence’ component of the Swim and Survive program and is designed for children aged 3 to 5 years. Courage works to develop the basic foundation skills in swimming, survival and water safety and encourages a positive and safe attitude towards being in and around the water. Courage uses fun and safe activities to gradually build upon breathing, floating and movement skills. Courage has 5 levels for children to progress through as they build confidence and develop new skills.
Active is the Swimming and Water Safety component of the Swim and Survive program and is designed for students aged 5 – 14 years. Active is used to emphasize the skills learnt in the program not only to save lives, but to provide a foundation for safe participation in a range of aquatic recreation, fitness and sporting activities. There are 3 developing awards and 7 core awards to progress through.
Our terms are ongoing, and only break for Christmas, which means that you can enroll at any time. Children are assessed on an ongoing basis, and graduate to the next level as soon as they are ready.
Lessons are purchased in 16 week blocks and can be paid for either in an upfront lump sum or as an ongoing fortnightly direct debit. If you need to miss a lesson, we are more than happy to organise a makeup lesson at a time that suits you.
We have classes every day during the week and on Saturday mornings, which allows us to be flexible in finding times to suit your busy lifestyle.
We offer a free session for your child to trial our classes, and to give our instructors a chance to assess them before formally starting the program. This ensures that your child is swimming in the optimal level from their very first class.
Kids Swim School Rates: $16 per week for a member and $19 per week for non-member
