Program Levels

During each session, children will be assessed on their progress. Prior to the commencement of their next session, each child will receive a Swim and Survive level assessment informing parents which level of the new session they will start in. Please be advised that this is only an indication and all competencies need to be considered when receiving the new swimming level - therefore please be aware that these may not always correlate.
