Children can start in the program at age 4, but due to the popularity and demand we strongly recommend parents to put their child's name on the waiting list from the age of 3.
The program follows the asa National Plan awards stages 1 - 7 continuing on to the STA Bronze, Silver & Gold Awards. We also cover Rainbow Distance and Water Safety Skill Awards. Certificates and badges are presented twice yearly.
We take a long term interest in the pupil's mental and physical development. Many of our swimmers choose to enter into club swimming and find due to their technique and ability they are selected for the Isle of Man top squad team. The Aqua Pearls high reputation has been established from past and present parents who continuously recommend us.
We also have a specific class for pupils who are interested in learning life saving skills and would like to qualify as a Rookie Lifeguard. This is held on a Friday. It is a fantastic course and the pupils thoroughly enjoy it.
There are Bronze, Silver and Gold RLSS certificate to achieve.
