Learn to Swim
About the program
The Learn to Swim program is for children who are not experienced swimmers. These young swimmers need to get used to the water and begin moving forwards on their stomachs and backs. Children practice jumping into the water and diving. The movement has to be fluid and close to effortless before the student is moved to the CLINIC level.  
Learn to Swim is taught by senior Bergen Barracuda swimmers.  All instructors have full knowledge of all four competitive strokes.  Instructors have been trained to assess each swimmer and address each of his/her needs.
If interested in the Learn to Swim Program, please contact Nicky.
