7 years + (Level 2)
Our Barracuda level is our last of learn to swim levels for school-age children before squads begin. Swimmers must be able to swim all four strokes when they are a Barracuda. Swimmers will now begin to swim sets of 50m of Freestyle, breaststroke and backstroke, with a focus on technique rather than speed. Butterfly is also progressed. Endurance and fitness across all four strokes has increased, and all swimmers are beginning to use the pace clock. Knowledge of safe race dives, starts, turns and finishes is also learnt through this level.
Maximum number of swimmers in class is 8. Class duration is 45 minutes.
