Basic Foundations

From basic foundations through to advanced techniques, JSSS classes are swimming lessons with a difference.
Our Classes
We have a total of 8 levels divided into 3 categories, each with a distinct objective:

Billabong – comprises the first two beginner classes which focus on the development of Water craft and safety.

Lake – comprises of three class levels which continue the water craft as learnt in Billabong but extends the focus on to learning correct Swim craft.

Ocean – trains the swimmers for competitiveness in a variety of disciplines and begins the “Champions Journey” for our students.

Call today and we’ll book a free assessment to allow us to determine the right class for you or your children.

WOMBAT

Wombat is the first level you see your child become a Little Mini Swimmer in all 4 competitive swimming stroke MOVEMENTS, with a sense of ease through the water. Like all young children on land a big part of their development at WOMBAT level is to create energy and excitement surrounding these movements but with some body awareness. Each class has a maximum of 3 Children to 1 Teacher.

Class Time: 30 mins

ROSELLA

ROSELLA is the entry level swimming squad. It runs for 60 mins continuing to develop awareness from the swimmers perspective to increase quality of body position. ROSELLA swimmers take ownership over their quality of body position during faster swimming.

NUMBAT

NUMBAT is the Junior Squad. It is the squad preparing for competition, if the swimmer is interested. It runs for 60 mins and as a member of the NUMBAT Squad each swimmer has the opportunity to attend 2 x Adult Squad sessions in addition to any number of the 3 NUMBAT Squad sessions, in a one week period. The Adult Squad is also available during School Holidays (not Christmas/Summer break). Guided by JSSS coaches the NUMBAT swimmers provide their own Goal Times, each term. This again helps to develop awareness & ownership over their quality of body position during very fast swimming, ie, during Time Trials. The most significant understanding required as a NUMBAT Swimmer is to recognise, learning to race with body position, now begins!
