We are Streamline Swim Academy and we offer swimming lessons for both children (from 2.5 years old) and adults, from non-swimmers to advanced level. We operate in a number of venues across Bristol, Bath and North Somerset
Streamline Swim Academy philosophy is that swimming can be learnt through structured, planned lessons with friendly, caring teachers. We believe that through good stroke technique everyone can swim with ‘minimum effort and maximum result’. Swimming is a life-saving skill and can also lead to enjoyment in other water sports.
Our Swimming Teachers
All teachers who work with Streamline Swim Academy are fully qualified, with relevant rescue tests, child protection and DBS checks. They are enthusiastic about their teaching, well organised and very approachable. They offer structured, planned swimming lessons in a friendly, caring environment.
Our Swimming Lessons
Streamline Swim Academy believes in structured swimming lessons around stroke technique, and a contrasting activity with a fun element. Every child learns in a different way and with small classes, teachers are able to structure lessons around individual needs to get the best out of every child.
Our teachers work in the water with the pupils until they have a basic leg kick, arm movement and breathing in all strokes, these classes have maximum of 4-5 to a group.
The pupil then moves in to a group of 6-8 with a teacher on the poolside.
Streamline Swim Academy operate a badge system based on continuous development, these are awarded at the end of the term and billed on the termly invoice for collection at the beginning of the next term. Each certificate shows the tasks a child has mastered for the award. The academy also does distance awards with pupils when the strokes can be sustained for the distance being assessed. During the term if a teacher feels a pupil needs to be moved to a more suitable class due to progress, Streamline will seek to find a space more relevant to their ability and not wait until the end of term to move.
Pre-School Swimming Lessons
Streamline Swim Academy has pre-school lessons for children 2.5 years to school age, on a Friday lunchtime and Saturday. There are 2 with a teacher or 3 where there is a teacher and an assistant in the water with them. Parents do not get into the water with the children but are expected to remain on poolside.
