Baby Swim Classes (2 weeks to 3/4 years)
You will find a SwimMania baby course very different to other swimming lessons. Our pool is always extra warm (32c+) and your baby will love the sensation of floating in such a warm, calm and friendly atmosphere. Your little one can join our swim classes from just a couple of weeks old, you will be amazed at what all our babies can achieve in the water. At SwimMania our courses are carefully structured, with progressive lesson plans for each week. Each lesson we try and teach you and your little swimmer something new, fun and exciting so each session is different. Our lessons are so much fun and babies and parents always leave the pool happy learning such an amazing skill! The babies are usually ready for a good long nap after their swim class and we have been told the little ones tend to sleep really well at night on a swimming lesson day! Our baby swim classes are perfect for you and your little star and our lessons will really help with all the babies senses, it's also an excellent bonding activity for you both! Baby swimming is completely natural; having spent months surrounded by fluid in the womb, babies have a real affinity with water! We look forward to teaching you and your little one very soon for lots of fun!

Big Kids Classes
Our baby swimmers progress into these classes so the parents can take a step back and watch the swimmers progress from our Viewing Gallery. The more advanced classes are for our swimmers who have completed our beginner classes where we will work on all the four main strokes - Front Crawl, Backstroke, Breastroke and Butterfly. We also include in our big kids classes life saving and water polo so all the swimmers are learning these fun skills while learning to swim.
Angelfish - Our angel fish classes are split into two levels: weak and strong. These classes are for our pre school swimmers who are able to swim in the water without a guardian. Swimmers must be able to follow instructions and hold on safely to move to this level.
Penguins - Beginner swimmer who are new to the pool or who still needs aids to swim. We have weak and strong classes for this level. (Stage 1/2)
Rainbowfish - Weak Swimmers who are happy to swim without aids on front and back for around 5 meters. They must be confident under water and be happy to jump in the pool. With no aids needed to swim. We have weak and strong Rainbowfish classes (stage 2/3).
Dolphins - Can swim with ease on their front and back with front crawl side breathing. They must know how to swim breaststroke using both arms and the correct leg kick. We have strong and weak Dolphin classes (stage 4 & 5).
Stingray - Can swim overarm front crawl (side breathing) and backstroke, a good standard breaststroke and butterfly and can swim at least 25 meters. (Stage 5/6)
Killer Whales - Can swim all four main strokes confidently for a minimum 50 meters. (Stage 6/7)
Additional Needs Classes (Otters)
If children have additional needs and are not yet at full time school they will join in with our mainstream Adult and Child classes, we run these every day. If the children are at full time school and they still need an adult in the water, we run an Additional Needs at 4pm on a Wednesday and 2pm on Sunday. If the swimmers do not need an adult in the water, we also have an Additional Needs class on a Sunday at 12.30pm with a smaller class ratio.
Adult Swim Classes
It’s never too late to start swimming and at SwimMania it’s just the perfect place to learn this important skill. Our pool is nice and warm with a comfortable depth of 1.15m deep throughout. Our classes are small and only adult swimmers will be in the pool while any adult lessons take place. We run adult classes Monday 7pm.
