Children’s Programme





Sign up for lessons


The programme is designed for children from the age of 4 years old and consists of seven coloured, progressive levels.


Each level contains twenty lessons and builds on the skills attained in the previous level. Topics include:

·     Water safety/lifesaving and first aid

·     The four competitive strokes

·     Basics of Water Polo & Synchronised Swimming


At the end of each level there is an assessment test to progress to the next level. As individuals progress at different speeds it may take more than one term to complete a level. A certificate is awarded to students when they pass the level.


After level seven students will be ready to join any of the clubs in the three aquatic disciplines active in Jamaica; competitive swimming, Water Polo or Synchronized Swimming.


The SwimJamaica Children’s Programme is progressive and fun. To ensure safety is maintained all our instructors are trained, lifeguard qualified and class sizes are small (Levels 1-3 one instructor teaching eight children, Levels 4-6 one instructor teaching ten children and Level 7 one instructor teaching twelve children ).


Inner city Sponsorship

SwimJamaica also provides sponsored places on the Children’s Programme for students from inner city schools enabling children to learn to swim who would not usually have the opportunity.


For further information on sponsoring children please contact the office.






My kids are truly exicted and are now able to help themselves in the water without fear. Thanks to your patient trainers
