  • Understand a child’s skill level in the water
  • Practice skills in a certain area
  • Work on the techniques needed to get to the next level
  • New families can experience the Kingswim program

Fast Track is held at all of our locations throughout the year. You can find your nearest Kingswim and upcoming school holiday swimming lesson Fast Track dates by clicking on Find a Location below.

Choosing how to keep the kids entertained on school holidays is an age-old challenge for parents. First, there’s the need to adjust the weekly family routine, even for those not at school, then there’s a little person in tow, full of energy and happy to be young, wild and free. And then, inevitably, it happens– they’re not sure what to do with themselves, and ‘strength of spirit’ arises! Been there before? You’re not alone!

When on school holidays, swimming lessons may not be the first thing on the agenda – however, our Fast Track Program, as the name suggests, is a great way to fast-track a child’s swimming skills. It is a well-researched fact that a short burst of intensive swimming lessons accelerates motor skill development. Our school holiday swimming lessons, which focuses on intensive swimming lessons, are a wonderful boredom buster for Mum and Dad!

Coming to Kingswim for the first time? No worries! Fast Track holiday swimming programs are open to all families, whether they are already in the Kingswim program, swimming somewhere else, or are new to swimming altogether. Everyone can benefit from the intensive school holiday swimming program.

Just like our regular swimming program, our holiday swimming programs offer small class sizes and personal attention to each child. Fast Track incorporates the lesson plans relevant to your child’s level, and overlays this with a focus on survival skills on the last day.

The program involves intensive swimming lessons over a four day period, meaning you’ll still have plenty of time to enjoy the rest of your break! All children receive a Fast Track certificate at the end of the four days. As well as being a source of encouragement, it also makes for excellent show and tell when school goes back!

Day 1

On this day, we greet all families, both new and familiar, and welcome them to Fast Track. New children will be assessed to help identify the level (known at Kingswim as a K-level) that is best for their needs. Children who are already in the Kingswim program will be placed in their current K-level for Fast Track.  Teachers help the children to focus on the core skills that are needed to complete their current K-level.

Day 2

A focus on working within the current level continues. This is a great opportunity for new families to learn the milestones for their child’s K-level. For those who are already in our program, it is an opportunity to reinforce these milestones, and improve skills in a specific area of focus. We know that kids need ongoing encouragement, so we’re on hand to support them through sticking points and technique gaps, and to help give a little extra confidence.

Day 3

On this day, children are given the chance to practice their assessment tasks, as a way of helping them work towards the next level. Supervisors are on hand to review each child, and provide feedback to parents, ensuring that everyone is given close attention. Children are also introduced to what’s in the next level. This is a great way to work towards a whole new set of skills, and to help prepare children further for their regular lessons. Some children will even move to the next level, if through the Fast Track program they are identified as being ready.

Day 4

For the last day of Fast Track, emphasis is placed on water safety, survival and rescue skills. We know that the number one reason parents enrol their child in swimming lessons is to be safe in and around water, so this is an important inclusion in our Fast Track program. All children are given a Fast Track certificate at the end of program, to recognise and celebrate their participation.

Fast Track school holiday swimming lessons run for the same duration of regular lessons, being:

Common Questions

What should I bring to Fast Track? answer-icon

All children need to come with swimwear and a towel. Children who are in levels K4 and above will also need goggles, as swimmers in these levels spend a large portion of the lesson with their face in the water, perfecting the various strokes. In the colder months, we recommend bringing something warm and comfy to change into at the end of the lesson.
