Ocean Confidence Sessions
Our ocean confidence sessions are tailored specifically for our micro groms and groms who want to build their confidence in the water before hitting the waves. These programs run for 5 days and will include a ½ hour session daily and will cover all aspects of swimming and enjoying the ocean.
Ellen has over 10 years experience as a qualified swim teacher and has spent her life enjoying countless competitive long distance ocean swims. She is passionate about equipping everyone to be confident and knowledgeable about the ocean and understands not everyone has the confidence to jump right in and enjoy the magic our oceans offer us.
These sessions will be very small groups of 4:1 (students to coach ratio) so that all participants will be able to feel safe and gain confidence at their own pace.
Designed specifically for 1 years and up this is a chance to give your child the opportunity to feel safe in the ocean and begin to develop an understanding of the hazards we can encounter at the beach. All sessions are given in a fun and pressure free environment and parents are welcome to join their little ones in the water as they develop their ocean awareness and confidence.
Classes will be divided according to age and will only ever include 4 children. Private one on one sessions available on request.
