We are thrilled to welcome you to Ridgewood College’s Aquatics Programme. Ridgewood College have appointed Little Fishes Swimming School to facilitate a comprehensive aquatic programme that will be offered as part of the school curriculum, as well as an extramural activity for those wishing to pursue it further.
Little Fishes are using their teams and knowledge from Baby Fishes, Little Fishes and Baracuda to offer an all-inclusive aquatics programme, starting with water safety and “learn to swim” initiatives, right through to coaching and competitive training. The programme will be offered at both Country Kids Preschool and Ridgewood College, ensuring that the proper groundwork is laid out for young swimmers coming up into the College.
Baby Fishes classes are aimed specifically at infants between the ages of 6 months and 3 years old. These are conducted by specially trained Todswim instructors who have done extensive safety and water training for younger swimmers.
‘Learn to Swim’ classes are aimed at children 3 years and older that are not yet water safe. These children require classes to improve their swimming skills, and also ensure they are safer in and around the water.
Baracuda Swimming Club focuses on coaching and competitive swimming. This is aimed at children who are proficient in the water and ready to swim at gala and open water level. This is a wonderful way to promote healthy competition and camaraderie.
