Swim School

Now all children having a holiday at Sunwing can learn to swim! During June-August 2014 we have a swim school at Sunwing Makrigialos Beach, together with Medley. This must be prebooked from home, at least a week prior to arrival at the hotel.

The basic idea is for the children to enjoy themselves and getting used to being in the water, and through that enjoyment learn to swim. A medal will be awarded to all that complete the swim school course. The swim school is run by Swedish staff, trained by Medley. There are three levels, with five lessons per week from June 13th to August 28th. Minimum age: four years.

Swim school Part 1, from 4 years old

This is a kids’ activity, aiming through playful and varied games to get children used to being in, and enjoying, water. This is done by playing with water toys and by doing various easy tasks. The combination of group dynamics, playfulness and skilled teachers usually results in all children, regardless of their earlier attitude to water, becoming accustomed to being in the water as well as an introduction to the basics of both breast stroke and back stroke. We emphasize being able to float without any buoyancy aids, as this is a necessity for learning to swim.

Entry requirements: None
Number of lessons: 5 lessons of 40 minutes

Swim school Part 2-3, from 5 years old

For children used to being in the water. The lessons are adapted to the children’s’ abilities. Children from part 1 and 2 should be able to float on back and stomach without buoyancy aids. We mingle games with group exercises and individual practice. Whilst playing, we practice arm and leg strokes. We emphasize leg strokes as they are essential to both breast and back stroke. Once leg strokes are mastered, we add arm strokes and suddenly, they can swim ”for real”. Once the child can swim ten meters back stroke and the same for breast stroke, with head above the water, he or she is ready for the next part.

For all those able to swim ten meters, the next part is fine tuning arm and breast strokes, practice endurance and gain the courage to swim in deep water. Some children may have to practice immersing their head, or jumping into deep water, turn, and swim back to the edge, and we will practice this as well. When the child can swim at least 50 meters breast stroke and 25 meters back stroke with correct arm and leg strokes he or she is ready for the next part..

Entry requirements: Having passed part 1, i.e. being comfortable in the water without buoyancy aids and being able to float on back and stomach unaided.
Number of lessons: 5 lessons of 40 minutes

Personal swimming teacher, from 4 years old

Swimming lessons adapted to your personal needs. It could be basics in crawling or fine tuning techniques for those that already know the basics. Together with your personal swimming teacher you set the agenda, whereupon the teacher will arrange lessons for you to reach your individual goals. Our private swimming teachers can also be employed for children needing extra practice to develop their swimming abilities.
