Stage 7

Stage 7 is the final Swim4Life programme stage, meaning your child will be fully competent in a range of skills by the end of this level.

This level develops individual and group movement in the water skills, and children will be able to swim at least 200 meters.

It doesn’t mean your child’s learning in the water needs to stop there, though. We still have lifeguard and lifesaving courses available for those looking to develop their ability further.
