Gliders is for children who are 3-5 years old and have completed Floaters or show an equivalent level of competence.
In Gliders, children will combine kicking with gliding to learn how to propel themselves through the water. Swimmers will be introduced to deep water skills and swimming on their front and back for five metres.
Gliders is taught in small groups by a certified YMCA swim instructor who will encourage your child's progression. Children are encouraged to attend without a parent.
