Mermaid Swim Classes

Swim classes will first cover how to safely put on their mermaid tail and then enter and exit the water before teaching breath holding, dolphin kick action and then progress onto mermaid routines. The classes progress each lesson, teaching basic elements of synchronise swimming, team work and core strength.
