Proficiency Requirements

If your child missed the Nippers Proficiency Swim there are 2 options:

1. If your child is currently having swimming lessons or part of a swim squad, print out The Proficiency Swim Form, have it signed by a qualified swim coach and email it back to the office.

2. Depending on the re-opening of The Bronte Ocean Pool, there will be opportunities to become proficient at the first two weeks of Nippers.
Please liaise with your Childs Age Manager on the day.
