Frequently Asked Questions

Why does my child have to leave Seals when they reach Seals Level 7?

Once our pupils reach a Seals 7 they are able to swim 25m+ front crawl, back crawl and breaststroke with good technique and have a good grasp of water skills.

The pupils are ready to move onto a bigger pool to develop further. The pools we use are small teaching pools we do not currently have a 25m pool available for us to use. We therefore recommend they move onto a larger pool to develop their stamina when swimming. Many of our pupils go on to join a swimming club, rookie lifeguarding club or triathlon club.
