The Quanta Club Swimming School organises swimming courses for all ages, using professional instructors belonging to the Italian Swimming Federation (FIT). Courses are divided according to age and type of preparation.

ADULT – BABIES (12 – 36 MONTHS)
Movement in water is an ideal activity for child development, thanks to the playing experience with the instructor and their parents. The role of the parent is to act as the go-between between the instructor and the little learner. The instructor explains what to do to the parent who, in turn, will put it into practice with his baby.
It is a privileged experience for both as it drives the baby to gain trust and learn new skills quickly.

CHILDREN (from 30 to 40 MONTHS):
This course is dedicated to babies from 30 to 40 months old without the presence of parents in the water. The objective is to allow the baby to acquire  basic water skills and autonomy in the baby-instructor relationship.

PRE SCHOOL (3 – 5 years)
Preschool courses are divided into 3 levels:
The learning stages are all game-based and adapted according to the requirements of each participant. The duration of the lesson is about one hour, of which the first 15 minutes is dedicated to pre-swimming exercises.
The 3 pre-school courses are:

  • Pony: this is the first contact with the water. Early fears are overcome and the relationship with the water is improved. The babies float using a support and gain more confidence in this activity.
  • Crayfish: after overcoming initial fears, floating is focused on and the first propulsions without aids.
  • Octopus: after initial swimming ability and propulsions have been achieved, the babies learn the rudiments of the swimming styles.

There will be practice in retrieving objects from the bottom of the pool and they will start to learn how to dive.

SCHOOL (6 – 14 years)
School courses are divided into four different basic levels and one for improving.
The learning stages are adapted  to the requirements of each participant. The duration of the lesson is about one hour of which the first 15 minutes are dedicated to pre-swimming exercises..
