Lear­ning to swim

Seahorse course (badge)

During this course in the two-meter deep water pool, the children learn how to swim bre­ast­stroke safely. Star­ting with the cor­rect move­ment of the legs, our inst­ruc­tors then teach them how to use their arms and legs in a coor­di­nated manner for swim­ming. The goal is to achieve the “Seahorse” badge. This includes bre­ast­stroke wit­hout aids over a distance of 25 meters as well as jum­ping and diving. For the latter, an object from shoulder-high water must be brought to the top.

  • Age: from 5 years
  • Pre­re­qui­site: An accom­panying person brings the child to the pool and picks it up again (you can watch during the course). In addi­tion, there must be no medical objec­tions against swim­ming (the cor­re­spon­ding cer­ti­fi­cate must not be older than one year at the begin­ning of the course).
  • Do not forget: Swim­ming cap with name, water wings, bat­hing shoes, shorts or suit, towel

Prices:

  • 15 exer­cise units á 45 minutes 120.00 €

Dates: cur­r­ently fully booked, new courses planned from January 2021

Seahorse just missed

Those who have roughly inter­na­lized the bre­ast­stroke tech­nique, but have only had swim­ming expe­ri­ence with a safety belt so far, can take addi­tional prac­tice hours in the two-meter deep pool to achieve the “Seahorse” badge. In the course “Seahorse just missed”, work is done on covering the distance of 25 meters safely wit­hout any aids in bre­ast­stroke. Jum­ping and fet­ching an object from shoulder-deep water is also tested.

  • Age: from 5 years
  • Pre­re­qui­site: An accom­panying person brings the child to the pool and picks it up again (you can watch during the course). In addi­tion, there must be no medical objec­tions against swim­ming (the cor­re­spon­ding cer­ti­fi­cate must not be older than one year at the begin­ning of the course).

Back­stroke tech­nique course

Whoever is the proud owner of the “Seahorse” badge may register for the back­stroke course. Star­ting from the cor­rect posi­tion in the water, overall coor­di­na­tion is sys­te­ma­ti­cally prac­ticed by moving the legs and arms. Anyone who swims 25 meters in the back­stroke during the exam wit­hout any aids and wit­hout drop­ping off will receive the “Back Frog Cer­ti­fi­cate”. However, this is not equal to other swim­ming level badges.

  • Age: from 5 years
  • Pre­re­qui­site: The “Seahorse” badge must already be achieved. Fur­ther­more, there must be no medical objec­tions against swim­ming (the cor­re­spon­ding cer­ti­fi­cate must not be older than one year at the begin­ning of the course).

Toddler course in the swim­ming pool Prohlis:

For children of pre-school age

We offer spe­cial courses for children’s insti­tu­tions. It is an advan­tage if the children know each other. There is no fear of con­tact, the par­ti­ci­pants moti­vate and inspire each other. The children should be fami­liar with the ele­ment water and have expe­ri­ence with swim­ming sleeves. Gli­ding, diving and jum­ping are taught. When lear­ning the bre­ast­stroke tech­nique, first the leg move­ments are prac­ticed inten­si­vely, then the overall coor­di­na­tion of arms, legs and breat­hing. As the pro­gress of the exer­cise increases, the swim­ming aids are sys­te­ma­ti­cally removed. The goal is to reach the “seahorse badge”. Regis­tra­tion is pos­sible at any time for swim­ming times in the morning or after­noon. In addi­tion to the course inst­ructor from Dresdner Bäder GmbH, edu­ca­tors from the children’s insti­tu­tion help to accom­pany the course.
