Swimming @JuniorGrammar

The School has streamlined the Junior Aquatics program in recent times, and the introduction of our Learn to Swim lessons is one more step in this process. Children now have an aquatics learning pathway from the water discovery level right through to squad training.

IJGS swimming offers squad programs to cater to all levels of swimmer.

  • Bronze –  Is a straight progression from the stroke development class. This allows for continued development of all four strokes with an increase in fitness and distances.
  • Silver – Is for swimmers on the pathway to more competitive swimming, as well as catering to the older swimmer who is swimming for fitness or as a support to other sports or activities.
  • Gold – This squad offers swimmers the opportunity to continue all forms of swimming development with a focus on the development of competitive swimming skills. This program will facilitate swimming at club, state and national levels. Programs will be tailored to suit the ability levels, ages and needs of the swimmers. We also provide a land-based strength and conditioning program to complement the swimming program.

Cost: Free of charge to Ipswich Junior Grammar Students.
