St. Marys Aqua Go! Program

The London Regional Artistic Swimming Aqua Go! program is designed for boys and girls, aged 5-16yrs with little to no artistic swimming experience who are interested in trying the sport of artistic swimming, and learning specific skills in a fun way, as part of team environment. Your child will find an inclusive, safe and welcoming environment where they will have fun both outside and inside the pool. They will learn the important basic skills below that are great for recreational time in the water, but also set in place the foundation for any aquatic sport they might choose to pursue:
 

  • Floating and breathing

  • Water entries

  • Stroking and Kicking

  • Sculling

  • Body positions and water awareness

  • Agility, balance and coordination

  • Strength and flexibility
     

AquaGO! is taught in a group lesson by certified instructors, with program assistants providing additional safety, motivation, enthusiasm, and support to the participants. Children move to different stations where they learn through games, using music and equipment in a fun, active atmosphere. To keep them engaged and motivated, AquaGO! has built in awards and incentives to encourage children as they progress. They will also receive ongoing positive group and individual feedback from their instructors.

Aqua Go! athletes may participate in Club Watershows in London in December and April each season to share all of their progress with family and friends.

This program will only run if there are a minimum of 5 registrants. 1 hours per week at the Pyramid Recreation Centre, Aquatics Centre, St. Marys.
