Holiday Intensive Program - H.I.P
Description: As children learn more quickly when an activity is repeated, lessons are given every day for 5 days over one week during the Summer school holidays for a reduced fee. This enables the muscle memory of the swimmer to be able to retain the skill more effectively. The holiday program produces significant results, especially for children who are either new swimmers, or those looking to improve on their swimming skills.
Class Size: 4-5 swimmers max.
Duration: 30 minutes (45 minutes for Makos) everyday for 5 days in addition to their normal scheduled lessons.
Time Table: This program is available for students in all levels at Billabong Swim School. Please contact your closest pool reception for more information about this program. These classes are very popular, so please book early.
Carnival Prep Class
Description: Usually in the Summer school holidays we will run a Carnival Preparation Class for children swimming at Dolphin, Stingray, Swordfish and Mako levels. The class focuses on Starts and Turns and helps to build children's confidence in swimming in an outdoor heated 25 meter pool, which is the setting of most school carnivals.

Description: Rainbow Fish is for our children with special needs and abilities that make our world colourful and unique! They mostly swim in one on one classes with a teacher, but some of our Rainbow Fish may be mainstreamed into the regular classes. An individualised program is developed for each child as to their ability to see, hear, comprehend and follow directions. These little swimmers will be extended as far as their ability will allow. One of our Little Fish may someday be a future Special Olympian or Para-olympian!!
Class Size: 1 unless mainstreamed then 5 max.
