Diploma A

We provide the lessons for the Swimming Diploma A in the swimming pool of the Rehabilitation Center READE at the Overtoom 283 in Amsterdam. There are spacious changing rooms and warm showers. You can use the lockers (storage cabinets) for free, to put your valuable belongings. The pool has a size of 6 x 15 meters, making it very clear and safe. The water temperature is 32 degrees Celsius, which feels very nice. The pool has a adjustable floor. Zwemschool Pardoes uses a deepwater method. For that reason, the children will start with floaties. The development of water feeling is an important condition to be able to move in the water and to successfully learn a swimming stroke. Using the deepwater method, this offers the opportunity to spend sufficient time developing self-confidence, water feeling and floating on the front and back. 

The lessons are on Saturday and Sunday. A lesson lasts 45 minutes. Your child is classified for a fixed time. The times for level 1, 2 & 3 are: 9.00 - 9.45 9.45 - 10.30 10.30 - 11.15 11.15 - 12.00 12.00 - 12.45 12.45 - 13.30 The level 4 classes are also on Saturdays and Sundays. 8.15 - 9.00 13.30 - 14.15 14.15 - 15.00 For these classes there are no set times, parents are allowed to choose each weekend on which day / time they come.
