STA International Learn to Swim Programme (ILSP)
Here at Dizzy's Dolphins, we use the STA's ILSP. The ILSP recognises that pupils learn to swim at many different ages and progress at varying paces, and consists of five progressive schemes which are interlinked.
STARFISH is an innovative series of 6 progressive awards designed to introduce babies from a few months old with the accompanying adult to a water adventure where water confidence and safety skills are introduced.
The STAnley First Steps Series is an exciting series of 7 progressive awards specifically designed to teach learners from 2 years – with or without an accompanying adult – basic swimming and water safety skills.
The Octopus series is an exciting series of 3 progressive awards specifically designed for children aged between 5 to 8 years old.
The Goldfish series is an exciting series of 3 progressive awards expanding on skills in a fun, progressive, challenging and rewarding way.
The Angelfish Series prepares swimmers to swim 25m without aid, perform butterfly stroke as well as mastering sculling techniques and entries to the water.
A range of 20 awards that reward distance and stamina over distances from 5 metres to 5,000 metres.
