Sharks is a comprehensive Learn-To-Swim program run by the Hong Kong Island Stingrays Swim Club. Lessons are offered Saturday at the Tai Tam indoor pool. The Sharks program is offered for all abilities ranging from complete novice (who lack confidence and comfort in the water), to those swimmers who require stroke refinement and improved stamina.
Each level has its own clear and achievable goals, allowing swimmers to develop at their own pace within a structured, fun and safe environment. Swimmers are evaluated on their skills and stroke development based on the 4 levels of the British National Swim Awards and the AUSTSWIM criteria.
Sharks is the foundational Learn To Swim program that streams swimmers directly to the Stingrays competitive swim program.
