A 5 level program covers Basic Learn to Swim through to Advanced Stroke Correction. We invest time to learn the basics of swimming, then focus heavily on the importance of perfecting stroke techniques before attempting to swim longer distances.
N1: LEARN TO SWIM WITH CONFIDENCE & BASIC TECHNIQUE 30 MINS
Comfortable, well balanced head and body positions are taught - vitally important in freestyle and backstroke. Focus is also on short distance drills to achieve straight arm, superstretch freestyle and backstroke, kicking drills and advanced deep water awareness activities. Breastroke Kick is also introduced.
N2: SWIMMING TECHNIQUES WITH DIFFERENT STROKES 30 MINS
Correct side breathing technique in freestyle is now taught and now that children have perfected a streamline head and body position we look for length and strength in freestyle arms and a very strong kicking leg action. We introduce more backstroke drills and breaststroke kick. We still perform short distance lessons that focus on perfecting technique.
N3: STROKE TECHNIQUE CORRECTION & ADVANCED LEARN TO SWIM 30 MINS
Now swimming freestyle and backstroke with efficient stroke technique, we introduce longer distances and more advanced drill work. Breaststroke stroke and kick co-ordination are perfected and butterfly kick introduced. Focus on maintaining an excellent stroke technique while completing longer distances.
S4: ADVANCED STROKE TECHNIQUE CORRECTION - PREP SQUAD 45 MINS
With a good foundation in freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke techniques, we introduce advanced stroke technique drills. Butterfly skills and drills are developed while race dives, turns and push offs are further advanced.
S5: PREP SQUAD 60 MINS
Whilst still developing stroke techniques in all four strokes, we introduce a "keyhole" butterfly stroke pattern. Race dives, turns and push offs are perfected and timed and clock sets are taught to understand squad work. We now see children who have a consistent stroke over long distances.
