The aim of these swimming lessons is to introduce both frontcrawl and backcrawl arms and to improve on the skills learnt in the previous class set. Also trying to build on the confidence they have.
The focus is to implement the correct techniques from early on in their swimming journey so that when the children progress that they have a solid base which they can draw from.
The teachers in the water will only help when necessary and will use minimal manipulation of the child to ensure the technique stays as natural as possible. We provide both group and private lessons at this level with a max ratio of 4 : 1 in group classes.
Learn Silver – Teacher in Water
The aim of these swimming lessons is to introduce Breaststroke and continue the development of the other strokes already covered in previous lessons. In this group children will be encouraged to increase the distance of unaided swimming and will have their first opportunity to start dive practice.
The focus is to make sure that correct technique is taught, especially on Breaststroke as this is where a lot of long-term problems develop early and can be very difficult to rectify. When swimming unaided children will continually be prompted to use the proper techniques even if only a small distance to begin with.
Teachers will try and reduce the amount of assistance in water to build the confidence of the children and prepare them for intermediate classes. We provide both group and private lessons at this level with a max ratio of 4 : 1 in group classes.
