Learn Bronze – Teacher in Water
The aim of these 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.
Learn Silver – Teacher in Water
The aim of these 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 start swimming unaided 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.
