Age Range: 5 - 10 years (at the discretion of the Swim School Manager. eg. with swimmers who have started lessons later)

Aims & Objectives: development & acquisition of skill to enhance the strokes already learned in lessons, learning fundamental movement literacy.  Instructors will teach ‘perfect practice’ and stroke efficiency. Swimmers will develop agility, balance, co-ordination, speed and power. Streamlining, gliding, basic ASA tumble and touch turns.  Poolside diving and jumps.  Swimmers will be able to progress along any of the clubs pathways; Fitness, Competitive or Performance. Emphasis on fun learning alongside a gentle introduction into club and fun galas.

Progression: Skill development: 25m on all four strokes progressing to ASA legal standards.  Proficient tumble turns & touch turns, poolside dives and streamlining.  The progressive aim is for these skills to become automatic, ie. the swimmer doesn’t have to think or be told to perform correctly.

Training Equipment Required : Swimmers will need to bring a drink to every session (1 litre minimum) as well as a kickboard, pullbuoy and training fins, well fitted goggles plus a spare pair and a swim hat.
