Learn to Swim Programme

 

The learn to swim programme provides a suitable environment for swimmers to learn and develop the core aquatic skills and fundamentals of swimming as they progress through the stages of the Learn to Swim Framework set out by Swim England. Once reaching the suitable stage swimmers will then have the option of leaving the programme however it is suggested that they continue through into the squad structure. This can be seen below. This will increase hours of swimming per week as a means to aid their total physical development.
