Children’s Advanced Swimming
This session is a 50-minute, highly-structured course of training sessions. It suits those aged 8 and upwards.
It gives the opportunity to develop and refine stroke technique and to improve stamina but also to learn and develop aspects of competitive swimming and basic water safety.
Basically to sum up, children must be competent in 3 of the 4 main competitive strokes (i.e. freestyle, breast stroke and back crawl). The fourth competitive stroke developed in lane swimming is the butterfly.
Children should also be competent in side stroke, as apart for the butterfly, stroke technique is not taught in this class.
If you are unsure of your child’s ability, a pre-assessment can be arranged. Please contact 027 66134.
