STROKE DEVELOPMENT

Swimming is a journey, one that lasts a lifetime.

This program is age & ability based & builds on the skills developed during the earlier stages of instruction. The focus of the program is to further develop correct technique in all strokes. The program builds on water safety and survival skills. It provides the basis for progression into squads.

WITH TWO AGE GROUPS, STUDENTS ARE LEARNING FOUR LEVELS OF SWIM SKILLS WITH OTHER CHILDREN OF SIMILAR AGE AND ABILITY

LITTLE SNAPPERS

PRE-SCHOOL AGE 3 - 5

SNAPPY CROCS

SCHOOL AGED 5+

LEVEL 5

FUNDAMENTALS OF FREESTYLE & BACKSTROKE
Now that the student has mastered a good body position, kick and pattern of arms it is time to teach them how to perform a side breath in freestyle, and to perform backstroke with correct pattern of arms. Tread water and safety remains an integral part of the lesson.

LEVEL 6

DEVELOPMENT OF FREESTYLE & BACKSTROKE
A culmination of mastering all the body position, kick, pattern of arms and breathing to produce a child who can swim freestyle breathing every 4 arms and backstroke with continuous movement of their arms. Tread water and safety remains an integral part of the lesson.

LEVEL 7

INTRO TO BREASTROKE. MASTERING FREESTYLE & BACKSTROKE.
A class that introduces bilateral breathing in freestyle, extensions of backstroke & the introduction of breaststroke kick with correct timing. The children will continue to work on becoming stronger more confident swimmers, increasing the distances swum whilst maintaining correct technique. Tread water and safety remain an integral part of the lesson. 

LEVEL 8

INTRO TO BUTTERFLY. MASTERING OF ALL STROKES.
A continuation of distance and technique in freestyle and backstroke. The children will learn the complete strokes of breaststroke and the beginning of butterfly in preparation to join our Croc Squads. Tread water and safety remain an integral part of the lesson.
