Fun and engaging introduction to the properties of water, key safety skills, confidence-building, submergence, floating, propulsion, breathing control. Teaching delivered through structured play without arm-bands.
Level I
Establishing the core principle of the optimum swimming body position, balance and co-ordination in front-crawl, back-stroke and breast-stroke initially with focus on leg kicks and basic breathing.
Level II
Continued focus on the core principle of the optimum swimming body position, balance and co-ordination in front-crawl and back-stroke with focus on arm movements to combine with both kicking and bilateral breathing to perform unassisted swimming over 10m.
Level III
Pupils repeatedly demonstrate front-crawl and back-stroke with established body position with timing in each stroke in deep water over 15m; introduction of breast-stroke arms to combine with kicking; focus on the basic bio-mechanics of all three strokes, plus diving.
Level IV
Advanced drills and bio-mechanics in front-crawl, back-stroke (body rotation) and breast-stroke to improve stroke efficiency and stamina over 20m; introduction of the butterfly kick and tumble-turns, plus continued diving practice.
