Competition Time! These stages are designed to teach children the foundations of competitive swimming. Skills such as tumble turns, dives and underwater techniques will be taught so children can continue their love of swimming whilst always learning something new.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES OF EACH STAGE
Welcome to Competitive Swimming! During this stage swimmers are taught the skills required to swim competitively. Even if your child doesn’t fancy racing quite yet, the skills developed during this stage will help them to become a stronger swimmer all round.
Underwater Technique! This stage focuses on the importance of starts, turns and underwater skills needed to race. Teamwork is also important and the introduction of relay races will practiced.
Ready to take on any swimming discipline! This final stage will allow your child to consolidate all of their learning from the previous 9 stages. Long distance achievement certificates will be accomplished, and children will have the opportunity to progress onto competitive club swimming, diving, water polo or synchronised swimming.
