Our sessions will initially focus on enjoyment, confidence-building and water safety, then followed by stroke development, speed and stamina practice, and the learning of additional water skills.
I will usually join the swimmer in the water, and teach from within the water. For younger swimmers, this enables me to give them extra support as they learn to swim, and to help guide their movements and assist them as they learn the strokes, and as they progress it allows for underwater viewing of swimming technique and helps to highlight areas for improvement.
Our progress will be in line with the ASA Learn to Swim Pathway, from Ducking 1–4 and Stages 1 through to Stage 10. A variety of ASA Learn to Swim, Stroke Distance, and Water Skills certificates will be awarded on a regular basis, to serve as additional encouragement and motivation and to consolidate progress made.
Our one-to-one swimming lessons are considered ideal for:
children from ages 5+ years old
children who would benefit from play and confidence-building sessions
young swimmers who would benefit from the continuity of having a single dedicated teacher
individuals with more sensitive learning or physical needs
talented swimmers requiring personalised coaching
