Stroke correction lessons take place from Monday to Friday. Typically, these lessons start with children aged somewhere between 5 and 6 years of age depending on their progress and confidence in their learn to swim classes. Swimmers who have been through classes from learn to swim can complete stroke correction anywhere between 7 and 9 years old. This is very dependent on their physiology and consistency to lessons. Stroke correction classes focus very intently on fixing and tweaking every single element of the strokes in order to remove bad habits and make strokes more efficient. We do also bring in elements of fitness work to the sessions.
Lessons are taught in small groups of between 4 and 9 depending on age and ability. Lessons are taught by the coach from outside the pool. We highly recommend twice-weekly lessons as this promotes consistent and relatively fast progress.
Once ready swimmers move into one of our mini squads for more advanced stroke development and to learn the competitive starts turns and finishes.
