Stroke School

Stroke Correction Lessons: Ages 5 – 16yrs

 

All the swimmers taking Stroke Correction lessons are already “water safe”, that is, can help themselves for 10 metres or more. With our younger swimmers and beginners (those experiencing Stroke Correction for the first time) a lot of time is spent on initially learning the different kicking actions, exhalation, breathing and horizontal body position i.e. the fundamentals to all good swimming. Our approach is to expose the swimmers as early as possible to many different elements and means of propulsion of swimming.

 

As fine motor control improves and strength improves, we add more advanced drills and tips and technicalities. The correct stroke progress steps are adhered to. From the coach’s perspective, an emphasis is placed on sharing and imparting as many stroke tips and key points to swimmers as possible.

 

We work at refining and perfecting all four competitive strokes. The specific drills associated with improving each of these strokes are taught as well as the FINA dives, turns and finishes. We have successfully prepared young swimmers for the next step when we are confident that they can train and race efficiently and effectively. These swimmers move onto a Fitness lessons when all four competitive strokes are consistently correct and the swimmer have a broad knowledge base of the key points, racing tips and drills of the strokes. That is our goal with these lessons and we love coaching these lessons.

 

Many of our Stroke Correction swimmers take part in WPA Junior League galas and benefit from the exposure that these galas give them.
