Fish out of water
Our Fish Out Of Water home-learning programme complements other in water learn-to-swim programmes, by developing and reinforcing the motor skills that make up core swimming strokes. These motor skills are often easier to learn out of the water and far easier to correct. For children starting out, this programme offers a great way to lock in these neural pathways and learn skills with great technique, rather than reinforce poor technique and spend a lot of time and money wondering why your child’s stroke is taking so long to develop.
Focusing on two core areas:
● Physical: Muscle memory and motor skills. Your child will practice swimming techniques through repetition, including kicking (front and back), arm circles (front and back), and breathing.
● Water Safety: Where your child learns to make good choices in and around water, including:
○ Lifejacket Safety
○ How to be water safe at a pool, beach and in a bath
○ Dangers in and around water
Lessons are online via our weekly webinar, so you and your child to watch and practice together.
Best suited for 4-8 years old Swimmers or non-swimmers.
