Our Active Training/AUSTSWIM qualified instructors focus on;

  • Continual improvement of stroke technique
  • Introduction of longer distances
  • Introduction of breaststroke and butterfly

Correct stroke technique remains paramount but now your child will learn to swim over a greater distance building slowly to develop endurance and speed.

Breaststroke and butterfly drills are introduced with a focus on perfecting technique and entry into our Junior Squad Levels.
