Overview of Stages
This first stage aims to give swimmers the confidence to get into the pool safely, be able to move around the pool with confidence and not panic if splashed. These classes are for people with no previous swimming experience, nervous swimmers, or those who have had a negative experience in the past which has halted their swimming journey.
The second stage aims to give swimmers the skills necessary to start swimming independently over short distances without support or floatation equipment. These classes are for people who have completed the 'Be Water Confident' stage, or who have a small amount of previous swimming experience and feel confident enough to practise skills with the use of floatation equipment.
The third stage aims to give swimmers the necessary skills to swim up to 400m independently, as well the confidence to try other activities taking place in the pool, including aquacise, or lane swimming. These lessons are for people who have completed the 'Be A Swimmer' stage, or for those who can swim 25m or more and would like to improve technique and build on stamina.
This is the final stage in the Adult Swimming Framework and aims to give swimmers the necessary skills to confidently enter a Masters Section of a swimming club. These classes are for people who have completed the 'Be A Better Swimmer' stage, or for those who would like to develop more advanced swimming skills, be able to compete or become a member of a swimming club.
