Learn to Swim

 

Background

Our Learn To Swim programme enables young swimmers to learn the basic techniques needed to swim the four strokes correctly. This important first stage of swimming is all about having a good time whilst learning to swim properly and confidently. The Club has adopted the National Teaching Plan for Swimming (NPTS) and swimmers will be progressed through the widths sessions following the NPTS Skill Level Awards, as well as having the opportunity to gain distance badges with a view to ultimately feeding through to our competitive squads should your child have the ability and desire to further develop their swimming potential.

 

Our teachers are ASA qualified and we also encourage and use our older swimmers to help the younger children and pass on their skills. Children can start with us at 4½ years and once they have learned to swim, have perfected their techniques and developed some stamina there is the possibility to  progress to the next level with Redditch Swimming Club - introducing  them  to competitive swimming and leading them to greater things!!!!

  

Our Learn to Swim Programme is based at the Abbey Stadium where groups progress through the learner pool, and then into our Dolphin’s group in the main 6 lane 25m pool. For our beginner groups we pride ourselves on having smaller teaching groups, where swimmers will receive quality lessons from our ASA qualified coaching team: Megan Moss, Leah Daines, Tom Rider and Rebecca Street. They are ably supported by our poolside helpers: Lauren Hewitt and Jamie Chance. As a club we encourage some of our teenage swimmers from the competitive squads to also help teach and pass on their skills to the new emerging swimmers.
