Within our swim school we have 4 different class levels that our swimmers work towards. Within these class levels there are 2 different stages:
- Non Swimmer – Stage 1 & 2
- Beginner – Stage 3 & 4
- Improver – Stage 5 & 6
- Advanced – Stages 7-10
Each stage has a list of different competencies that our swimmers work towards and complete before moving onto the next stage. We believe in a swimmer led approach so that each individual can progress at their own pace and take the time they need to learn certain skills which allows for the most improvement over time. This means that before moving, for example, from non-swimmer to beginner they are comfortable with certain swimming skills that will then be increased in complexity, i.e. adding in a different part of the stroke or breathing techniques or increasing the swimming distance.
Due to this we can easily see our swimmers stroke efficiency progressing through each stage as shown in this video!
