Dolphins is the fourth stage in the 400 Gold Program

Max 4 pupils per class / Duration 30 minutes

Swimmers are now one step closer to putting the entire freestyle stroke together with swimmers learning the breathing technique in the Dolphins swimming lessons. Learning the correct breathing for freestyle is crucial, particularly when they are required to swim longer distances in the classes to come.

The Dolphins class works toward formal stroking in both freestyle and backstroke. The swimmer will be developing these skills using the pod board which helps develop technique through providing a small amount of buoyancy but easily manageable in stroke development. Once the required standard is achieved the swimmer is promoted to the Sharks class.
