Dolphins Swimming Classes for Kids
Dolphins is the fourth stage in the 400 Gold program
Max 4 pupils per class / Duration 30 minutes
In our Dolphins class, your child is now one step closer to putting the entire freestyle stroke together. Learning the correct breathing for freestyle is crucial, particularly as swimmers are required to swim longer distances in the levels to come.
What Happens in a Dolphins Lesson?
Dolphins swimming lessons work toward formal stroking in both freestyle and backstroke. The swimmer will be assisted in developing these skills through the use of a pod board. This helps develop technique by providing a small amount of buoyancy to make learning the stroke process easier.
What Skills Will Swimmers Learn?
- Review Marlin skills
- Freestyle breathing technique
- Progress backstroke with a board
- Back and front floating
- Introduced to assisted dives and high elbow recovery in freestyle
What Merit Awards Will Swimmers Receive?
What Happens When a Swimmer Graduates Dolphins?
