Swimming courses stage progression
Learners will develop basic safety awareness, learn basic movement skills and water confidence skills. They will also be introduced to a structured class setting. Swimmers may use flotation equipment, such as armbands and floats, throughout this stage.
Swimmers are also introduced to aquatic breathing and taught to make safe entries into the water, including jumping. They will develop basic floating and learn how to rotate to regain an upright position without support. All travel must be achieved without the use of flotation equipment, though buoyancy aids may be used when swimmers aren’t travelling.
They streamline through push and glides, whilst also swimming underwater. Swimmers will develop safe entries into the water, including submersion, and travel up to 10 metres on their front and back. Water safety knowledge and rotation skills will also be progressed.
They will develop an understanding of buoyancy through a range of skills and should swim 10 metres and by the end of this stage, swimmers are expected to have a clear ability to perform recognisable leg kicks for all four strokes.
A key activity in Learn to Swim Stage 5 is sculling, which is an important skill to master as it is not only prevalent in artistic swimming, but is also vital to ensuring water safety. Learning to tread water is an important area of development and again is a crucial lifesaving skill. Swimmers can achieve the Stage 5 Rainbow Stroke 10m Award in all four strokes.
The effective swimming skills taught include coordination, breathing and an understanding of water safety. Within this stage, swimmers will work on all the other strokes, including streamlining, improving their technique with both their arms and their legs Swimmers will also learn to swim in clothes and understand how to be safe when they’re in and around water.
All kids below 6 years should learn survival swimming where they save their life from drowning and turn to their backs to keep the air path open and away from water and swim until the poolside.
Learning how to swim is not just the way to keep your child safe; they should learn how to act with the obstacles they could face in the sea or in the pool.
My progressed swimming courses will let your child to understand the techniques clearly and an easy way to focus on one task and get improved in each lesson.

There is no age restriction to learn swimming, every person has the ability to learn swimming.
Usually after gaining the basic skills, the learner will have the chance to swim in deep water with equipment first.
