At AUT Millennium Swim School, we run intensives weeks during the school holidays. Holiday intensives are a chance for your child to get in the water each day of the week. There are many reasons to enrol your child into intensives for the upcoming holidays. Here is a list of the top four ways they could benefit.

1. Fast-track their skills.

Getting your child in the water more often can only benefit them. When your child is getting day after day instruction, they are going to be able to pick up new skills at a faster rate.

2. Progress levels.

There may be a few skills that are holding your child back from progressing up a level. At intensive lessons, they will be able to practice those skills each day, and most likely become stronger at those they originally struggled with.

3. Improved technique = faster swimming!

Intensives aren’t just for those that struggle with some of the basics. Intensives can also be for those who just want their child to be stronger in the water. Intensives are one of the best ways to tweak the basics in order to develop a stronger swimming style, and increase speed in the water, especially those in the higher levels.

4. Feel for the water.

By repeating skills day after day, your child is getting a much better opportunity to learn skills and master them. I also believe that the more your child is in the water, the better, as this enables them to develop a good feel for the water. Feel is a major learning hurdle which can only be mastered by being in the water regularly and repeating skills as much as possible.

Overall, holiday intensives will help your child progress at a faster rate than if they were swimming once a week, as the more they are in the water, the better. Enquire about these school holidays intensives and be sure to get onto it early, as the classes fill up quickly!
