Another week of Holiday Intensives have now been and gone in April, and all we can say is WOW! The improvements we have seen have been incredible. The Intensives are a chance for your child to get five weeks worth of lessons done in one week. There are so many benefits to enrolling your child in Intensives for the upcoming holidays.

Here is a list of the top reasons why Intensives will help improve your child’s swimming.

Fast-track their skills. When your child is getting day-after-day instruction in the Intensives, they are going to be able to pick up new skills at a faster rate and strengthen the skills they have already learnt. We see many children moving up levels at the end of the week or very soon after!

Improved technique equals faster swimming! Intensives aren’t just for swimmers that want to learn new skills, they are also beneficial for those that want 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 for those in the higher levels.

Repetition is key. By repeating skills day after day, your child is getting a much better opportunity to learn skills and master them. We also believe that the more your child is in the water, the better. As being able to develop a good water feel can only be mastered by being in the water and repeating skills as much as possible.

During the last school holidays, we brought back the Skills Clinics. We had lots of positive feedback from parents on how much the clinics benefitted their child. Skills clinics can be a great way for your child to focus on a specific skill they’d like to improve on. Utilising the entire class focusing on one specific stroke, or skill (such as their turns), can help your child to improve their technique or learn the skills that they need to progress to the next level in their swimming.

Our next lot of Holiday Intensives and Skills Clinics will be held during the July school holidays. These sessions are also open to the public so invite your friends to sign up too. Enquire about these upcoming school holidays and be sure to get in early, as the classes fill up quickly!
