Stroke/Squad/Water Polo

All our swimmers starting strokes have an independent back float, making it easy to integrate basic backstroke. As our student’s are taught to master rotating to get air, it enables them to develop bilateral freestyle breathing incredibly quickly, without developing the habit of ‘doggy paddle’ head-up front breathing.

STARFISH 1,2 and 3
Ages 13 months to 3 years

These formative years are incredibly important to ensure that children develop the strongest kick possible and learn control and coordination of their arms. Along with kicking and improved stamina, there is a big focus on the back float for safety and stroke purposes.

DOLPHIN 1 AND 2

Dolphin group teaches the formative skills required for correct rotational backstroke and dolphin along with an introduction to freestyle.

SEAL

The focus is on freestyle arms bilateral breathing and correct rotational backstroke.

BUTTERFLY GROUP

The front breathing strokes i.e. butterfly and breast-stroke are only introduced once freestyle, backstroke and dolphin have been mastered.

With our abundant sunshine and accessibility to water it is our belief that children need to be extremely confident in water. At B’s Swim School we pride ourselves in being the self-rescue and learn to swim specialists in South Africa as well as leading the way in our stroke development programme.
