Rating: 5
from 1 members ratings

This session is designed for your paddlers, swimmers with a basic level of confidence in the water and a knowledge of stroke technique but who still need to put the components together for a more efficient swimming technique.

What are we working on in this Session?

In the previous session we covered paddling on your front. This session looks to build on the skills covered in that session and develop your swimmer's ability to swim unaided on their back.

To get your swimmers off the floor and onto their backs this session works with and without floats to develop to push and glide with freestyle leg action, promoting good body position and the correct leg action (not too much splash!)


This session has progressions for you more able swimmers and conditions to help develop your less able swimmers.
