Very often we have children join us who have learnt to swim unaided elsewhere. If the children have not learnt correctly from the start they will reach a point where they are unable to progress further due to their incorrect technique. This is why we are heavily focussed on teaching correctly from the outset.

If your child has a part of their stroke which has become an incorrect habit they will need to “go back” to correct this before they can progress further. This is by no means causing them to lose their strength, stamina or ability, it is necessary in order for them to improve upon their current ability.

We are always happy to take the time to explain this to you and also about our methods – this is most easily done over the phone as there is often not time during lessons.
