Why Swim Weeks?
Swim weeks or intensive weeks are a fantastic way to see rapid progress over a short time period! The repetition of swimming every days means the children retain a lot more of the skills they have learnt and are able to improve them more quickly compared to waiting a week between classes.
Swim weeks are particularly recommended for nervous or fearful children and those who are new to lessons. The course will allow the children to settle in, get to know ourselves, the pool and how the lessons work in preparation for their weekly lessons. We highly recommend any children with a fear surrounding the water or who are completely new to lessons complete a swim week before starting weekly lessons.
Swim weeks are also a fantastic resource for stronger swimmers who may need a bit of extra help with one area of their swimming. We often focus on one or two main areas over the course, depending on what the children would most benefit from.
Our swim weeks are always the same set up as our regular weekly lessons, with a maximum of just 4 children per class. We always run Easter and summer swim weeks and also often half term weeks.
Reduced Price Teacher Training Swim Weeks
At Seahorses we are incredibly dedicated to ensuring our teachers are the best around. In order to help our trainee teachers improve their skills we also run reduced price teacher training swim weeks. These are a fantastic opportunity for our swimmers to get a very cheap swim week and for our teachers to refine their skills as well. Our trainee teachers, of varying levels of experience, will be working under the guidance of our experienced teachers.
We tend to work on a range of different areas of the strokes and skills during these weeks and the lesson format is slightly different than our weekly lessons. Teacher training swim weeks are usually 3-5 days long and take place in half terms or school holidays. Reduced price teacher training swim weeks are only available to those who already swim with us.
