Adult stroke correction

If you are tired of being slow or having to rest every fifty metres this class is for you. Our instructors will analyse your stroke and give you advice on how to correct it by using drills that will improve your style as well as help to increase fitness and endurance.

The main focus in this level is on the freestyle stroke. Most participants will be aiming to improve breathing, efficiency of stroke and build stamina. Other strokes can be explored and developed if the group is willing and capable to move forward.

Many elementary skills will be revisited to ensure basics of body position, breathing, floating and recovery have been mastered by the group.

Adult Stroke Correction is for adults who have a basic stroke and breathing skills and can swim approximately 50 metres freestyle without stopping.

Classes commence in the indoor 20 metre pool, to cater for quality practice rather than quantity in the early stages. As the group progresses, classes can move to the oudoor pool to lengthen and challenge students as they show readiness.

Adult swim-fit

  • Are ‘not so confident squad’ swimmer.
  • Are able to swim at least 200m of freestyle non-stop.
