It has been shown that children learn and retain new skills more easily over short, intensive periods of time. Our short intensive swim courses really help children to build confidence and improve technique.
The courses are also fun and can be the ideal activity to do in the holidays. Weekly customers often book these extra classes to get maximum improvement in their kids swimming. This is also an ideal way to come and see if you like Lifestyle Swimming Academy’s way of teaching without committing to a term’s swimming lessons.
The main emphasis of our crash courses will be centred on those areas in most need of development, from water confidence and basic skills to advanced stroke technique and skill development.
The crash course is also perfect to get your kids ready for the school gala.
Our crash courses are suitable for children from the ages of 2 to 14 years old, from complete beginners through to confident and established swimmers who need to perfect their techniques.
Just like our regular weekly lessons, these courses have a maximum number of 4 children per class and course will consist of a half-hour lesson per class at the same time on 3 consecutive days.
Our next crash course will run from Monday 2 December to Wednesday 4 December, 2019. The course will be for 3 consecutive 30 minute lessons, except for the Fitness classes which are 45 minute classes.
The lesson time slots will start at around 2:30 pm (final times to be confirmed). Children of similar ability will be grouped together.
