Octos achieve through our SWiM5 to SWiM6 stages.
Current SWiMmers can log in now to keep track of their progress.
It is hugely important to us that our skill sets are robust and each one is there to build on those before it, focusing our teachers on developing capable young swimmers with great technique!
Each stage comprises 10 skills altogether, with the main developmental aims outlined below:
Confidence gained, this is where we teach step-by-step techniques of the main strokes, along with personal safety and skills to make a competent, efficient swimmer.
how to get arms over the water for front crawl
how to co-ordinate arms & legs at the same time
how to stay safe using palms & legs
swimming 50 Metres
Celebrating achievements as they happen is crucial to continued success! This is where our SWiMPortal really makes a difference...
A SWiMStage is achieved once each skill is mastered and performed confidently every time.
Our teachers update progress on poolside, and your Octo's SWiMPortal shows all their current evaluations using a clear star system, enabling you and them to see how they are progressing at any point.
