Booking now open for Intensive Swim Courses for children

8th May 2018

The Mardyke Arena UCC will host 4 weeks of Intensive Swim Lessons for Children.

Our swim programme offers a wonderful way of fast-tracking a child’s development and provides a healthy structured activity for them during the summer holidays. Our intensive course will further develop the skills children have already
acquired and assist in refining technique to make swimming less of a challenge and more of an enjoyable experience.

Each course offers different levels:

  • Beginner Class (Level 1 & Level 2) will be to gain confidence, by playing games and learning basic Fundamentals including hopping, bobbing, floating, breath control, basic safety rules etc. in order to make the water their friend. This group will take place in our learner pool.
  • Improver Class (Level 3) Children will further work on these skills, gliding, streamlining, sculling, sitting dives and learning to retrieve objects from the ground with plenty of fun and games. This group will take place in the shallow end of the main pool.
  • Deep End (Level 4 & Level 5) The deep-end group will work on stroke development, treading water, breath control, straddle jumps etc again having great fun, learning through play. The children will work on developing a greater sense of self-safety by understanding their own limits.
  • Lane Swim (Completed Level 5) Lane swim group will continue to develop and refine the four strokes, Butterfly, Backstroke, Breastroke and Frontcrawl, while continuing to build strength, stamina and endurance. Diving, somersaults, timing, relay races etc will all be a part of this session.
