Butterfly can get easier!

19 February 2015

For any average lap swimmer butterfly may be one of the more difficult strokes that you attempt; trying to get the arms over while still kicking and fitting in a breath at some stage before your lungs explode.

Learn to Swim kicks off with a splash!

Learn to Swim kicks off with a splash!

3 December 2014

On the 5th of November Lambton's Learn to Swim began. We had seahorses, turtles, seals, dolphins and sharks enter the water. Some children were nervous and others loved it. No matter how whey were feeling our great Learn to Swim Instructors had it covered. The children kicked, splashed, blew their bubbles, learnt to do yo-yo breathing, practiced rockets, practiced floating, practiced the basics of freestyle and many more valuable water skills. It was safe to say that our first lessons were a great success. Seahorses are our beginner level. This level is an introduction to swimming. In this level we focus on body position and confidence in the water. Skills include the development of water confidence, freestyle kicking, rockets with bubbles etc. Turtles is the next level. This is a progression from the seahorse level and this works towards a beginner level freestyle which emphasises body position as well as arm/leg/breathing combinations. Skills learnt in this level include single arm rockets and one arm breathing. When confident at this level the turtles progress to the seals level. At this level we strengthen the freestyle skills and change focus to improving backstroke skills. From here the participants progress to a dolphin level where they are taught high elbow freestyle and breastroke and butterfly kicks are now introduced. Backstroke is touched on and at this level the timing becomes the focus. When self reliant at this level the participants then progress to the shark level. This level focuses on breastroke. Skills in this level include dives, streamline kicks, breastroke and butterfly finishes and many more.

When I'm swimming, I'm in the moment.

When I'm swimming, I'm in the moment.

The first bit of a swim is my favourite: the glide. I put my shoulders under and ready myself, lift my feet behind me to connect with the wall and push off, arms arrowed ahead and body ... for a few seconds ... suspended. Even in the thinking, I can feel the wall under my foot, really trying to get this bit right because it's so satisfying, a good glide. In my mind I'm a line, aerodynamic and forceful. Then engage. Pull the first arm back, kick a foot, start the clockwork, head still down before the first breath is needed.
