ORCAS SWIMMING PROGRAMME
Our mission is to teach children to enjoy water, to learn to swim and ultimately to be water safe. Beginners need to develop the basic skills of water confidence, streamlining, recovery and propulsion. These skills need to be taught in an easy-to remember sequence. Once learned it forms the foundation for all future stroke development and can be reinforced as the strokes are further developed and refined. These basic mobility skills are of immense value to swimming at all levels of stroke development through to competitive swimming and lifesaving. We will ensure that the children achieve a high level of mobility in the aquatic environment.
