In the Turtles Class, swimmers will work towards achieving a good kick technique in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly. Through focused drills and targeted training, our coaches will help swimmers develop strength, power, and efficiency in their kicks across all four strokes.
The Turtles Class introduces diving techniques to swimmers, teaching them proper body positioning, approach, and entry into the water. We emphasise safety and technique, empowering swimmers to execute dives confidently and efficiently.
A comprehensive understanding of basic drills is crucial for continued improvement. We ensure that swimmers in Turtles Class acquire knowledge of various drills specific to each stroke. These drills aid in refining technique, enhancing efficiency, and addressing specific areas for improvement.
