Home Activities

Improve your swimming lesson progress with these simple activities you can practice at home.

 

Breathing

The purpose of this activity is to teach swimmers how to improve breath control. With better breath control, swimmers become more relaxed, confident and skills become easier to learn.

 

Paddling

The purpose of this activity is to teach swimmers how to improve dog paddling. Dog paddling is a basic stroke that helps swimmers learn the fundamentals of swimming, enabling them to swim short distances to safety.

 

Torpedo

The purpose of this activity is to teach swimmers how to improve torpedo position. Correct torpedo position reduces water resistance against swimmer’s body, allowing for a longer and faster torpedo float.

 

Kicking

The purpose of this activity is to improve Freestyle kicking. Kicking in a torpedo position with the arms above the head, develops core strength and enables better Freestyle technique.

 

Arms
