Training to win and having fun!
Our Junior Swimming Program is designed for Czech and Non-Czech Citizens children from 6 years and over. The content of the program is teaching and development of swimming skills by currently the most efficient Australian method Swim Smooth, with a choice of leisure and competitive swimming. Trainings are conducted in English.
To participate in the program, children must be able to swim at least 25 m (6-8 years) and 100 m (9 years and older) and have at least a basic knowledge of English. Children do not need to speak fluent English as coaching is also explained in Czech when necessary.
Swim training is provided in groups by age, mastered swimming skills, performance and interest in leisure or competitive swimming. The groups are a maximum of 10 children to 1 coach with each group swimming in its own lane.
Children with an interest in competitive swimming creates Team "A", while competitive preparation consists of five stages Fundamentals, Swim Skills, Train to Train, Train to Compete and Train to Win.
Children with an interested only in the leisure swimming creates Team "B", while leisure preparation consist of only two stages Fundamental and Skills Swim.
The classification of children into the five stages is made by age and swimming ability. Age categories are approximate with more skilled children being able to move to a higher stage at an earlier age and less able children remaining at a stage longer to complete their development.
