This stage focuses on safe entry to the water, including jumping in, basic floating, travel on the front and back up to a distance of 5m, and rotating the body to regain an upright position. Swimmers may use armbands and floats
More on developing safe entries into the water - including submersion - travelling up to 10m on the front and back, and progressing water safety knowledge and body rotation skills from the previous stage
This stage aids the learner in developing the understanding of buoyancy through a range of skills. Also covered is refining kicking techniques for all strokes. The swimmer has to swim 10m to a standard directed by the ASA
During this stage swimmers develop 'watermanship' through sculling and treading water skills and body complete rotation. They perform all strokes for 10m to a standard provided by the ASA in the Learn to Swim Framework
Developing effective swimming skills - including coordinated breathing - across all strokes is the focus of this stage. Learners also have to swim a distance of 25m using a stroke of their choice. Children learn about aspects of water safety.
Children develop quality stroke techniques up to 100m incorporating the skills they have learned, and combine them to develop a linked routine. They also complete an obstacle course combining skills accomplished through stages 1-7.
