Learn to Swim

Learn to Swim in Cannock with Chase Swimming Club.

 

Starfish Seahorse Otter Seal Dolphin

Chase swimming Club have five teaching groups as well as our Competitive Junior and Senior Squads.

These groups are split to encourage learing through a shared joy and ability within each level.

At Chase Swimming Club we teach complete beginners to swim from four years of age in our sessions on Fridays and Sundays at Cheslyn Hay. We follow the National Teaching Plan, which helps swimmers develop water confidence and skills as well as stroke work. We start with the Level 1 badge and work through the different levels up to Level 10. In addition to this we also do distance badges with the swimmers, starting with 5 meters and working up to 1500 meters.

We aim to get the swimmers to a reasonable standard in the four main strokes which will enable them to join our pre squad group by the time they are 8 years old when we can work on skills to prepare them for entry into the club’s competitive junior squad.

Swimmers progress through structured ability groups, where the four main strokes (breaststroke, backstroke, front crawl and butterfly) are developed.

In the year that the swimmer will be 9 years of age they will be old enough to start representing the club at galas and may be invited to join the junior squad. At this stage they will be expected to swim at least 3 times a week.
