The Development Program refines butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle strokes and introduces swimmers to competitive swimming. Correct starts, dives and turns are practiced with the aim to swim a fluent and legal 100m individual medley.
The Development Program is divided into 4 key learning stages:
Stage 1 - Ensures a strong foundation in the development of the four competitive swim strokes.
Stage 2 - Builds on the stroke foundation and hones endurance through kicking and full stroke swim sets.
Stage 3 - Focuses on the emphasis on proper race legal technique in all strokes and skills.
Stage 4 - Upon completion of Development Stage 4, swimmers will perform a fluent and legal 100 metre individual medley.
