Learning and Improving Swimming OZ 


Swimming Beginners and Improvers in Newquay| Cornwall

We all know how important swimming is in cornwall, learning and imporving are important for so many reasons, but the main reason being _ we live by the sea!

Safety is super important but fine tuning skills and swimming strokes is right up there at the top.

Here is a list of Swimming Equipment you might expect to find in use from Beginner to PRO!

1. Arm Bands ( Swim Discs )

There are several swim discs avalible on the market, but all mainly do the same thing..a really good job at supporting the young swimmer.

Swimming discs are great in such a way that they are soft and can be removed in sections, as the swimmer improves.

2.Inflatable Arm Bands

These are by far the most reconised swimming arm bands on the market, they offer a perfect fit but can make the childs arms a little sore somtimes.

3.The Swim Woggle

A very simple swim aid, perfect for learning to swim, at any age.. these tube like floats offer great support, they have a tight fit around the body if used properly, they offer great support!

4.The Swim kick board.

These come in many sizes, these allow the swimmer to reach and support the body during the learning process

5.Swim Training Fins.

The Swim Training fin is perfect for any age, the fin or swimmingh flipper offers additional support while kicking, they can be used by very young swimmers all way through to advanced and world class!

6. Egg Flips.

Small plastic have rounded half balls, made by Zoggs, these offer a great little way of getting small learning to blow and place the face near the water!

And So..the ASA has revealed that one in five adults is unable to swim!, which shows a need for adult swimming lessons which cater to the needs of older swimmers, is this you?

The ASA Adult Swimming Framework understands that adults have very different needs to children when learning to swim.

Adults have different motivations, learn in different ways and have completely different needs to children learning to swim.
