Competitive Development

Advanced Swimming Lessons for Stage 7 Plus

At Strokes Ahead, our competitive development sessions are designed for children who have already completed stage 7 of the Swim England Learn to Swim framework. These sessions last 60 minutes and cover skills needed to complete stage 8, 9 & 10.

We also accommodate children into these sessions who want to keep fit by doing either one or two 60 minute sessions with us rather than transitioning into a swimming club at stage 7.

Stage 8

In Stage 8, swimmers will be working towards completing a 400m length training set, stroke turns and dive start with transition skills.

Stage 9

In Stage 9, swimmers will be working towards completing an 800m length training set, building a 100m Individual Medley and competitive starts with transition and stroke skills.

Stage 10

In Stage 10, swimmers will be working towards a 1600m length training set, building a 200m Individual Medley and racing relay takeovers.
