Ammie Hunt started on one of the summer courses, she stayed on, (below) and she completed her ONE MILE DISTANCE SWIM in less than a year!

This was an eight day course over two weeks.

The children were superb on the recent Intense Course, with FOUR children swimming 30 lengths which is 300 meters (400 meters is a quater of a mile), three of the four were 100% non swimmers and in arm bands when they started.   There were nine children on the course, EVERYone learnt to swim, even wee Daniel who was only just 3 yrs old, he swam a short distance on his back.

Everyone else swam five lenghts or more in one go, and they all learnt breaststroke, backstroke, jumping in, safety skills AND we even squeezed in some front crawl. Amy was the swimmer of the week as she swam 300 meters breaststroke, she also learnt backstroke, and Amy could swim front crawl with the correct breathing by the end of the 8 days.  

Please see below the wonderful achievements of some of the children on the course.

 Amy & Bobby

Amy was the swimmer of the week as she was just outstanding! Amy started as a non swimmer in armbands however at the end of the course Amy had,

1. Swam 300 meters breaststroke (no arm bands)

2. Swam 200 meters full backstroke (no arm bands)

3. Swam 20 meters full front crawl (no arm bands)

4. Learnt survival skills.

This was totally amazing for Amy to reach this level in eight lessons FIVE GOLD STARS to Amy.

 

Bobby:

Bobby was able to swim

50 meters full backstroke

20 meters breaststroke

learnt survival skills. Well done Bobby who is Amy's little brother.

 

Megan

Megan warmed the cockils of my heart, as she was just about one of the most nervous children I had met regarding swimming in the pool, Megan was terrified and there were many tears, and I really felt for this lovely little girl. HOWEVER, at the end of the course Megan swam;

300 Meters Breaststroke (no arm bands)

100 Meters Backstroke ( no arm bands)

To her (and our), surprise Megan was able to jump in the deep end, go underwater and get herself back

to the edge of the pool as one of our safety skills without her arm bands.

 

I was so happy for Megan and her mum as Megans mum said she had really been through a lot of trouble with Megan and her swimming tears, and thought it would never happen. Megan is now lovling underwater swimming and is learning front crawl in my weekly classes.

2. Swam 200 meters full backstroke (no arm bands)
