Here at Lydney we follow ASA Learn to Swim Pathway. This means your child will be following a nationally recognised syllabus and awards system produced by swimming’s governing body...
The world renowned 'Learn to Swim' programme is used in over 1,000 swimming programmes in the UK and internationally and has already taught millions of children to swim. It continues to be by far the most successful grass-roots programme in British sport. The ASA Learn to Swim Pathway incorporates the following Frameworks:
The Learn to Swim Pathway maintains a focus on fun and games to help children develop the skills they need to become competent swimmers. Children are guided from the ASA Foundation Framework to get babies (as young as six months) started, to the ASA Learn to Swim Framework where they learn basic skills through to more advanced techniques, after which they can attend the ASA Aquatic Skills Framework to develop sports skills in water polo, synchronised swimming, diving, rookie lifeguard and swim squads.
The Kellogg’s ASA Awards support the British Gas ASA Learn To Swim Pathway. Covering all ten stages of the syllabus, the colour-coded badges and certificates have been designed to reward and encourage children to learn the core skills of each individual award stage, as well as ensuring that they have fun in aquatic sport.
All the instructors are experienced and fully trained to deliver the ASA Swim Pathway. They will provide you with feedback on your child’s development as well as their progress through the awards system. The instructors are all CRB checked and supervised by our swim course coordinator.
