Stage 5

While improving stroke technique, Splish Splash Swim Ltd Stage 5 classes teach more complex water skills in preparation for the next stage.

 

Our Stage 5 swimmers should have progressed from Stage 4 or can swim a minimum distance of 25m frontcrawl and 25m backstroke. Swimmers need to be able to demonstrate that they can kick for 10m using breastroke kick and using butterfly kick.  Swimmers should be able to demonstrate the ability to maintain a basic stroke technique in all depths of the pool.

In our Stage 5 classes, the teacher will work with swimmers to improve stroke technique in all four strokes. Your child’s water skills will be developed as they learn to tread water, swim through hoops and perform a stationary scull, head first and feet first scull. Your child will learn how to execute a handstand and forward somersault in the water and they will be able to demonstrate an action for getting help.

 

How old does my child have to be to join this class?

Please see our FAQ’s page.

 

Will there be a teacher in the water with my child?

Please see our FAQ’s page.

 

Will my child get any awards?

We believe in continual assessment, placing no stress on award weeks and not putting pressure on children to perform.

In Stage 5 lessons, swimmers will achieve their:

  • Swim England 25m and 50m Distance Award;
  • Swim England 25m and 50m Backstroke Award;
  • Swim England 25m and 50 Frontcrawl Award;
  • Swim England National Plan Stage 5 Award;
  • Swim England Water Skills Grade 3 Award;
  • Swim England 15m, 20m and 25m Breastroke Award;
  • Swim England 15m, 20m and 25m Butterfly Award.

We run Stage 5 swimming lessons at AshbyBelgrave and Loughborough.

 

Welcome Back

We are really looking forward to re-opening Splish Splash Swim and welcoming all our swimmers, parents, friends and colleagues back to the pool. We’ve are extremely lucky to have received support and good well wishes from you all on reopening!!

The schools have been working extremely hard over lockdown to ensure the pools we use are ready and everything is in place for a safe environment for all when we restart our lessons.

Below are details that have been put into place for our safe return back to the pool!

As I’m sure you can appreciate, we’ve had to adapt various elements of our pools due to the current circumstances and to protect the safety of our swimmers, parents and colleagues.

Please ensure you read this information thoroughly before starting back swimming. All the measures detailed below are based on government and Swim England guidance as well as our own risk assessments.

Swimming Lessons

The general measures detailed below will apply.

We will run fewer lessons within the pool at one time to allow for both children and swimming teachers to social distance. This may affect the times we are able to offer customers.

Please arrive 10 minutes early to your lesson and wait outside in the allocated area.

On arriving, there will be a one-way system in place, directing you and your child to the lesson.

Only one parent should attend with a child, to reduce the number of people in the building.

Parents must wear a face mask on entering as well as removing outdoor shoes before they walk onto poolside.

Pupils will be required to arrive for lessons readily changed in their costumes, hats and goggles. This will help all teachers start their lessons on time.

Swim Teachers will maintain social distancing from pupils where they are able possible to do so.

All swimmers must bring their own equipment (please see check list below).

Lesson times will remain at 25 minutes (unless stated).

No changing facilities will be available at this present time.

If anyone has any concerns with the above measures, we please ask you to contact Vicky on admin@splishsplashswim.co.uk.

 

We look forward to seeing you all soon

 

Vicky and the Splish Splash Team
