School Holiday Crash Courses

What Is A Swimming Crash Course?

Swimming crash courses are 5-day courses that offer swimming lessons during school long holidays like summer and short breaks like school half-terms.

We offer swimming crash courses in south London during weekdays, Monday to Friday, in the morning times over the summer school holidays.

Swimming crash courses are excellent not only for keeping children active during school holidays and catching up with swimming. This is specially important almost all need to make up for missing out on swim lessons due to various reasons.

So if you are one of those parents or an adult who is looking for a way to have a fast catch-up with swimming, crash courses are a great option.

What Do We Do in Our Swimming Crash Courses?

In terms of teaching methods, swimming crash courses are similar to our weekly lessons.

But rather than having one lesson once a week during school term time (weekly school term-time lessons), children can do 30 mins or 60 mins lessons once a day for 5 days on consecutive days from Monday to Friday, in one week or two or more, during school holidays depending on the length of the holidays.

During long school holidays you can do 10 lessons over two weeks, which is almost equivalent to a term of weekly lessons.

In this way, instead of doing traditional weekly lessons, you can very conveniently be squeezed in the equivalent of a term of lessons in two weeks and save journey time. 

The Main Goals of Crash Courses are:

  • Boost water confidence
  • Improve swimming skills and technique

Our swimming crash courses, which will be delivered in 25 meter pool in Southfields or Wimbledon we can offer lessons for all levels.

The younger and less experienced children who are normally at beginners and beginners plus levels- get a massive boost in their confidence and have a chance to be introduced and learn the more basic technical skills like putting face in the water, kicking legs and how to float on front and back independently.

More experienced swimmers (stage 4 and above of Swim England National Teaching Plan for Swimming) can do the 60-minute classes with a focus on breath control, body position, and propulsion in the water and working more on the four competitive strokes.

For children who already have a solid swimming foundation, technique and improving stamina is also part of intensive classes.

We also offer 1:1 adult lessons in our intensive swimming courses.
