LEVEL FOUR – ADVANCED BEGINNER: TRAIN

In Level Four, a swimmer has had some introduction to freestyle and backstroke and during this stage she refines her stroke and kicking technique and furthers her ability to integrate smooth, rhythmic rotary breathing. This stage can last for years. It is focused on building a swimmer’s independence and getting her to a point where she can be safe, competent, and take care of herself in the water.


“Things won’t go perfect.
It’s all about how you adapt from
those things and learn from mistakes."
- Michael Phelps

Kick Technique*: – At this stage, it can be helpful to isolate kicking and stroking activities so that your child can focus on one without having to worry about the other. Kickboards allow him to eliminate the stroke and rotary breath and just work his legs.


TIP FROM CATHY BENNETT:

Kicking drills can be ‘spiced up’ by turning them into a race against the clock or a sibling or friend.
