After the first day of the development programme, it is safe to say that the kids are loving it!

With the majority of children from areas which have never been exposed to the sport knowing very little, day one involved the basics. From some basic swimming drills, a treading demo and a little passing all thrown into the mix, you could see that they were being taught something completely new. Many of the children, having just “graduated” from learn-to-swim programmes also run at the pool, something that did not involve just standard lane swimming was something they could really get into!

The programme will continue Monday to Friday, and soon we hope to have them playing games amongst themselves!
