Improve your swimming skills quickly with our intensive swimming course
Crash course starting June 25th 2018
Swimming is one of the most fundamental and useful activities in human culture; but in order to acquire or improve it, time intensive lessons are usually required. When time is scarce, our intensive swimming course can help you to still find time for it and you can devote yourself entirely to improving your swimming skills.
Our intensive swimming course or crash course is suitable for all age classes. Usually, swimming is learned at a young age, often as a preparation for swimming lessons at school. Swimming is a fundamental skill in our culture. From making sure your child is safe when it gets into the water, to the joy of all the social activities taking place in and around a swimming pool, bathing lake or river, swimming is essential. Water can be a treacherous element and it is a good idea to be able to move about in it, both on the surface as well as diving beneath it. For this, we offer our intensive swimming course.
The Crash course contains 10 lessons about 45 minutes with a maximum of 11 participants. The course takes place from Monday to Saturday with two instructors.

As you can see, we will systematically start with the basics to address your child individually and personally. Important psychometric characteristics are observed and assessed so that we can adjust the focus of the lessons precisely. It is essential, of course, to gain the ability to keep your head above water. Only this allows proper breathing. In the "natural" posture, the face would be in the water. Children often do not have the necessary neck muscles yet. This risks the body then being oriented perpendicular to the water surface – the child “stands” in the water. Through special training, this small obstacle can be successfully overcome. This is, of course, taught along with the right breathing technique, so that panic inducing situations are avoided. The knowledge of optimal behavior in all situations allows the child to bring him- or herself up to the surface without swallowing water even if the child would happen to fall into water all of a sudden.
Even more important is getting used to being in water and testing and finding out how well a child orients and navigates in it. The initial fear of water is quite natural, and the reduction of gravity may lead to initial confusion. For this purpose, we teach special techniques and methods to the children, in order to be able to deal quickly and safely with both common and unusual situations in the water.
Based on these findings, tests and exercises, we can give you an overview on the child's performance. Safety always comes first. Often, some children need to be helped and encouraged while others must be slowed down a little. Too much enthusiasm at the beginning can have negative effects, too, so we focus on calm swimming behavior in and around the water.
