What are they?
Transitional lessons are designed to help with the step between survival lessons and stroke lessons (learning to swim the four form strokes).
At Kids Aquatic Survival School (KASS) for a long time we have said that swimming improves swimming so if you can’t get to the pool or don’t want to get in, these are the lessons for you. Normally they run for a maximum 15 minutes and work on the survival skills of Swim Float Swim but they also introduce different elements to swimming. Like kickboards noodles and diving to get submerged objects are a few of the things they do in these lessons.
Although your child never forgets the skills that they have learnt they will be better at retaining them if they are in the pool practicing. It also allows your child to improve on their swimming skills that they have learnt and expand into another world of swimming.
The perfect time to do these lessons is winter. It is unlikely that you will be in your pool over winter and a lot of parents don’t like getting in the pool themselves. Some of our pools are heated and indoors, so why not get a qualified KASS instructor to do it for you.
