Survival swimming course

Multiple studies have shown that children can forget the learned swimming techniques after having received their certificate. The techniques are (greatly) weakened or sometimes lost almost completely due to a lack of practice.

About one in four children cannot meet the examination requirements a year and a half after obtaining the B certificate. That is one of the most striking conclusions from current research by the “Zwemanalyselab Windesheim Zwolle (Zwembadbranche, 2020).

This is why we recently started to organize survival/refresher lessons for children with an A, B or C certificate. The purpose of this 4-day survival/brush-up course is to playfully focus and improve (forgotten/weakened) techniques. There are also several survival assignments like going into the water with a balance bike.

The lessons are in Almere Tussen de Vaarten. Costs: € 40,00.

The course is mainly organized during the school holidays. It is not known when the next course will be given due to the coronavirus. We will update the data as soon as possible.
