Swimming Coaching

Swimming Coaching


Swimming as an exercise is popular as an all-around body developer and is also taught for lifesaving purposes.  Swimming is a great exercise as well as a great pass time for people of all ages.

There are a variety of strokes that we get to see in the swimming pool. The breaststroke is believed to be the oldest of strokes and is much used in lifesaving and recreational swimming as well as in competitive swimming. The stroke is especially effective in rough water. The butterfly stroke, used only in competition, differs from the breaststroke in arm action. In the butterfly the arms are brought forward above the water. The backstroke began to develop early in the 20th century. In that stroke, the swimmer’s body position is supine, the body being held as flat and streamlined as possible. The crawl, the stroke used in competitive freestyle swimming, has become the fastest of all strokes. It is also the almost unanimous choice of stroke for covering any considerable distance.
