Prescot Swimming Club is a competitive swimming club and consists of swimmers in all abilities and age groups from 4 to 60.
The club runs a full early swimmer program in a shallow (0.9m) teaching pool using ASA qualified and DBS checked teachers. The teaching pool operates during all the club sessions with 3 teaching groups on a Sunday (Ducklings/Turtles, Dolphins and Sharks), each of 40 minutes, and full one hour sessions during the rest of the week. The mid-week sessions are primarily reserved for higher level pupils (Sharks and Dolphins) who are looking to transition to the large pool.
The transition from teaching pool to main pool is by the discretion of the receiving coach and is usually dependant on the pupil having a good technique of the initial 3 strokes (Front Crawl, Breaststroke and Backstroke) and a basic knowledge of Butterfly. Upon the approval of the receiving coach the pupil is transferred to lane 1 but will not be expected to last for the whole 2 hours on the Sunday (until they get used to the extra workload).
The lane 1 session is designed to improve the stroke and fitness as well as introducing both diving and swimming turns into the program. The progression from lane 1 to 2 and on is all judged on the pupils time for completing a 4 x 25m Individual Medley (1 length of each stroke, Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Front Crawl). This test allows the swimmer, coach and parent to judge the progression of the pupil as well as pointing out things that could do with improvement.
With lane progression also comes the opportunity to increase the pool time to include squad swimming with our elite squad. These sessions are directed at those swimmers looking to take up competitive swimming and compete in the local and national gala events.
