This book is the result of many years listening to cries of help from students and novice teachers. The authors have combined their knowledge and experience of teaching, coaching and tutoring to create a unique, progressive way to teach swimming. Each stroke has a detailed description and discussion is enhanced through in-depth drawings and photographs. A “building block” programme is presented focusing on a new framework for teaching. Main problems are identified and solutions given. This is followed by a unique “improvement circle” concept helping the teacher take their pupils beyond the learner stage.
